Attention kids!  We want you to help raise money for the animals!

It super easy to help animals in need by raising money to pay for their medical expenses by holding a a lemonade stand or bake sale.  Every little bit of money helps!  You can do this in your own neighborhood or every weekend at our Adoption Center located in Fairfax Station, VA.   We would love to have groups come to the Adoption Center every Saturday and Sunday from noon – 4:00 PM during the spring and summer months.  We’ll provide the table and chairs, you supply the goodies to sell and some handmade advertising!

To get started just e-mail homershelpers@homewardtrails.org!

Kittens are cute, but also expensive, and we need your help to save and these babies get them ready for adoption. Litters of kittens will start arriving very soon!

Every kitten season is a mix of pleasure and sadness. We want to help everyone but the shelters quickly fill up with litter after litter. Many of the litters come to us very sick with malnourished moms, upper respiratory infections and parasites. One sick litter can deplete our resources quickly.

Even the healthy litters require blood tests for Feline Leukemia and FIV, a series of vaccines, deworming and flea treatments and huge amounts of food and litter.

You can help by making a tax deductible donation to our kitten fundraiser as we prepare to help the moms and kittens in their journey for a better life.

Donate to our kitten fundraiser today!
