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 or abandoned 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 admissions, we are not an open admission facility and must consider many factors before intaking any cats or kittens, including space and medical care. We are currently accepting owned or found cats by appointment only, including an admission fee in order to help us provide the necessary care for each cat. 

We also encourage you to directly rehome your kitty by yourself so that she goes from one home to another, skipping the adoption center 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, 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 an owned or found cat, please email us at  intake@homewardboundcats.org. We’ll look at the best options available for your cat based on your individual needs.
