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 themย  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.

What’s black and white and cute all over? “Precious”! She’s an Australian Shepard/Border Collie mix and only about a year old. If her adorable markings aren’t enough to make you fall in love with her, her sweet nature and ever-wagging tail certainly will. She was surrendered to the shelter by her former owner, and has been in the shelter for WAY too long for a dog as adoptable as she is. Please sponsor Precious to get her out of the shelter and to kickstart her adoption journey. We promise to place her with a family who will see how “Precious” she truly is!

This is Emerald! She’s a mixed breed pup who at 3-months-old is still tiny at about 4 lbs. Emerald, along with her sister Diamond, were barely old enough to be away from their mother when they were dropped off at the shelter. Puppies need lots of love and attention, and the reality is that the shelter just doesn’t have the resources to care for these pups during this crucial phase of their development. But we do – and we have an amazing community that we hope will generously help us to raise the sponsorship money for Emerald so that we can get her out of the shelter and adopted ASAP. Is there anything you can do to help?

This little guy is named Midnight. He’s about 2-years-old and he definitely thinks he’s bigger than he actually is. He is great with other dogs and cats, so much so that he’ll try to keep up with the bigger dogs and engage them in play. Sadly that’s also the reason why after briefly being adopted he was given back to the shelter – the adopter owned another big dog and was afraid that he was too big and rough for Midnight. Now Midnight’s life is in danger if we can’t rescue him soon. Please show your support for the little guy by sponsoring Midnight, and we’ll do our best to find him a home with a playmate who is just his size ๐Ÿ™‚

Meet “Dirty” – we’re not sure how he got his name or how he ended up in the shelter, but we are determined to change both those things. Dirty is a male red heeler mix who is 31 lbs and about 1-3 years old. As his picture shows, Dirty is absolutely terrified in the shelter. He’s scared and shy around people and seems to be distrusting. The shelter is the last place a dog like this needs to be. We’ve seen so many dogs like him blossom in confidence once they’re saved from the shelter and placed in a home with patient and loving owners, and we want Dirty to be our next success story. Please show your support for Dirty by sponsoring this next step in his journey!

Why the long face, Duke? We think we have a good idea. Duke is a Great Dane/Shepherd mix who at 60 lbs is one of the biggest dogs at the shelter where he’s currently being housed after his owner surrendered him. He’s a smart boy and knows many commands. His intelligence means that he also seems to have a sense of what being in the shelter means for him and is a bit depressed and sad. While he’s only about 2 years old the unfortunate reality is that many shelters, when pressed for space, euthanize bigger dogs first because they take up the most room. Duke’s time is running out and we are determined to save his life. Can you please donate to Duke’s sponsorship fund so that we can get him out of the shelter and on his way to being adopted?

Sponsoring a dog changes his or her life forever, and no one is more deserving of a new beginning than this sweet Schnauzer mix. He was found on the side of the road in Puerto Rico absolutely covered in cement and looking miserable. Our partners down on the island bolted into action to save him. He was shaved to remove the cement but he still has a few bumps and bruises. When his owner was eventually found, we were told that she left him on the street because she had taken in a husky and wanted that dog instead. She may not have wanted this little guy, but WE DO. Please consider showing your support for this Schnauzer by sponsoring his transport out of Puerto Rico and on to our adoption center, where we will make sure he gets adopted by a family that truly appreciates him.

Say hello to Jackie! She is a young, ~6-9 month old hound mix who was found by a stroke of luck by hikers hiking on an isolated trail in Virginia. She happily followed them and was dropped at the shelter shortly thereafter. We have no idea how long she was out in the woods alone, but we do know that she was very underweight when found. Jackie has persevered through enough already that it would be a shame if she were to be euthanized in the shelter just because of space issues. Sponsor Jackie to save her life and to guarantee that she ends up in a loving and caring home!

This sneaky and smart girl is named Arya. She’s a two-year-old Shephard mix and as far as stray dogs go, she has quite the backstory. Arya sneaked onto the inner patio of the Castillo San Felipe del Morro, a 16th-century citadel and popular tourist destination located in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Seems she had been abandoned for a few weeks and desperately looking for someone to take her in. Local folks let her be and started feeding her scraps as they saw her becoming more and more skinny. When the officials of this UNESCO-protected site got word of the new “resident” they threatened to throw her out on the streets. Thankfully we were able to get a volunteer to pick her up instead. We love Arya and her unique story and want nothing more than to save her. Please consider contributing to Arya’s sponsorship to help fund her transport to the United States and to kickstart her adoption journey.

Meet Manny! He is an adorable 3-year-old lab mix and his story is an odd one. Manny was dropped at the vet to recieve some routine shots, and was never picked back up again. With no where to go, he’s been there ever since, living in a small cage. We all know that the vet is a terrifying place for most dogs and not only do we want to get Manny out of there ASAP, we want to place him in a loving home where he will never again be abandoned. Can you please help sponsor Manny so that we can get him out of the small cage he lives in and on the path to adoption??

It’s always terrifying to hear about dogs living beside busy roads, just waiting and hoping for litter that they can eat. So was the case for these two dogs, who were dumped along a road where a local Puerto Rican woman is known to feed homeless dogs. Fearing they would be hit by cars or poisoned she posted them on Facebook when we saw them and told her to get them first thing the next day if they were still there and alive. Thankfully, she did and then networked to get them a ride to our vet partner there. Now it’s our turn to help raise the money to bring them to the United States, and eventually on to forever homes. Please consider donating to the happily-ever-after of these lucky pups.

The story of this adorable, yet-to-be-named orange puppy is truly amazing. This little guy was found all alone on a trash dump by a local Puerto Rican woman. He was scared, skinny, and all alone. She put out a crate and bedding and he went right in. The poor sweet boy was desperately hungry and thirsty, and it became clear that he would not have survived much longer had he not been found. He’s currently being boarded at our vet partner down in Puerto Rico and he has no idea that soon he will be eligible for adoption here in the United States! Please sponsor this orange pup to help us provide an amazing future for him!

This cute 9-month-old brown lab mix was certainly in the right place at the right time when one of our volunteers found her wandering the beach in Puerto Rico. Gina was eager for attention and love and happily followed our volunteer back to a shelter on the island. She’s received much-needed vet care and has been cleared to fly to the US to begin her adoption journey. The only thing standing in her way? Raising the money to cover transport costs. Can you please help Gina?

Say hello to Frank! He is a small, 20lb mixed breed pup who is about 4 months old. He is still VERY much a puppy, and bounces around inside the shelter walls with excitement and energy. The “Frank” truth of the matter (pun intended) is that if Frank isn’t rescued from the shelter he is facing the possibility of being euthanized. This absolutely breaks our hearts. If it breaks yours too, please help sponsor Frank’s rescue!

The story of how we discovered these puppies one that could have had a VERY different ending had it not been for the perseverance of our amazing volunteers. During Homeward Trails’ recent rescue trip to Puerto Rico, we heard a rumor that there might a dog living in a pile of rubble. When we went to check it out, what we found instead were ELEVEN puppies trapped in a dirty pile of rubble and construction material that resulted when a house collapsed. We had to move large pieces of corrugated metal sliding in order to get them all out. They’re out of immediate danger, but they’re not out of the woods yet – and we’re asking for your help. Can you please help us raise the money to get them proper vet care AND to transport them to the United States to begin their adoption journeys? This is one rescue story that we can’t wait to end as a happily ever after tale.
