Please contact Carla ( for more information about this pet.Meet Rusty! Rusty is one of Roxie's puppies. The puppies all have a similar temperament of playing hard and enjoying some R & R and snuggles. All the puppies have stunning green eyes. Rusty enjoys snuggles a bit more than his litter mates and has the best wrinkles on his head. Roxie and her puppies joined our rescue when the puppies were two weeks old. We arranged for them to be transported from Virginia to their foster home in Enola, Pennsylvania. Roxie seems to be a Boxer/Shepard mix. We're not sure what the daddy is. The puppies have been wormed every week since they turned three weeks old, except for the week of their First Distemper Combo shot. They received their first Distemper Combo shot at 6 weeks of age, and visited our vet for a health exam and microchipping at 7 weeks of age. They are now ready to find their forever homes. The puppies are in a foster home in Enola, Pennsylvania. We do adopt out of state. However, you must appear in person to complete the adoption, so you should MapQuest Enola to make sure you want to drive that far. You can complete your adoption application at http://homewardbound2u.resc Carla will be processing the adoption applications, and approved applicants will be handed off to their foster parents, Christy and Rob, who will handle the adoption. No one gets to meet the puppies until they have an approved adoption application.

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.
