Mission Statement

Our main mission is to promote lifelong happiness for our dogs and their adoptive families. volunteers come from all walks of life and share one common passion - we love dogs, all kinds of dogs. We were formed because we saw many young, old, happy, healthy puppies and dogs being euthanized in shelters because there was no foster space or other rescue groups with room to take them until their forever home could be found. Our focus is finding those family dogs who just need a little more time and exposure, and helping them find their way home.


We rescue dogs that have been turned over to shelters, surrendered to us through our surrender program and rescued from puppy mills. Homeward Bound dogs live in a foster home until they are ready to move into a new forever home. They eat, sleep and live with us and that way we have a better understanding of who they are. This foster arrangement allows the dogs to learn to live in a home, which gives us the opportunity to match families up with our dogs so a home really is forever! All of our dogs are up to date on shots and have seen a vet. We make every effort to have our dogs and puppies spayed/neutered prior to placement. All Homeward Bound Dogs receive regular veterinary care for the life of the dog, and we also require that the animals that you currently have in your home have also been spayed/neutered with a history of regular veterinary care. Everyone is very welcomed to come to our clinics, and this is where we will be best able to show you all of our dogs. We meet every Saturday at Benson's Pet Store on Wolf Road in Albany, New York. At that time all of the foster families bring the puppies and dogs that our in their care to the store for interested people to meet. There is an application process that interested people must complete and also a home visit required prior to any adoption.
