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 www.texasgreatdane.org.

 




 
- IMPORTANT INFORMATION -
 
SASPCA Homeward Bound Dog Rescue and San Antonio Great Dane Rescue are 501(c)(3) foster-based rescue groups based in San Antonio, Texas. 
 
Our group focuses on assisting open admission shelters in South Texas where over 32,000 dogs and cats are euthanized each year.

Our puppies and dogs are completely vetted and live in foster homes. They are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, dewormed, and tested for heartworm disease.

All adoptions include one month of flea and heartworm preventative, leash and collar, and a 30-day trial of 24PetWatch Pet Insurance. 

Adopters will also receive a Petco Pet Parent Savings Books that contain:

• $100s in savings plus a coupon for a free 6 lb. bag of WholeHearted dog food.

• Thoughtful care tips.

• Online resources and support.
 
Our adoption events are held each Saturday at Petco located in the Northwoods Shopping Center at 18138 San Pedro Ave, San Antonio, TX 78232.  Event hours are typically 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  
 
We also host additional adoption events throughout the year.  Please visit our Facebook pages for the most current event schedules.

If your adoption application is approved, we hold your chosen pet for one hour past the event start time to allow for travel time from the Austin area.
 
We do try to schedule bi-monthly meet-and-greets in Austin as interest is generated.
 
We are an all-volunteer organization and do not currently have the resources to process out-of-state adoptions.
 
Our puppies, purebred dogs, and small breed dogs do get adopted quickly so we encourage interested parties to apply online.

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.
