Adopt Through Homeward Bound Golden Retriever Rescue
“Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.” – Roger Caras
Typically, dogs arrive weekly from across California and Nevada. Some dogs are surrendered to us, some are from families that have passed away or can no longer keep them, and still others come from shelters through no fault of their own.
Due to the Coronavirus, shelters are operating at a fraction of their capacity. For now, most dogs are coming to us as surrenders or strays. We have been overwhelmed with interest in adopting during this time. As a result, we are temporarily pausing our adoption applications to work through the backlog of waiting families with the exception of special dogs who need a little extra help getting home.
Our commitment to you remains the same: to evaluate each dog, ensure that it has a medical examination, test for heartworm, vaccinate, spay or neuter, and provide whatever medical care is needed.
Every pet adopted from Homeward Bound also comes with our lifetime promise. If, for any reason, you can no longer care for your dog, he or she is always welcome to come back to the sanctuary.
