If you would like to get pre-approved to adopt thru Homeward Bound Animal Rescue, but aren't quite ready to take a dog home.  Please select Pre-Approval on our adoption app when it asks what pet you are most interested in adopting.  Getting pre-approved is a great way to get started.  Just because you don't see a dog that you like on our website doesn't mean he/she isn't in one of our foster homes waiting to get listed.  We rescue pregnant dogs or dogs who have recently delivered from kill shelters or from owner surrenders.  Because the puppies are so young, we do not list them.  We only list our puppies until they are 7 days past their first set of shots which puts them at about 7 weeks of age.  When we list our puppies, they are a week away from adoption age - 8 weeks.  We will begin to release the puppies to approved adopters once they are 8 weeks old and have a health certificate from our local vet.  We do not hold puppies for anyone, so please do not ask the foster parent to do that for you.  When we hold a puppy for you, you have just tied up that foster home, and we cannot save that next pregnant dog from being euthanized in a kill shelter.  It may sound melodramatic, but it's the truth.

PS:  The picture for Pre-Approval is my personal dog, and he is not up for adoption.  See what gorgeous creatures can be found in rescue.

About Homeward Bound Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a no kill animal rescue that was founded due to our love for animals that are less fortunate. We actively promote spay/neuter for all pets. All of the pets that come to us were in danger of being euthanized at the shelters they were housed in. Some of our pets have come from abuse situations, some are strays, and some are given up because their former owners just decided that they were not wanted anymore. The statistics are alarming -- 70,000 puppies and kittens are born every day -- over 25 million animals a year. Even more alarming, 15 - 17 million of these animals are euthanized in animal shelters each year. Why? Because irresponsible pet owners feel that it's no big deal if Fluffy or Fido has just one litter of kittens or puppies. After all, they will just take the offspring to the local shelter, and be done with it. Some people are under the misconception that because the dog or puppy that they bring to a shelter is a purebred, it will find a home easily. Nothing is further from the truth. All shelters and Humane Societies are overwhelmed because there is simply not enough space or adoptive homes. The problem with this logic is that there are already too many animals at the animal shelter. In addition to there being too many animals, there is often not enough help at the shelter to care for these animals. Shelter workers are often forced to "put down" puppies and kittens that are perfectly healthy. This is a tragic waste of life.

Our Adoption Process...

You may fill out an online application for any of our pets through our website. After we have had a chance to review the application we will be in touch with you. We do our best to match families up with their new best friend. All of our pets are in foster care and the foster parent knows what makes them tick and knows their personalities best. While your home may be a great home for a pet, it might not be the right home for the pet which you are applying. We may suggest a different pet, or if you are willing, we can keep your name on file and notify you when one arrives that has the qualities and personality traits that you are looking for. Do not be discouraged if the pet that you apply for is adopted by another family. There is no shortage of homeless pets and the perfect one will come along sooner or later. Many of the popular pets receive several applications and we do our best to insure that they are placed into a home in which they will be able to live out their days. We thank you again for you interest in saving one of the less fortunate. Good luck and you are now on your way to finding your new best friend. Adoption fees are posted on the pets pages. Any puppy that is not old enough to be altered prior to adoption requies a refundable spay/neuter deposit.
