Bringing Lulu home was the most natural thing imaginable. She didn't fuss or howl during the 20 minute car ride. Once inside she acted like this was just what she expected. While we got off to a smooth and great start, the best part has been getting to know each other as our relationship deepens. She's now been running and playing about the house for nearly two weeks. With all the clever toys I purchased and entice her to play with, she can spend hours batting at her shadow on the hardwood floor. Who knew?
Thanks to Homeward Pets for making this adoption such an enjoyable and successful process.

It’s been a little over two days that we've had the privilege of being Corrin's parents. Since Corrin wasn't her previous given name we decided to change it to Pippa. We are delighted to have this precious animal in our lives.
The night we brought her home, Pippa did remarkably well. Her appetite was light; not unusual due to the circumstance and new surroundings. When it was time for bed we put her in another room from us with the door closed. Pippa quickly went to sleep, but 2 hours later woke up scared. We followed your advise and put a leash with the other end tied to the bed post. It worked like a charm! Great advise.
The next morning, she ate fairly well and played outside. We've discovered Pippa has a real liking for squirrels. We kept Pippa very busy since leaving the shelter. She been to the doggy spa for a bath and nail trimming, she been to store and picked out two comfy beds. Pippa went to the vet this morning and everything checkout OK, the vet believes she might be full lab not mix.
We have also schedule her for doggy obedience training starting the first of the year.
Thank you for your wonderful work!
Walter, Tana, Pippa, and Lucy Boy

Ava, as you can see from the pics and within just 1 day, has taken over my favorite very comfy man-cave chair. She also is discovering the bird feeder and enjoying football on the TV. I hope I can some day pull the remote control from her grasp. She is eating/sleeping very well along with having a tons of energy running up and down the stairs. Thanks again for introducing me to Ava and for all you guys do.
Enjoy the holiday season.

When Gayle & I adopted Oscar in July, he was just over 3 months old, and weighed 4 lbs. Today our little orange guy is 8 months old and a not so little 11 lbs. He has been such a FANTASTIC new member of our family. What a sweet cat! And he has fit in perfectly with our other cat, Boo. They get lots of exercise together chasing and wrestling.
We just wanted to check in with you and let you know Oscar is doing great, and we thank you again for everything Homeward Pet does for rescue animals. We spread the word about your organization constantly. Hope your new facility is working grand, and sometime in 2012 we can stop by to see it.
Happy holidays to you all at Homeward Pet!
Jim & Gayle
Hello Laurel, We are writing to give you an update on our lovely little kitty Mia (Farina). She has been the sweetest girl since we got her a month ago. She and our other kitty Joey have been getting along great. It took them a few days to figure each other out, but since then they have been buddies. They are pretty cute playing with each other. Mia likes to sit behind the curtain to our patio door and poke her toes out for Joey to try to get. Joey has definitely benefited from us adopting her. We have noticed that his separation anxiety issues have gotten so much better with her around. Thank you so much for helping us adopt our little sweetheart. She has been the perfect addition to our little family.

training was a breeze and I even broke the code on getting her to be more treat driven. Next project is retrieving and recall so we can let her do more running and jumping. She is such a sweet dog. Thank you Homeward Pet for such a great companion.

My wife and I stopped by your shelter earlier this year. We had lost my golden retreiver and the father of my boy. He was very close to both his mom and dad, we lost his mom 2 years ago.
He was very lonely and I could see he was depressed. So my wife says lets go to Homeward Pet and she if we find him a new partner in crime. I am very much an animal lover and wanted to take all doggies home with me, but after looking and introducing him to several worthy parnters, he kinda choose Wonderwomen, I wanted a Lab and a black lab she was.
At first they didnt seem to care, My wife kept Wonderwomen at her house for about 2 weeks, she was an absolutle proper lady. She was house broken, good appetite, and very playful.
I brought her home to my house and to Mr. Mellow, they did the usual doggie dancing. After about 20 minutes they settled down. She loves the park, riding in the doggie truck, sitting in the front seat where she isnt suppose to be, but those big brown eyes, oh well. They both are inseparable, so I wanted to let all of you know that Wonderwomen is now Kamalani, in hawaiian it means "child of a god". I know she will have the life all animals should have healthy,happy and safe. I love her to death, Thank you so much Homeward Pet, I may be by for another trouble maker soon.
