Additional adoption info

I try to be as open-minded as possible when screening adopters, but it is very important that I match each dog to the most suitable home. I will not adopt a dog to a home where they will be crated all day.

About Homebound Houndz

My name is Emma and I run homebound houndz (used to be called Emma's Dog Rescue). This started as something small, after I had rescued my two dogs. I felt guilty knowing there are so many other dogs out there needing homes. Animals have always been my passion. My rescue grew and grew, and I have now placed hundreds of dogs in wonderful homes. Please feel free to go to the instagram page and go to tagged photos, where you will see lots of pictures of the dogs in their new homes.

Support adoption and rescue. Why go to a dog breeder, cat breeder or pet store to buy a dog or buy a cat when you can adopt?

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life.

What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?

When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.

So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
