Sponsor These Shelter Animals & Bring Them to Safety

The animals featured here are some of the hundreds Homeward Trails is asked to rescue each week. Space and money are the greatest barriers to us saying yes to each request. As a supporter of HT, you can help a great deal by making a donation to offset the costs to rescue one of these animals. On average, it costs approximately $150 to rescue each dog and $100 to rescue each cat. This includes basic vet care provided by the shelters, fuel for transport, staff time, additional vaccines and housing once they arrive at HT.

We are now offering our wonderful family of HT supporters the opportunity to donate to a specific animal and help us bring him/her to safety before time runs out. Every donation will save the life of a specific animal…and any donations over the amount needed will be applied to others in need.

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.

Ally was found in a crate on the side of a road with a note on it that said “Take or we will kill” . How anyone can treat an innocent baby like this is unfathomable. Unfortunately Ally’s misfortune does not stop there. She is currently at a crowded rural shelter and needs out immediately as space becomes an issue. Please help us turn Ally’s life around. The transport van leaves Saturday and we want nothing more than to see her on it!

Poor Brownie is really unsure at the shelter- you can see by her eyes that she doesn’t know what is going on. We really want to help brighten up her day, but need assistance with vetting and transport! Please help us help Brownie! The van leaves Saturday and we would love to see her on it!

My name is Marcus and people say I’m a total love bug. I enjoy crawling into laps and giving little kisses. Right now I’m stuck in a cage in a big cement building that is filled with other scared dogs. I hear there is a freedom van leaving Saturday. That sure does sound nice. Please help me get out of here.

Sweet Sirena was confiscated after a drug bust in rural SW VA with multiple other dogs. Her sister had puppies and went to rescue, but Sirena has not been as lucky. She is just the sweetest girl- loves belly rubs, playing with other dogs and is completely housetrained. She has been at the shelter for four months and is out of time. Please help us get her to safety!!

Hope and her son Forest have come so very far. When they were found months ago they were starving, disease-ridden, and parasite-infested. Worse yet, Hope had a new litter of pups tucked under a car in that abandoned lot. She was so sad, and Forest was terrified. Flash forward to today: those youngest pups are all healthy and adopted, and between them Hope and Forest have conquered  fleas, ticks, mange, ehrlichiosis, and anaplasmosis. They’ve gained weight,  they’re happily playing together, and Forest has learned to trust. The last medical hurdle is to complete their heartworm treatment. Once that’s done, they can follow the path of the earlier pups, and fly from our rescue partners in Puerto Rico here to Virginia where they’ll finally find homes. When we come across dogs in need, we help them. We don’t ask first if they have medical issues. The result is that some rescues put us in the hole, financially, which makes it harder to say yes the next time. That’s why we count on the Homeward Trails team. Can you pitch in to cover the costs of helping Hope and Forest? Thank you.
