Season of Giving
First, let us say thank you. Your generous support of Homeward Bound Pets Humane Society allows us to continue saving many animals.
In 2019, we have taken in more dogs and cats than ever before due to the increased need in our community and beyond. We anticipate that we will help 900 animals this year! We answered the call for help from shelters in California during the wildfires and we helped in an urgent situation for the Lincoln County Animal Shelter. At times we are distressed and sad, but we work through these moments as a team.
With the support from our community, Homeward Bound Pets is able to care for those without a voice. We are filled with gratitude that all of you make our work possible.
From the HBPets family to yours, we wish you a blessed holiday season and a Happy New Year!
If you would like to make a donation to our Season of Giving campaign, you may do so on our website here, or by mailing a check to Homeward Bound Pets at PO Box 8 McMinnville, OR 97128.
To contribute in person, please visit one of these McMinnville locations: our Thrift Shop (1120 NE Lafayette Avenue) and the Spay/Neuter Clinic (723 NE Evans Street).
The holidays are a wonderful time to spend time with family and friends, but they can also be a challenging time when you have pets. Anxious or reactive dogs are especially prone to stress during the holidays.
If your dog is nervous around strangers in your home, set up a safe space for her to go to when she’s feeling overwhelmed.
Make sure your Christmas tree is securely anchored to the ground, and minimize your dog’s temptation to jump on the tree by avoiding edible ornaments like popcorn strings.
If you’re going to be away from home more than usual, provide your dog with interactive toys or treats to keep him busy.
We are excited to be partnering with Salem Harley-Davidson for the second year in a row for our Fourth Annual Dawgs & Hogs Poker Run! This FUNdraising event will be held on July 11, 2020 and our riders will be making four stops at local breweries before their final stop at Salem Harley-Davidson where our after party will be held.
In order to provide care and rehabilitation to even more stray and homeless animals next year, we have increased our fundraising goal for the 2020 event. To reach that goal, we need to incorporate higher value items and experiences into our silent auction.
If you are interested in helping or if you are a business owner who would like to donate items or experiences to our raffles and auctions at this event, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Homeward Bound Pets is always looking for foster families for our kittens and puppies. We need at least 6 foster families for puppies before we can begin our puppy foster program. Do you have room in your heart and home? We provide everything you need to foster. All you need to offer is your home and love.
Foster families must reside within McMinnville, or no more than 15 minutes from our shelter, which is located at 10601 SE Loop Road (for emergency purposes). We hold monthly foster orientations.
If you cannot foster but would like to help with our foster program, please consider making a donation to help purchase the supplies needed to help our fosters care for the animals. Please call or text the HBPets foster coordinator at 971-285-4631 if you would like more information.
PLEASE NOTE: Our shelter is closed for minor renovations. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to improve our space.
We will be closed until after the new year and will be communicating timeline updates.
