News & Announcements

Effective March 18, 2020 – all animals available for adoption through Homeward Trails can be met by appointment only. Our Adoption Center public hours are suspended until further notice. Cats dwelling at Crumbs & Whiskers can be met by approved adopters only by appointment. Please submit an online application and an adoption coordinator will reply with next steps. We thank you for your patience and we hope to keep saving lives during this difficult time.

We encourage anyone not looking to adopt to contact us about fostering an animal (info@homewardtrails.org) or taking a dog on a Tails Out adventure (tailsout@homewardtrails.org).

We are also welcoming creative people of all ages to join our marketing team to assist us with promoting our animals for adoption so that we can continue saving lives. Only when animals are adopted can we save more from the shelters. Please email us (info@homewardtrails.org) if you’d like more information.

Credit card donations are much appreciated during this time and can be made here.

Thank you!

Our biggest year end fundraising day is TODAY, December 3 and we need your help!  Giving Tuesday allows us to finish the year saying YES and go into 2020 saving lives..

We’ve had an incredibly busy year. To date, more than 2,500 animals have been rescued. Almost 40% of these have a special need that makes them candidates for euthanasia. But with your support, we are able to give them the medical care they need to get well and find that loving home they deserve. 

Giving Tuesday is the most popular online fundraising day of the year because it urges people to think of gifts to charitable organizations after the official start of the holiday shopping season. Together hundreds of donations large and small add up to thousands of dollars for our animals!

Our goal is to raise $30,000 in 27 hours. 

Will you help us reach our goal and make 2020 our biggest year for rescuing animals? With your help, we can make it happen! Give and share to help us save lives!
