Homeward Bound Pet Shelter - Decatur, IL

Click here for our adoptable pets!

Homeward Bound Pet Shelter (HBPS) shelters and rehabilitates over 400 cats and dogs each year until they can be permanently adopted into loving homes, while providing job training opportunities to individuals with disabilities. This partnership between human services and a pet shelter is the only one of its kind in the country. We have operated as a no-kill, not-for profit organization since April 2002. In July 2005, we became a division of Macon Resources, Inc (MRI).

HBPS maintains a stress-free environment for cats and dogs while they wait for their new families. Cats are free to roam in their rooms and dogs have visiting rooms and a fenced outside play area. All animals are spayed/neutered, kept up-to-date on vaccines, and microchipped. Plus, they’ve been tested for heartworms or feline leukemia/FIV and kept on monthly flea control and heartworm protection.

HBPS relies heavily on donations and volunteers to continue our mission. If you would like to make a contribution, please contact us at (217) 876-1266 or visit our website.
