About Homeward Bound Golden Retriever Rescue & Sanctuary, Inc.

Homeward Bound was founded in the year 2000, based on a dream and a promise made to our founders’ beloved Golden, Chelsea. Since then, we have rescued, healed, placed, and provided sanctuary to more than 10,200 dogs.

From eight acres of countryside, we have carved out a peaceful sanctuary where the dogs can run, play, train, and be loved on their journey to their forever homes. For those whose health issues have rendered them unlikely to be adopted, they are welcome to live out their lives with us in security and dignity.

None of this would be possible without you – the hundreds of volunteers, supporters, adopters, fosters and partners who truly are the heart of Homeward Bound.

We invite you to learn more about what we do, how we do it, and what you contribute to in our 2021 Annual Report.

“The bond with a true dog is as lasting as the ties of this earth will ever be.”
~ Konrad Lorenz
