Homeward Trails Animal Rescue adopts pets to homes in Washington, DC, Virginia and Maryland. Many of the dogs and puppies available for adoption are being cared for in foster homes in the DC area but many are still in rural animal shelters and can only be brought to the DC area once we have approved adoptive or foster homes for them. If you’re interested in adopting one of these animals, please review our and contact the volunteer whose email is listed on his or her page. Or attend a where you can meet a number of dogs at once and talk to Homeward Trails volunteers about adoption.

Please bring a collar and leash for dogs and a carrier for cats andsmall animals. It's also a good idea to buy an engraved tag for cats anddogs with your name and number. You will need other pet supplies fromthe store of your choice,such as food and bedding. How much you spend isyour choice. For small animals, the initial cost can be high forspecial cages, lighting and food. Initial costs for cats and dogs can beas low as a leash or litter pan. All pets need to have a visit with thevet, where costs are variable.

Adopted dogs make wonderful pets! So many people are told they can only get a dog with a good temperament if they purchase a pure bred from a breeder. This is not true. Dogs at Saving Grace are selected from local shelters where lack of kennel space keeps animals from being placed up for adoption. Before a dog comes into the Saving Grace program, it is evaluated for temperament and suitability as a family pet.As the original and largest no-kill animal care and adoption center in North Texas, Operation Kindness is the place Where Happiness Begins. In 41 years we have saved nearly 90,000 cats and dogs. We care for approximately 300 cats and dogs on a day-to-day basis, with another 150 in foster homes. In the past 12 months over 4,566 homeless cats and dogs received medical care, clean shelter, nutritious food and playtime in a natural setting until they were adopted into new forever homes.Did you know that over 1,000 people per hour run a search right here looking to adopt a pet? Pet adoption is quickly becoming the preferred way to find a new dog, puppy, cat or kitten. Best of all, there are so many benefits when you adopt a dog or adopt a cat over buying. For instance, pet adoption will almost always be more affordable than buying a puppy for sale from a breeder or finding a kitten for sale from a litter. There are more benefits as well. Since pets in rescues and shelters usually come from a home where the owners ran out of money, got divorced, or had to move, it's common to find that the dogs and cats on our website are already housetrained, good with kids, or do well with other pets. People are finding out that buying a puppy for sale from a breeder isn't all it's cracked up to be and the stress of training a puppy is too much these days. Best of all, rescues care for their animals, and the dogs and cats don't leave the organization without having their shots and being taken to the vet. That means less stress, and more savings! So what are you waiting for? Go find that perfect pet!CAP has many wonderful dogs and puppies available for adoption. Also, new animals arrive every day at the shelter, so our site features only a portion of our residents. For a real canine caper, stop by the shelter, located at 17555 Katy Freeway in Houston, Texas.
