THANK YOU to every single person who donated during Spring2Action, and everyone who spread the word and encouraged family and friends to donate. We are so grateful and we could not have done it without each and every one of you!

 We raised over $27,000 for our animals in one day. Hundreds of lives will be saved by your generosity.

Here’s a quick run down of prizes we won:
2nd Place Most Donors -$2,500
 8 AM Power Hour (Donors) – $500

ACTion Hero Prize – $100

That’s $3,100 in prizes on top of the more than $24,000 we raised – truly amazing!

We will do it all again on June 8th for our 2nd online fundraiser of the year, Do More 24…so please mark your calendars and put aside just $24 to donate on that day.

We could not do what we do without your amazing and ongoing support. The animals and humans of HT thank you!!
THANK YOU!

Here’s a super simple way to help raise money for Homeward Trails over the next month – just dine at Vola’s Dockside Grill​ and Hi-Tide Lounge in Alexandria anytime between February 10 and March 10 and use the code 330-600-010 and Homeward Trails will receive 20% of designated sales.

This is a fantastic opportunity offered to select non-profits who had very successful fundraising through last year’s Spring2Action​. If we raise the most money of all participating non-profits we will get an extra $500 donation so dine often and help spread the word!

Vola’s is located at 101 N. Union St., Alexandria, VA on the Old Town waterfront.

We are so excited to announce an awesome partnership that Homeward Trails has just signed with Crumbs & Whiskers Cat Cafe in Washington, DC. This unique place houses homeless cats in a quaint, relaxing cafe setting allowing guests to spend time with kitties while sipping lattes. Homeward Trails will now be the exclusive rescue partner of Crumbs & Whiskers which means we now have the opportunity to save the lives of even more cats. Increased space to house them and increased traffic from potential adopters means more lives saved. There will be volunteer opportunities available around this new endeavor and we can’t wait to get started. Our cats moved in on December 4 and are available for you to meet and adopt there. Yippee!!

We will be working on several fun opportunities for you all to visit the cafe and meet our kitties. Stay tuned. Meanwhile, check them out online (http://crumbsandwhiskers.com/) and make an appointment to go visit for an afternoon.
