Frequently Asked Questions
How Long Does the Process Take?

Each situation is different but once approved and all the prerequisites are fulfilled, it’s a relatively quick process to adopt or foster.

How Much Does Adopting Cost?

The adoption fee at Homeward Bound Animal Rescue varies, as it’s influenced by the pet’s individual care needs. While these fees help cover some of the costs for vaccinations, spaying/neutering, microchipping, and medical treatment, it’s important to remember they rarely cover the full amount spent on each animal. Our primary aim with these fees is to ensure each pet finds a loving home and to support the care of other animals in need, not to make a profit.

What Is the Difference Between Adopting and Fostering?

Adopting is a commitment to permanently welcome a pet into your home, providing it with love, care, and support for its lifetime. Fostering, however, is a temporary arrangement where you care for a pet until it finds its forever home. This can help the pet recover from surgery, grow, or socialize in a comforting environment. While adoption is a long-term responsibility, fostering is a vital, short-term support to help pets transition to permanent homes.

Will I need Additional Veterinarian Services?

All animals available for adoption or foster from Homeward Bound Animal Rescue have undergone a comprehensive veterinary check-up and received any necessary care to ensure their wellness. This includes vaccinations, microchipping, and spay or neuter procedures. While we strive to ensure that every animal is healthy before joining a new home, it’s important for adopters and foster caregivers to understand that future veterinary care will be necessary to maintain the animal’s health. Regular check-ups, vaccinations, and any unforeseen medical needs should be anticipated as part of the ongoing care for your new pet.

Can I take A Pet Home Directly From the Shelter?

Upon the successful approval and processing of your application, along with the completion of all necessary prerequisites, animals will be officially released to their new homes, whether for fostering or adoption. This process ensures that each animal is placed into a loving and prepared environment. We take careful steps to match pets with suitable families, making sure that both the animal’s needs and the adopter’s or foster’s capabilities are well aligned. It is our priority to ensure a smooth transition for the animals into their new homes, fostering a positive and lasting relationship from the start.
