News & Announcements

Twas the 16th  (or 17th) of December and all through the house,

Adoption Fees were waived for 10 dogs but no mouse,

Their leashes were hung by the exit with care,

In the hopes their new adopters soon would be there,

The dogs were all nestled all snug in their beds,

While visions of new homes danced in their heads,

You can finish this carol with a happy ending for our our ten remaining 12 Dogs of Christmas who will be available this weekend at the Homeward Trails Adoption Center between the hours of 10 am and 4 pm on Saturday and Sunday.  We are located at 11116 Fairfax Station Road in Fairfax Station, VA.  The adoption fees for our featured 12 Dogs of Christmas are waived thanks to our Subaru Share the Love partners Browns Manassas Suabaru and the ASPCA. Let’s get these pups home for the holidays!

Join us on Saturday, December 16 for a very special cat adoption event and fundraiser at Lilly Pulitzer Arlington. We will have adoptable cats and kittens from noon until 2 PM and from noon 4 PM 10% of the store sales will be donated to Homeward Trails. It a great time to stock up on holiday gifts for all the Lilly lovers in your life and to adopt a new furry feline friend in time for the holidays.

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 with any questions.

Thank you so much!

We treasure our volunteers and want to the thank you for your hard work!  Bring your family for some yummy pancakes and other breakfast goodies and a fun morning of meeting your fellow volunteers and celebrating all the HT has accomplished because of YOU!

Breakfast served beginning at 9 AM, program begins promptly at 10 AM

We can’t wait to see you there!
