Pets Make Life Better
With the recent concerns about the coronavirus - COVID - 19 and the efforts to keeping it contained, here at Homeward Bound we are doing what we can to keep our staff and working volunteers healthy. To that effort we are closing the shelter to the public. Please do not visit the shelter until further notice.
The animals are being well cared for by our staff everyday.
At this time please do not plan to visit, socialize, walk dogs or drop off donations. You can see our available pets on our Facebook and website.
We will update our facebook and website for a reopening date and changes.
