Sponsor These Shelter Animals In Time to Bring Them to Safety

The animals featured here are some of the hundreds Homeward Trails is asked to rescue each week. We have limited time to get them  safely to rescue. Space and money are the greatest barriers to us saying yes to each request. It costs approximately $150 to rescue each dog and $100 to rescue each cat. This includes basic vet care, fuel for transport, and housing once they arrive at HT.

Please note that we make every effort to rescue all animals that are fully sponsored. Rare exceptions occur if the shelter secures a home locally with short notice or an unexpected serious medical or behavioral issue arises preventing the transport of the animal. In these cases, your sponsorship funds will be applied immediately to another animal in need if the animal you sponsored is no longer available for transfer to Homeward Trails.

Your sponsorship of an animal will save a life in real time. Every donation helps save a life.

Please, consider a tax-deductible donation today to help these animals. They deserve a 2nd chance at life. And together, we can give them that.

Bean was living the good life. He had a loving owner that he adored. He was treated kindly and provided with all his needs. However, after 3 years, Bean’s life has taken a terrible turn for the worse. Bean’s owner lost their job and immediately started struggling to take care of him. Before he knew it, Bean was being surrendered to a rural VA shelter as his owner was moving away. Day after day, this sweet boy sits in his cement kennel waiting for his owner to return. There is no way to make him understand that this is now his life. As time passes, he gets more and more depressed. Our heart is breaking that this is as good as Bean’s life is going to get, unless Homeward Trails is able to raise enough money to get this handsome boy to the DC area to start his life over. Don’t let Bean’s past dictate his future. Please donate to this boy’s rescue today!

River is such a cute 9 month old puppy. It is hard to believe he was found as a stray in rural southern VA. This sweetheart had spent an unknown amount of time outside, scrounging for food and doing all he could to survive. After such hardship, it is no surprise that River is likely infested with worms and in overall fair condition. A sweet pup like River shouldn’t be just barely getting by, but rather thriving with love and good health in a wonderful family’s home! Even though he has had a very tough short life so far, you can tell he is so happy. A constantly wagging tail and an adorable butt wiggle melts your heart. Unfortunately, River’s tail wagging may be fading if he has to spend any more time at the rural VA shelter he was brought to. The shelter has to make very critical decisions when their cement kennels get full, and HT can’t bear to leave River behind to potential meet a very sad fate. All that is standing between a life in a shelter and a loving family forever is your sponsorship. Please donate to this wiggle butt and he’ll be sure to show his appreciate to everyone he meets!

Ellie was found languishing on the side of the road in West Virginia. Having to contend with the summer heat, dehydration, and a lack of food would have left her at major risk. It is pure luck that rescuers found her when they did. Ellie appears to be 8 months old and it is not clear how long she has had to struggle on her own. Despite this hardship she still has a sweet nature and likes being with people.

With people going back to in person work many dogs that were adopted during lockdown are being surrendered and shelters are increasingly overrun. We know that Ellie’s best chance at being rehomed is to transport her to Homeward Trails to make sure she has everything she needs before settling with a new family. We are determined to find her a loving home that understands the true commitment of adoption. Please help us get Ellie the help she needs and donate today.

Leonard is a happy go lucky Aussie mix found as a stray in West Virginia. He loves people which is why it is so sad he was alone. On the streets Leonard would have been at extreme risk from the elements and violence especially with her sweet personality. He would have struggled to find clean water and adequate food. Having to face the extreme heat of this summer with no shelter would have left him vulnerable to dehydration. It is lucky he was found when he was. He likely would not have lasted much longer on his own.
Now he is safe in a shelter but he deserves more than a cage and a concrete floor. Leonard is 2 years old and has a lot of years and love to give to a committed family. At Homeward Trails he will be paired with the right people that can give him a full and happy life.

Maple is as sweet as can be and still so young. She was found afraid and alone in the summer heat of Southern Virginia. Being on the street she risked being hit by a car and attacked wildlife or vicious humans. Luckily rescuers were able to bring her into a shelter to ensure she has the proper car but that’s just the start of Maple’s next chapter.

