Autumn has arrived! We hope you are enjoying the change of seasons and the beautiful colors that come along with it.
Speaking of seasons, we are excited to announce our Season of Giving campaign which will allow us to raise crucial funds to support the work we do to save animals in Yamhill County. For more details, please see the article below.
To stay informed of all things HBPets, please “like” our Facebook page.
Season of Giving
As each animal arrives scared and alone at the Homeward Bound Pets Animal Shelter, they hear unfamiliar sounds and meet many strangers. Every dog and cat receives individualized time with our staff and volunteers to ensure they receive the proper care.
Over the years, we have helped over 15,000 animals who were either abandoned, surrendered, or found as a stray. To get an animal ready for adoption, it costs HBPets and average of $275 if no surgeries are required, with the exception of spay/neuter procedures.
Your generous donations allow us to focus on rescue and rehabilitation efforts, rather than spending valuable time fundraising. Donations are the single largest funding for Homeward Bound Pets, Oregon’s first no-kill shelter.
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 make a donation in person, you may visit one of the following locations in McMinnville: Animal Shelter 10601 SE Loop Road, Thrift Shop 1120 NE Lafayette Avenue (in the J&W Carstar parking lot), and our Spay/Neuter Clinic 723 NE Evans Street.
With the support from our community, Homeward Bound Pets is able to care for those without a voice. Animal abuse and neglect take place every day. Be a hero and join us in our fight by making a donation today.
Halloween will be here soon and we are asking for donations of large bags of candy to hand out at the Trick-or-Treating event on Third Street on Halloween night from 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
Please join us and other local organizations for festivities, spooky surprises, and of course, candy!
Candy donations can be dropped of at the following locations in McMinnville: Animal Shelter 10601 SE Loop Road, Thrift Shop 1120 NE Lafayette Avenue (in the J&W Carstar parking lot), and our Spay/Neuter Clinic 723 NE Evans Street.
To have your picture taken (your camera) with famous celebrities, please visit our booth between 5:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. – donations for the photo booth are appreciated!
THANK YOU, JAKE!
A HUGE HBPets thank you to Jake Sizer for his hard work and coordination of the beautification project he recently complete at our shelter! It adds so much curb appeal to the parking lot and we couldn’t be more grateful.
Congratulations on being one step closer to becoming an Eagle Scout!
See’s Candy Fundraiser
Our “sweet” Fall fundraiser is here. If you would like to help the fur kids and enjoy See’s candy, please stop by the thrift shop or shelter.
The candy arrives the week after Thanksgiving all decked out in Christmas wrapping. Consider ordering for friends or as corporate gifts.

We asked and you delivered!
Recently, we asked for donations of supplies for our animal shelter and we were fortunate enough to receive the requested items from generous donors our community. Thank you!
Do you know local
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.
My adoption fee has been sponsored by a generous donor!
Serenity is our shelter’s longest resident. She is currently awaiting her fur-ever home at PetSmart in Tigard. Do you have room in your heart and home for her?
Serenity would do best in a home where she is the only pet, although she does well with other calm cats. She would love to have access to being both an inside and outside kitty.
Please visit PetSmart in Tigard today to meet Serenity!
