Bertie is a 4 yr old Basset that came to us from the Bell County shelter.  She was super skinny and full of fleas when we got her, we just knew she was going to be heartworm positive, too.  Imagine our surprise when this poor mistreated girl was heartworm NEGATIVE!!  Despite what she has been thru she has stayed an incredibly happy dog!  She loves belly rubs and a big bowl of dog food!

Bertie is fully vaccinated, spayed and had a dental and she is heartworm negative.  If you would like to add this loveable pup to your family her adoption fee is $200 and an online application can be completed at


 Please note we are a group of private foster homes and NOT a public shelter, we have weekly adoption events at the Unleashed petstore at 18138 San Pedro (1604 & 281) in San Antonio, on Saturdays from 11-3 . With an approved application on file we are happy to hold your chosen pet for 2 hours past the start of our event to give you time to get here. We routinely do adoptions throughout the Austin and San Antonio areas and the rest of Texas. We try to schedule bi-monthly meet ups in Austin, as interest is generated.
Please go to to read our policies and procedures and to fill out the adoption application.

*** MANY THANKS for considering rescue! ***

About Homeward Bound Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a group of private foster homes dedicating to saving and finding forever homes for as many dogs as we can. We primarily pull from the local kill shelters, and we also rescue abandoned dogs. We fully vet and assess the temperaments of our fosters and then try to find them the best forever homes possible. We do it because we love them and because we hope our efforts encourage others to do the same. We also participate in local rescue advocacy groups and work in public education efforts to promote spay / neuter and responsible pet ownership.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We aren't a shelter so don't have a public viewing area, but we participate in area community adoption events and schedule meetings with potential adopters by appt. once we have an approved application

Our Adoption Process...

Our policies, procedures, and fees are listed on our website and in our applications and contracts. We require an approved application prior to setting up a meeting (usually a home visit), a contract if the meeting goes well, and a trial adoption period before finalizing the adoption.