Now that she is in a shelter we can bring her to Homeward Trails. Once she is here we can get her more comfortable around people and ready for a family. We can make sure she is in a home where she is a valued family member. You can help her get there. Please help her get to her forever family.

This chocolate brown beauty was found wandering the streets of Southern VA. She appears to be a 5 year old Cur mix but we can’t tell how long she has been out on her own. She is lucky she did not get hit by a car. Being a stray comes with a lot of trials and tribulations. She would have suffered dehydration in the summer heat and not been able to find a decent meal.

Just look at this adorable little thing. This sweet girl is Maggie. Ten weeks old, 12 pounds and the biggest sweetheart you’ll ever meet. Maggie was part of a litter that someone was giving away at a Petsmart. By the time our fosters found out Maggie was one of the only ones left, but she was scooped up and taken home to make sure she didn’t end up in the wrong hands. Dumping puppies like this to the first person who will ask for them opens them up to a whole world of bad possibilities. Whether it be an abusive home, an overcrowded one – or even that they decide once they aren’t a cute puppy anymore that they’re no longer wanted. That’s exactly how these amazing dogs end up on the streets or behind bars at a shelter. We want to make sure Maggie has the best opportunity to to find a home where she will be loved for the entirety of her life – and we won’t give up until we do.

Bubbles is a bouncy little one year old beagle mix pup. This happy boy was found as a stray in rural VA, wandering around in search of food and water. Like many strays, he likely had to be on a constant search for food, and keep a close eye on his surroundings to be sure he didn’t get hit by a car or attacked by another animal. It is very likely that he could have been a hunting dog that an owner discarded or belonged to a family that simply decided they didn’t want him anymore and let him loose. We may never know Bubbles’ prior life, but we do know that his happiness is fading at the shelter he was brought to. Days and weeks go by and not a single adopter has stopped to consider giving him the life he deserves. So each night he lays down on the hard floor, just hoping the next day will be different for him. Homeward Trails wants this sweet boy’s dreams to come true. It is up to you now as HT cannot guarantee anything for Bubbles without your support and donations. Please sponsor this beagle mix today!

Not one, not two, but FIVE little chihuahua mixes were surrendered to a rural VA shelter. These adorable tiny one year old pups are so confused! Why did their only owner give them up? Why do they have to spend their days and nights in cold hard dog runs? Is anyone ever going to show them love again? Unfortunately no one has certain answers for them, but Homeward Trails wants their trauma to be behind them. The world is scary enough when you a little and everyone else is so big, but when you don’t have an owner that loves you and will protect you, you might get a little nervous! We don’t want these sweethearts to be terrified in the shelter. However, taking on 5 dogs all at once isn’t easy. They really need a lot of TLC to get their physical and mental health to a good place. Please donate to these wonderful chi mixes today so they can get out of the cold shelter and into warm arms.

Tiny Darla has had a very rough past few months. This three year old cutie was found wandering around a campsite in West Virginia. She was hungry, tired and filthy. Who knows how long she was lost and how many people turned a blind eye when they saw her scrounging for food. As if being a stray isn’t hard enough, it turns out that Darla wasn’t just thinking about her own survival but the survival of her unborn pups too! That’s right, Darla is pregnant! This sweetheart was lucky enough to be brought to a rural shelter so she at least has steady meals, but she is only weeks away from having her puppies alone on a cold cement floor. We cannot imagine the stress she is under and how much worse it will get for her trying to raise her babies in a loud and uncomfortable environment. Homeward Trails is rallying to find the best foster for her to have her family, but without some serious veterinary care and transportation to the area, we could get to her too late. Please sponsor Darla and her growing family. You will definitely be saving more than just one life!

When Homeward Trails heard that there was a hoarding case that had over 100 dogs that needed to be rescued, they immediately signed up to help in any way that they could. A neglectful hunter failed to get his dogs fixed and now a rural VA shelter is completely overrun with homeless dogs. Many of them aren’t even being kept in their runs or kennels, but rather are staying in crates because there is simply no more room. Sweet Wiley has been one of the lucky ones that survived life at a hoarder’s home. It is likely he has never spent a night on a soft bed or been consistently fed, but Wiley doesn’t let that get him down. He is so excited to be safe. Somehow Wiley knows that even though he isn’t sure what the future holds, anything is better than where he came from. Wiley is just beginning his new life and Homeward Trails is so excited he was able to come to the DC area. Please sponsor Wiley so we can get him much needed vet care.

