One of our two catteries is in such dire need of major repairs we had to close it and move all cats into the other cattery. With so many in one house, temperaments and attitudes are a challenge. Because of this, our intake process for cats is at a standstill. We would sincerely appreciate your support in raising $17,000 to make the cattery livable and functional. Our goal is to conclude this campaign by February 28, 2016, the date repairs are expected to be completed.
Our shelter is run by our Manager Heather Broden, with very limited staff, and dozens of volunteers. Our Board of Directors is led by Executive Director Dawn Witt. We provide education outreach for schools, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and churches. We hold a Blessing of the Animals each year and provide pet visits for seniors. We hold adoption events in stores. Over the past three years, we have increased our cat adoptions by 21%, dog adoptions by 64%.
In addition, Homeward Bound Pets operates a low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic and an Angel Fund program, which assists low-income people in our community with emergency veterinary care. It seems we always have a better place to help needy animals than building repairs. But now we are in trouble!
Homeward Bound Pets
Provides shelter and care, with compassion, dignity and love, to the homeless cats and dogs of our community. We also provide adoption services, spay/neuter clinics and community education. We have been helping animals in our community since 1975.
Every animal that comes to our shelter stays with us until they are adopted. We believe that each animal has unique qualities that someone is looking for in a companion and that time increases the chances of them finding each other.
