Tired of all this cold weather?  Get yourself a fabulous pair of Homeward Trails socks.  Your toes will be toasty and you’ll get a warm fuzzy feeling from helping animals in need.  These fun and fashionable socks feature photos of some of our adorable adoptees and will help us raise money to save more homeless animals. We need a minimum of ten orders by February 22 in order for the socks to be printed. The more we sell, the more money we raise for the animals.

Order yours today!

On February 2 Homeward Trails supporters packed Tartufo Restaurant in Tenleytown to help raise money for the animals!

Tartufo donated a generous 15% of the sales for the day netting a contribution of $610.  What a wonderful way to raise some much needed funds!

Many thanks to Tartufo for your generosity and delicious food and to all who helped make this event a huge success by dining and helping to spread the word!

Be sure to support this great restaurant and friend to HT!
