In shelter Dog

Albany, NY, 12205
Pet name:
**WE ARE ALWAYS IN NEED OF FOSTER HOMES**  Homeward Bound Dog Rescue is an all volunteer rescue organization and all our dogs and puppies are in foster homes - we are not a shelter and do NOT have a facility where we house our dogs. For adoption information go to:  You must fill out an application online as we do NOT accept applications at our clinics.

Hi, I am Ella, a pretty Hound/Pit mix girl who weighs in at 45 lb.  I was an owner surrender and when I got into my foster home I was pretty upset and just wanted to go home.  I am getting used to things and would love a playmate. I am calming down and sleeping on the bed at night. I am an energetic girl so an active family would be nice.  I am not good with cats.

We are presently not holding our regular Saturday adoption clinics due to the Covid-19 virus.  We are operating on a limited basis until further notice, but we are still adopting dogs out. We require an approved application before we consider anyone for an adoption - so filling out the application is your first step.   Different dogs and puppies go up for adoption EVERY WEEK so please feel free to visit the site and click on the Petfinder link for updates. Puppies and dogs up to 2 years old are $350. Dogs over 2 years old are $250. 100% of the adoption fees go to help us save more dogs.

AAHA provides an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered. AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
