We Love Our Donors!
The most challenging aspect of building and maintaining any no-kill shelter is the expense. YOU can play an
important role in Homeward Bound's rescue work by donating as an individual or through your
business, your organization, your church. All donations are tax deductible and
100% of the proceeds are spent on the animals in our care.
Truthfully, the bread and butter of our organization are the $5, $10, and $20 donations. Each and every donation,
no matter how small, makes a difference!
Without the generous donations from ALL our supporters and animal loving members, we would not be able to save the
many homeless dogs and cats in North Georgia. It goes without saying, with more donations we can save even more lives.
We can help to reduce the overpopulation of unwanted animals through more extensive spay/neuter programs.
From time to time, we love to spotlight particular donations:
- Becky, one of our HBPR volunteers opened an online Candle company, Mountain Ridge Candles, in March 2020 and makes
all natural soy candles in glass containers. Becky said, "I started this Company so I could give back." Mountain Ridge
Candles will give 10% to local charities. Also......... there are special collections like The Rescue Us Collection
where all net proceeds will go to Homeward Bound Pet Rescue. The scents have some interesting names such as
Wiggle Butt and U had me @ Meow. Please check out Becky's website
Mountain Ridge Candles and tell her you saw her on HBPR !
- Jennifer Danner, who surrendered Teddy, the yellow lab to us, has donated $1000 for Teddy's HW treatment. Jennifer
created Christmas ornaments and sold them so she could pay for the treatment.
- Recently, one of our members presented
the Homeward Bound shelter with a Generac generator for backup power. This means there won't ever be an
interruption of power during inclement weather. The volunteers won't have to worry if the lights go out and
will be able to care for each animal in the air conditioned kennel. The gift was made in the memory of
Sam and Corona,
former rescues who have now crossed over the rainbow bridge. Donors Jim and Wendy said, "the donation is not specifically
about Sam and Corona, but is made in their honor and to commemorate how our lives changed after bringing them
into our home."
With your help, Homeward Bound will continue to help those who have no voice: the trusting, loving, abandoned pets of
North Georgia. Thank You!
