Sam was rescued from living a life tied to a tree with no shelter. He was turned over to our group to find a new home. Sam is a 3 yr old black Great Dane with a horrible home done ear crop . Because his ears have been so badly done - Sam is not pretty and has lingered in his foster home while watching all of the prettier dogs get adopted! Sam has a wonderfu bubbly and loving personality - he just needs a ffamily of his own to share the love he has to give!
Homeward Bound Dog Rescue is a group of individuals who have dedicated our lives to saving dogs from "Kill Shelters" by fostering and adopting these pets out to what is hopefully their "forever" home. We take the majority of our dogs from the kill shelters in Central and South Texas. We are dedicated to helping these animals become family members and not just pets. We are NOT a shelter - but rather individuals that have opened our homes to the unwanted.... if you would like to help in any way - please email us!
Please check out all of the dogs we have on our adoption page - maybe they would make a great addition to your family! We would always like to find the right home for every dog. Because all of our dogs are in foster homes, we usually know if a dog will be happiest with other dogs or without other dogs in the home, if they will be okay with cats, and if they'll be okay with children.
We work with all of the applicants to find the right energy level of dog for their family and the right temperament. All of this pre-adoption work helps to ensure that this adoption will be the perfect fit.
A completed adoption application is required, including the name and number of your current veterinarian and landlord, if applicable. We will contact your current vet, landlord and personal references, if needed.
The adoption fee’s are posted below. All of the adoption fee's go toward our rescue expenses. Unfortunately, the expenses incurred to vaccinate, test and treat (when necessary) for Heartworms, spayed/neutered, micro chipped, and feed these dogs while in rescue far exceeds the adoption fees. Also, many of the dogs that we get into rescue are in need of additional veterinary care as a result of previous abuse and neglect.
