IMG_1013Homeward Trails relies heavily upon donations to support our rescue efforts. Our operations are solely reliant on donations and our adoption fees. We receive no government funding. Donations allow us to take in many special needs animals who would otherwise be left behind to be euthanized. Help us give them the chance at life they deserve!