These 3 brothers were found on the streets of Puerto Rico, desperate to survive. Surviving, in itself, was truly a miracle when there were so many dangers they faced on a daily basis. These boys had to avoid traffic, unfriendly humans and spend their lives in a constant search for food, water and shelter. It was an EXHAUSTING life. Until one day, a kind human found the trio and took them into her home. But their struggles were not yet over.

Summer is quickly approaching which means that cargo flights will start to dwindle with the rising temperatures. Carry-on flights were the pups’ best option but now that they had access to food on a regular basis they were growing FAST.

These adorable puppies are so lucky to be alive. They were born in Puerto Rico under a house, by an almost-feral mama dog. The owners had several dogs on their property that belonged to them, but all got little to no care. The mama of these sweet puppies has had multiple litters over the years because the owners were not able to catch her to get her spayed, after a generous rescue team offered to handle the procedure for them. Covered in fleas and ticks after emerging from under the house (just a structure up on bricks), the puppies were in awful condition. Some of them were even anemic and all of their skin was severely suffering from the bites. Our PR rescue partners knew the owners and the dogs all needed a tremendous amount of support. They convinced the owner to socialize mama so she can be caught and spayed, and that they would take care of the puppies. Surprisingly, the owners worked to socialize the mama dog and she is now spayed! However, the puppies have a long way to go. They are thriving under proper care by the rescue, but these little ones need a lot of TLC and vet care after spending the first month of their life under a house with no socializing with the outside world. We want to bring the whole litter of 9 to Homeward Trails so they can live the rest of their lives IN a house instead of underneath! However, this is a really big commitment to rescue such a large litter and from so far away. Please sponsor these babies so they never have to suffer again. Flights to the DC area can be pricey, but we can’t bear to leave any siblings behind. Every donation will ensure that the pups can start their journey to their new life!

These 5 three month old puppies have no idea how lucky they are. They were rescued in Puerto Rico from a hoarder’s home. At least 5 other dogs lived their lives there tied up outside, and there are still an unknown amount of dogs inside the home. These puppies were the result of an owner who didn’t take the responsible precautions of getting his dogs fixed, but rather let them continue to breed and live in filth. Our PR rescue partner team is trying diligently to get the owner to surrender the other dogs living in misery, but for now, we are thrilled that these 5 pups no longer have to live in squalor. Their mama dog did the best job she could by making sure the other dogs didn’t attack the puppies and that she was able to nurse them even while food was so scarce. Their journey isn’t over yet though. They are not going to be adopted in PR and HT has been asked to bring them to the DC area in hopes that they will have a better chance to thrive. Taking on this litter is a big commitment as we have to secure airfare for all of them as well as veterinary care that they have likely never had. We don’t want to have to split the litter up and need your sponsorship to save the whole family! Please donate to these lucky pups today!

This 1-year-old Jack Russell mix hasn’t had the easiest start. We don’t know much about his past, but it’s clear he hasn’t been given the love of a devoted family and hasn’t gotten the opportunity to trust he’ll be well taken care of. We want to change that. This young guy is in a shelter in southern Virginia. If we can raise the funds, we can bring him here and find him the family he deserves.

Meet Zippy. He’s a big one year old furry baby. He was found as a stray in southern VA. Despite spending most of his life alone on the streets, Zippy is very playful and affectionate with everyone he meets. He hasn’t let his hard life keep him from enjoying every second he can of happiness. Zippy wants to find a perfect family that will play and snuggle with him forever – and we want to make sure he finds it. Everyone deserves a chance with a family, and Zippy here has so much love and kisses to offer. No dog should have to fight as hard as Zippy did to survive. It’s time to let him just be a puppy, and find his forever home.
