found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
A little information about Kirby...
Hi! My name is Kirby and foster mom (FM) says I'm probably a small scruffy yorkie mix. Whatever I am, she says I'm super cute with a great personality to match. While I will probably be a little shy when first meeting you, I love to be held and cuddled which is easy to do since I'm only 5.6lbs (as of September 4) and about 1yo. Even though I'm so small, I am learning that the thing called a leash around my neck is not too bad of a thing 'cause I get to go for walks . . . but let me run around without it on in a fenced area and I have a big time playing with my foster brothers and sisters. Can you believe that I found myself in a scary place called a shelter? FM says she can't believe it and wonders what my story is! She says to tell you I've done good at night in my crate with no accidents and take care of my business either when she lets me outside in a fence area or on a pee pad she has down for me in case I need it. I like to eat but prefer lots of canned food mixed in with my kibble. I also like the little dog bed FM has for me. If you would like to meet me, please go to http://www.homewardboundct.org/want-to-adopt-a-dog/ and fill out an application . . . I'll be waiting!
Kirby will be coming to our next event at:
Guilford Fair Grounds
Guilford, CT 06437
October 8th & 9th from 10 am - 4pm
We are open to the public from 10 am to 4 pm. All final decisions are made by the rescues not Homeward Bound volunteers. If you are interested in this dog or any of our dogs please go to www.homewardboundct.org (copy and paste in browser window) and see all of the dogs coming and also fill out an application). Please note that most of these dogs are not in Connecticut and will be arriving the day prior so it is most likely not possible for you to meet them prior to the event.
If you are a first time dog owner we may require a home visit prior to adoption.
If you rent or live in a condo we will require proof that you are able to have a dog. This could be a copy of the lease or condo agreement.
All the residents in the household must come to the event along with any dog in your home for a meet and greet with our trainers.
Per the request of the rescues we may limit adoptions to only Connecticut homes due to the distance and support we give them. This again is strictly the rescues decision and hope you will honor that.
We also require a follow up visit with all families within a couple of months after the adoption.
Since we know there are many questions, please realize we will answer questions of those who have filled out an application first.
Adoption Fee is no more than $385. All dogs will be spayed/neutered, vaccinated to age and also micrcochipped.
If you have additional questions about our dogs feel free to contact us. Please understand that we are all volunteers and will try to get back to you as soon as possible. If it is close to our event we are very busy with pre-screening our applicants so please understand if we can't answer all your questions in a timely manner. Our goal is to make sure these dogs go to the best home possible.
