GIANT kitten adoption event. THIS SATURDAY, June 19th at PetCo Unleashed, Ballston.  Homeward Trails has more than 75 kittens of adoptable age in our system right now and 30+ will be in attendance at this event.

**Can’t make it to the event but are in the market for a kitten or two? Contact us at info@homewardtrails.org and we’d be happy to work with you! We will have dozens of adorable kittens ages 8 weeks and up. Note that we place kittens in pairs only unless another young cat resides in the home to keep him/her company. Please spread the word widely so we can find these lovebugs homes!

See you there!!

Meet the kittens!

 

Meow Manor is our temporary housing facility for cats located in Fairfax Station. VA. Volunteers are needed to take care of the cats, feed them, scoop the litter and give them tons of love and attention. Volunteering is sooooo rewarding – you get to help out homeless kitties and get your kitty fix!
We have morning and evening shifts available seven days a week and volunteers sign up at their convenience. There’s no set schedule so it’s whatever works for you!
If you’re interested in learning more about volunteering please email sueb@homewardtrails.org.

This might be the cutest thing you’ll see all year! Do yourself a favor and watch this super fun video of the Caps Canines Puppy Playoffs featuring adorable athletes from Homeward Trails (sorry folks, they are already adopted).

You can read more about the video here.

We are so grateful for our incredible partnership with the Washington Capitals and the MSE Foundation and wish our Caps the best of luck in the Stanley Cup Playoffs! #ALLCAPS

THANK YOU! We have so much to celebrate. On April 10 you helped us win $500 and together we raised over $23,000 for our animals during Spring2ACTion! Thanks to all of you who donated and helped to spread the word!

Thank you to our Spring2ACTion Partners!

Kids ages 8-13 are invited to join us for our energetic and educational summer camp – Camp Waggin’ Tails!

During our week long camp held at the Homeward Trails Adoption Center located in Fairfax Station, VA, kids will learn all about animal rescue, responsible pet ownership, positive dog training, hear from a variety of pet professionals, and work hands on with carefully selected adoptable dogs while engaging in fun games and projects designed to reinforce what we have learned.

Looking to do something fun and rewarding on the weekend?

Why not get started as a Homeward Trails Adoption Counselor? Adoption Counselors are volunteers who are trained specifically to interact with perspective adopters at the Homeward Trails Adoption Center! You will share info on the dogs, gather info from the applicant, work with the Adoption Center staff to ensure a good match…and potentially play a key role in sending dogs into their forever homes.
We need folks NOW who are willing to commit 3 hours on a weekend…just once a month! Just 3 hours can help send more dogs home more quickly, thus allowing us to have space to rescue more. Imagine – just 3 hours of your time can save dozens of lives!
You will be trained and fully supported by the HT staff as you get acclimated to your role. It’s fun, you’ll learn a lot and you’ll literally be saving lives.
Our next Adoption Counselor training session will be held on Sunday, August 11 from 4:30-6:00 PM at the Homeward Trails Adoption Center located in Fairfax Station, VA.

We currently need foster homes for dogs, puppies, cats and kittens!  Fosters are one or our greatest resources because more foster homes=more animals we can save!

The Homeward Trails foster home program is a great way to help animals in need. By providing an animal a temporary home, the foster has given that animal another chance at life that he deseserves. Homeward Trails is always on the look out for people willing to open their hearts and their homes to animals in need.  Learn more today on ways you can help Homeward Trails care for animals in need.
