Making a Difference
Emma Of Dayton Middle School decided that for her school project she would draw attention to the pet over population problem, and raise funds for HomewardBound Pets. She volunteers at the shelter and learned about the various parts of the organization, then held a face-painting and arts-n-crafts booth to help raise funds for our organization.
Dunniway Leadership Class has taken HBPets as their passion project this school year and just send us a check for $741.03 in donations they have raised for us!
We would like to give a big Thank You to these wonderful, caring, young students who are working so hard to benefit their community!

Ruff Life Rescue out of Grand Ronde surprised us this month by showing up with our clinic name and number advertised on the back of their van! We are so touched. Thank you, Angie and Ruff Life Rescue!
The Spay/Neuter clinic received the most amazing surprise this month. A generous patron waited for us to open one morning eager to make a donation to the clinic. She gave us a $1,200 check so that we could purchase a special extra kennel that will make it easier on volunteers and pets when we have big dogs in for surgery. Now we can schedule more dogs each day! Thank you to all the generous people that shower love on the clinic in the form of money, gifts and time.
Monthly Pet Tip…
Marcy came to HomewardBound Pets after retiring from a career as a chiropractor and acupuncturist in California and Mexico. She started volunteering in the thrift shop and quickly began working on fundraisers for HomewardBound Pets. Marcy and Georganne worked together to start Yamhill County’s first low-cost cat spay/neuter program and with the help of many volunteers transported cats to various vet clinics to be fixed.
While serving on the HBPets board, Marcy started up a new area of HBPets, the Angel Fund, in 2012, proving another way to help pets in need.
All this experience with HomewardBound Pets provided Marcy the skills she needed to become staff to 4 cats at home. In her leisure time, her cats do allow her to participate in clog dancing with the Walnut City Cloggers.
“A vibrant childhood memory: I slept with
long lineups of stuffed animals…I curled up as small as I could in one corner of the bed to give them the space to play and be happy. That is still my dream and prayer, that all God’s creatures are well and happy.” – Marcy
