MuttNation is a non profit organization that places a high value on well run shelters across the US. The MuttNation Foundation goes to all 50 states and picks one shelter each year, per state to get the grant and award.
Have you visited our Thrift Shop Lately?
Our Thrift Shop is brimming with great finds and great deals. This month a massive cookbook collection arrived and a huge jewelry estate came in! You will even find a large assortment of crosses for Easter!
The Shelter Needs Help!
Our Shelter cats are getting low on their favorite wet food. We proudly admit that they are a bit spoiled and only like the canned pate wet food. What can we say; they are very loved!
Also our dogs are in need of wet food as well.
Please help us out and either drop some off at the shelter or click the donate now button today!
Spay/Neuter Clinic News
Being overweight, older, and intact is dangerous to your pets health. It also makes complications during and after surgery more likely. This month we saw a senior overweight girl for a spay that developed several complications and had to spend the night at Salem ER. Watch your pet’s weight and spay/neuter while they are young and healthy!
The volunteers at the Spay/Neuter Clinic are simply amazing. Besides donating their time to help the pets, they brought in organization caddies, extra laptops from home, and put up shelves in the clinic! We can’t thank are volunteers enough for all they do!
We have the best community!
Homeward Bound Pets was voted first place for the 2019 Customer Ballot Program. Thank you to all who voted for us to receive the $2,792. First Federal has distributed funds to 88 non profit organizations in Yamhill County this year!
Check Your Carriers!
This month a client’s cat carrier fell apart in the parking lot because the plastic was old and could not support the weight of the cats. The two cats ran off down and across the street and were retrieved by a helpful client from the waiting room and our very skillful certified vet tech retrieved the second cat 3 blocks from the clinic. When spring cleaning your house. It’s a good time to check your cat carriers to ensure they have all their screws and snaps, have not cracks, and are ready for use in case of an emergency. Remember if there is a disaster in our area emergency centers will require cats be in carriers.
