OWEN UPDATE!! The foster family for HBR’s OWEN provided the following update on his progress: “Owen came to us as a foster on June 16 and he is totally settled in. He is an awesome dog and should get adopted real quick! He lived in a basement for the first 4 years of his life and when surrendered, the vet said it was the worst flea infestation on any dog he had ever seen. But Owen is super friendly and curious and a really good boy! So all is well with us! ”Way to go foster family! Stay tuned for more Owen updates!

A FOSTERING TALE – NELLY HBR volunteer and foster, Denise, shared the following heartwarming story about fostering Nelly: “Nelly was our 5th foster and came to us in March of 2018. A young boxer/bulldog mix, this lovable character made herself at home immediately. She claimed the male humans of the household as her own and was either sharing the couch with one of them or begging them to play. She was happiest being the center of attention.We established a routine that included a walk in the morning and playtime at the dog park in the evening. Nelly would let us know when it was time to go to the dog park. She planted her butt in front of you and grumbled until we said, “Okay, let’s go!”. She loved being social and meeting other humans and dogs alike. She was a great ambassador for Homeward Bound.We have fond memories of Nelly and our adventures that summer; playing at the beach, trips to the cottage and lots of hikes. On a cold day in fall, Nelly found her forever family. They traveled a long way to meet her and we knew it was the family we had been waiting for. Fostering is not for the faint of heart, you fall in love then have to say good bye. The memories you are left with are golden.”If you are interested in fostering with HBR, please visit our website and fill out an application! www.homewardboundrescue.ca
