Puppy and Kitten Fosters Needed
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.
