It is with deepest sorrow that we announce the passing of our founder Julie Julson on March 8, 2017. Julie proved that one person with a vision can change the world. Homeward Bound Pets will continue to keep her legacy alive by carrying out the mission of improving the lives of cats and dogs through adoption and community partnerships. Some say there is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth called the Rainbow Bridge. When a beloved pet dies, they go to this place. Julie was a special person who touched the lives of so many cats and dogs.. We are sure that they were all there waiting for her, crossing into Heaven together, never again to be separated. All our love goes with you, sweet Julie.
Improving the Lives of Cats and Dogs Through Adoption and Community Partnerships.
Homeward Bound Pets is Oregon’s FIRST no-kill shelter and has been helping cats and dogs in the McMinnville and Yamhill County area for over 40 years.
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.
Homeward Bound Pets is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization which operates solely from donations, fundraising activities and adoption fees. Donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

10601 SE Loop Road in McMinnville, OR 97128
