Homeward Bound Pet Rescue has a new name! Due to some confusion with another rescue in the area, we have changed our name to Angel Paws Pet Rescue. All of our contact information remains the same.

As always, we are always looking for foster homes for ALL types of animals! We provide veterinary care and training, as needed while in foster. The more foster homes we have the more dogs we can save. If you are able to open your home please email us for more information or an application today!

If you have a pet you can no longer keep please email for assistance. Please include the animals breed, age, time frame for placement and your location(city). All surrendering owners must be willing to complete our intake form and schedule an appointment for a temperament test with one of our rescue agents. We do not currently charge any surrender fees but do ask, if possible, for a donation of a bag of grain-free dry dog food at the time of actual surrender to the rescue. This allows us to provide food to our foster homes and to the local community as needed. We must also receive a copy of your dogs current shot records with the intake form. If you are unable to scan a copy with the emailed intake form we will provide our mailing address. If your dog is not current on vaccines please let us know so that we can plan on getting those completed shortly after surrender. We do not require that the dog be spayed/neutered at the time of surrender. We will be sure this is complete prior to adoption. Please know that we will do out best to find a suitable foster home that meets your dog's needs within your time frame but depending on the dog's temperament and breed this can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. We want to be sure your dog is successful in its new environment and will not place them in just any home and set them up for failure so we ask that you be patient with the process as we only have the dog's best interest in mind.
Please please please like our Page! We need the exposure and more foster homes so we can continue our mission!!/AngelPawsPetRescue.

Our Featured Pet...

We feel ALL of our pets should be featured! Regardless of what breed, size or age you are looking for, we're sure you can find a dog that meets your needs! Please see our list of adoptable pets for a current list of all of the wonderful pets we have!


Angel Paws Pet Rescue, formerly Homeward Bound Pet Rescue, has rescued and placed 600+ dogs since January 2007! We appreciate the support of everyone who has helped us with our ongoing efforts!

NOTE: WE ARE NOT A SHELTER AND DO NOT HAVE THE MEANS TO TAKE IN SURRENDERS/STRAYS ON SHORT NOTICE. If you have found a dog or cat, please file a "found" report with Animal Control and have them scanned for a microchip at any vet. We are able to assist with the placement of all pets including cats, ferrets, rats and other rodents, birds, as well as horses and livestock. Please email for availability of foster homes for these types of animals.

Who We Are

Angel Paws Pet Rescue is dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of homeless and neglected pets and placing them in loving, permanent homes. All pets that come to us are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, wormed, treated for fleas (if needed) prior to adoption unless otherwise noted. Other services may be provide as deemed necessary by APPR. We take great care in placing our pets in loving homes by requiring an application, reference check, and home visit. Adoption fees range from $100-$450 based on breed, age and vet care provided. All adoption fees go directly back into the care and medical expenses of the pets in rescue.

Adopting a friend

Angel Paws Pet Rescue requires an application, reference check and home visit as part of our adoption process. Anyone interested in adopting one of our dogs or puppies must submit an application and once approved, we will schedule an initial "meet and greet". Once you have met and determined that this is the pet for you then we will schedule a home visit where we will complete the final adoption paperwork and arrange to bring your new pet home! We process applications as quickly as possible and can usually arrange for an initial meet and greet within a day or two of approving your application. Average time for the entire process is 2-3 days.

**Due to limited time and resources, you MUST have an approved application before you will be considered for any pet.** We want to first determine if you would be a match for the animal you are applying for and that you meet our requirements for the type of home we are looking for for our animals ie: indoor companion only, within your counties legal animal limit, etc. We do not hold animals for anyone without having met the dog and having a deposit and signed adoption agreement on file. Please do not email about an animal or to complete an application unless you are ready to adopt right away as we will not hold them while you are on vacation and other things of that general nature. There will be a $10/day charge for boarding if you apply for and meet an animal and are unable to bring your new pet home within two days of signing agreement and paying deposit. We take great care in and spend 100% volunteer time processing applications so please be committed to at least meeting the dog you are completing an application for. Completing an application is not a committment to adopting the animal you are interested in. We do not currently charge an application fee. Processing fee of $25 may apply, ask rescue agent for details. If you are looking at other dogs with other groups or shelters or planning a vacation before final placement can occur please let us know prior to submitting an application. If you are not interested in a particular dog but wish to use our match-maker services please email for an application and we would be happy to find you the perfect fit for your home! We do offer other pet services to our adoptive homes such as low-cost boarding, training tips and referrals, pet-sitting in your home or ours and dog walking. Please email for prices and availability. We make a lifelong comittment to each dog we adopt out and are here to help the adopters and the adoptees in any way we can!

Come Visit Us!

Unfortunately we DO NOT allow visits at this time as all of our dogs are in foster homes throughout the area. If you are interested in a particular dog, please email us through their profile page with any questions or for an application. Phone calls will be returned within 72-hours. Emails same day.
