We are very excited to announce the launch of a new donation-based promotion at The Black Dog store at National Harbor!

New to this year’s product line is the “Best Friend” tee.  This slub cotton unisex long sleeve tee features a silhouette of the Black Dog on the back filled with all the words that describe why we love dogs. The shirt also features a small front print, as well as a dated logo on the cuff.

The best part is that Homeward Trails will receive a donation of 100% of the net proceeds from the sales of the tee. We are thrilled to be the charity of choice of The Black Dog’s National Harbor store!

Pick yours up today!

Our busy outdoor event season is about to start and we desperately need new tents to provide shade at our off-site events and at the Adoption Center. We are down to one functional tent and we have multiple outdoor events every Saturday and Sunday. Can you help us provide critical shade for the dogs, volunteers and adopters by donating a tent? We want everyone to be safe and cool while we are busy finding their forever homes.

We have some tents on our Amazon wishlist, or if you have an unused tent a home that you would like to donate we would be happy to take it off your hands. Contact rebeccag@homewardtrails.org with any questions.

Thank you so much!
