Clarington, ON | Servicing Southern Ontario
Homeward Bound Rescue is a small group of volunteers in the Durham/Clarington area, that concentrate on flat-faced breeds. These breeds include Boxers, Boston Terriers, English Bulldogs, Mastiffs, French Bulldogs and Pugs. In fact, Homeward Bound is the closest thing to an English Bulldog rescue in all of Ontario.
Homeward Bound believes that a pet is a lifetime commitment, and not every breed of dog is suitable to each person’s lifestyle. They take pride in matching their dogs to the best possible homes. Volunteers help with fostering and caring for those in the rescue, along with assisting with fundraising events to offset the costs of veterinary care for those who come to us sick, neglected or with untreated conditions.
All dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, vet checked, assessed and microchipped before adoption.
About the Rescue
Homeward Bound started as a Boxer rescue and has continued to specialize in flat faced breeds as they can be different then others and need a bit more care and attention. Many need wrinkles and bums cleaned daily, they need special surgeries, need special diets and controlled temperatures as they can not tolerate heat or extreme cold.
Homeward Bound does not adopt dogs to families with children under 5 years old and YOU must be 21years of age or older to adopt a dog from them.
Contact Homeward Bound: firstname.lastname@example.org
There is an adoption fee for each dog. The rescue has to cover veterinary, professional and dietary expenses for all dogs in care through adoption fees and fundraising, which is extremely challenging. All dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, dewormed and microchipped. Often there are “other” issues dealt with as well, such as eye surgery, ear and eye medications, blood work, x-rays etc. It is not unusual for dogs to be relinquished to the rescue sick and cost thousands of dollars in veterinary costs.
