About Homeward Bound Pets


PO Box 8, 10601 Loop Road, McMinnville, OR 97128, US

Mission Statement

Improving the lives of cats and dogs through adoption and community partnerships.


Are you interested in making a difference in your community? The Homeward Bound Pets Humane Society is looking for caring and dedicated volunteers. You'll join a network of hard working people looking to make the world safe and humane for companion animals.

Homeward Bound Pets is a non-profit organization, which operates solely from contributions from caring, concerned citizens, fundraising activities, the proceeds from the Homeward Bound Thrift Shop, and adoption/surrender fees. We appreciate and thank all that assist us with our mission.

Homeward Bound Pets is Oregon's first no-kill shelter. We are dedicated to providing a safe and caring environment for homeless animals until they find their new homes. We feel that each animal has unique qualities that someone is looking for in a companion pet. Every cat and dog that comes to our shelter is given the time for their future family to find them and adopt them into their new forever home. Every animal matters.



We'll work with your schedule.
