Stories of Transformation: Join us in Supporting Homeward Pet Transforming Fear to Trust: Bowie’s Journey and why your support matters How do you help an animal that won’t interact? That was the problem we faced when Bowie and his brother Magnet came to Homeward Pet. Here were two beautiful, healthy dogs who had spent their lives outdoors, away from human contact, and had developed no trust in people. When they came to Homeward Pet, these boys kept to the back of their kennel whenever anyone approached. Homeward Pet’s Behavior Senior Manager, Jenny Black, evaluated both dogs as individuals eve ..read more

Harvey Dent – Pain-Free for the First Time in a Long Time

as shared by Jim Keller/Operations Director Earlier this year, we received a call about an injured, 7-month-old, Cattle Dog mix that needed our help. Our rescue partner, Yakima Valley Pet Rescue had done some x-rays, which revealed a fractured hip joint that they were not equipped to support through the treatment and recovery time needed. We knew that our clinic and veterinary partners could help. My wife and I offered to foster him through his surgery and recovery, and Harvey Dent was transferred to Homeward Pet the following week. The day after Harvey arrived, I took him to Animal Emergency ..read more

#TabithaTuesday

1.31.23 – It’s Tabitha Tuesday! We’ve received a lot of questions about Tabitha’s backstory. How did she find her way to Homeward Pet? Why is she so scared of new people and so slow to trust? Why doesn’t she get along with other dogs? While we can make assumptions, we don’t feel like that does Tabitha justice. While it is true that her past may play a role in how she reacts to the world around her now, we just can’t possibly know exactly what happened or if things would be different if she had different experiences before coming to us. Genetics play a huge role in behavior too! We do know ..read more

It’s our 33rd Anniversary!

It’s time to celebrate – Homeward Pet Adoption Center is turning 33! While we continue to look forward and have so many exciting plans, we wanted to spend some time reflecting on the last 33 years.  As we prepared this information, one thing remained true – Homeward Pet is only here because of YOU! In 1990, founder Peggy Barnish opened the Hooterville Pet Safehaus, when she noticed a need for a shelter that did not have a euthanasia deadline. During that first year, under the direction of Peggy, 370 cats and dogs found their forever homes. The organization grew with the help, love, and de ..read more

Dog Room Remodel

After months of planning and a couple of key grants and donations, we are finally able to start our dog room remodel! Our remodel will provide a more Fear Free space for the dogs housed in the shelter and a safer environment for staff and volunteers handling dogs. This includes dividing the room into three smaller spaces, installing new kennels that will offer double-space for housing, creating a new kennel layout that will reduce noise levels, lessen dog reactivity and stress, and help prevent the spread of disease. The project will begin on Monday January 16th. During the first phase, the co ..read more

The Stories of Giving Tuesday 2022

Juliet and Mishka are so thankful for you. Giving Tuesday, the biggest giving day of the year, is only 2 weeks away! While many of the animals that come through our doors spend their time in kennels in our shelter, others are better served by using our foster program. Some situations require longer stays – such as when we have a bonded pair of animals. A foster home is more comfortable and provides us with a lot more information about how these animals act in a home environment. We do our best to keep bonded animals together. Juliet and Mishka came to us in March. They were big beautiful cats ..read more

Our Commitment to Boone

Boone arrived at Homeward Pet in May of this year, terrified and shaking.  He had never seen a leash and it was all we could do to safely get him from the car to his room at the shelter.  At 9 months old, he was already so very scared of the world, so our Behavior Manager knew we needed to come up with a clear plan for his care and confidence building.   Homeward Pet uses Fear Free practices for all of the animals under our roof. Fear Free entails making decisions to prevent and alleviate fear, anxiety, and stress in pets during every interaction.  Admission to any she ..read more

Twyla – From Shy to Shining

Our commitment to the animals in our care doesn’t start with the day that they enter our shelter, nor does it end on the day they leave it. Twyla was a special behavior case back in 2020-2021. She was terrified and unable to be touched from day one. For a month prior to her arrival, multiple staff members worked together to ensure we had the right set-up (foster, behavior medications, planning surgeries/medical care, etc.). We did not want there to be a single avoidable fearful moment for her during her stay with us. In her foster home, she was untouchable for over a month, needing even longer ..read more
