Dog Adoption Event & Fundraiser – Mutts & Mimosas at the Finn

What could be better than Mimosas with pups?  Join some Homeward Trails adoptable dogs and have brunch at the Finn!  Maybe you’ll find your forever friend!

Could one of the animals attending this event be the right pet for you? Come find out! Some of our dogs who are looking for homes will be waiting to meet you and Homeward Trails volunteers will be available to talk to you about our animals available for adoption and our adoption process. If you meet a dog who’s a good potential match, you can submit an adoption questionnaire! Or you can learn how you can help homeless animals by fostering, volunteering or donating!

Potential Adopters- More dogs and cats will likely get signed up so check back as it gets closer to the event.

    Hi! I'm Phoebe and I was rescued from a scary, crowded shelter in West Virginia! I enjoy long walks and hanging out with my family. I am not a fan of small dogs or cats (yuck!) and would like an adult, quiet home! A fenced in yard would be fabulous!! I'm a very very loyal, loving guardian of my family and would really like a home to call my own.

    Polite, respectful and well-behaved in the home! Phoebe's disposition is sweet and gentle. She will melt your heart when she looks at you with her big, brown eyes. Peaceful and compliant while in her crate. She is an excellent companion for outdoor running, hiking and walking adventures, very fit and athletic and enjoys passing time by looking out windows.

    Phoebe startles easily right now, but is getting less timid/on edge as each day passes in her foster home.

    She was a hunter in a previous life, so please no small dogs, cats, or children.

    Pheobe is a good balance between independent and enjoying spending time with her humans.

    The adoption fee for this dog is $350. This fee INCLUDES spay/neuter and microchip.

    Every adopted Homeward Trails animal comes with 30 days of free pet health insurance. We are proud to partner with the following veterinarians who offer a free first exam for your animal, exclusively for HT adopters: Caring Hands Animal Hospital, Palisades Veterinary Clinic, Sunshine Animal Hospital and Clarendon Animal Care
    Finally, be sure to ask us about getting a free 30-minute phone consult with a professional dog trainer at Fur-Get Me Not within the first 30 days of adopting - just for HT adopters. Start your new dog out on the right foot with this valuable, expert advice and guidance FREE!

    You can save animals like this one by becoming a foster! Fosters are like way stations between high kill shelters and forever homes. We need fosters so that we can save dogs before they are euthanized at the shelters. If you are interested in becoming a foster, please check out our information about fostering by visiting
