Homeward Pet Adoption Center Programs
60% of the dogs and cats we care for come from shelters within the state- most of which euthanize for space, health or specific breeds. 40% are from owner surrendors - families unable to care for their animals. Each incoming dog and cat is given a complete vet exam, spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped prior to adoption. Our goal is to do the best adoption possible, matching families with an animal that will become a lifelong member. Our adoption process is based on 23 years of experience in rescue, sheltering and finding forever-homes for kittens, cats, puppies and dogs, and our goal is to find the best animal for families, other pets, home and living situation.
Public Spay & Neuter
Our low cost spay & neuter clinic is open every Monday and offers reduced cost spays and neuters for the pets of reduced income families. Vaccinations and microchipping can be given at the time of surgery but are not provided as a standalone service.
Every year Homeward Pet cares for approximately 1300 homeless kittens, cats, puppies and dogs. We are not able to help these animals without the support of dedicated and compassionate volunteers. There are over 300 volunteers weekly, donating their time to assist in the direct care of the animals, education, administrative projects and offsite events.
Recent Successes and Current Challenges
We were fortunate to be able to move into a new and bigger location that will allow us to help even more dogs and cats in need. 2012 was our first full year in our new space with record adoptions at 1,414. We continue to provide spay or neuter, vaccines, microchips and complete physicals and any additional medical treatments to ensure each animal is in the best health possible prior to adoption.
Our current need is with help in covering the increased medical expenses incurred with the number of animals we are now able to care for.
