Community Support

Need cat help?

Homeward Bound is committed to making decisions and providing appropriate support in each cat’s best interest and welfare, depending on their unique needs and situation.

Owned Cats

Your pet is depending on you to do your best for them.

It is our first priority to provide counseling, information, and access to services to keep cats in their homes and with the people who love them, however, we also understand that sometimes situations arise and giving up your pet may be in his or her best interest.

Regarding surrenders, we are not an open intake facility and must consider many factors before intaking any cats or kittens, including space and medical care. We are currently accepting owner surrenders by appointment only, and we are not able to accept every cat. Surrender fees vary, and appointments may be several days out, often a week or more. That is why we are looking at other options for help, and trying to gather as much information as possible about your cats so we can triage every situation individually.

We also encourage you to directly rehome your kitty by yourself so that she goes from one home to another, skipping the shelter entirely (which is best for her health and overall wellbeing). That means she will stay with you until a home is found. We can assist with writing a bio for her, networking to local groups, guidance for talking to potential adopters and hosting meet and greets, and more. We’ll feature her on social media, and direct all inquiries to you. You know your cat best so who better to help find a new family for her—not to mention, if you choose, you can stay in touch with the new family!

If you need help with your owned cat, please email us at  info@homewardboundcats.org. We’ll look at the best options available for your cat based on your individual needs.
