The Perfect Pet: Finding the Right Small Dog to Adopt Near You
Adopting a pet can be a rewarding experience, and small dogs are an increasingly popular choice for pet owners. From their playful personalities to their cuddly nature, small dogs have plenty of advantages. Whether you’re looking for a companion to take on walks or just a furry friend to keep you company, here’s what you need to know about finding the perfect small dog to adopt near you.
Choosing the Right Breed
When it comes to choosing the right breed of small dog, there are several factors to consider. First, think about your lifestyle and how much time and energy you’re willing to devote to your new pet. Some breeds require more exercise than others, so make sure you pick one that fits your lifestyle. Additionally, consider the size of your home and whether or not it can accommodate a small dog. Some breeds are better suited for apartments than others, so take this into account when making your decision.
Finding an Adoption Center
Once you’ve chosen the right breed for you, it’s time to start looking for an adoption center near you. There are many different options available, including animal shelters and rescue organizations. Do some research online and read reviews from other pet owners who have adopted from these organizations in the past. This will help ensure that you find a reputable organization with healthy animals that are ready for adoption.
Preparing Your Home
Before bringing your new pup home, make sure your home is prepared for their arrival. Stock up on food and treats, as well as toys and other supplies they may need. Additionally, create a safe space in your home where they can relax and feel comfortable. This could be a crate or bed with blankets or pillows that they can snuggle up in when they need some alone time.
Adopting a small dog is an exciting experience that can bring joy and companionship into your life. With the right breed and adoption center, plus some preparation at home, you’ll be ready to welcome your new furry friend into your family in no time.

FOUND KITTENS, WHAT TO DO?
If you find a nest of kittens or even a tiny lone kitten (ones that cannot eat on their own) it is best to leave them where they are. Momma cats go out and hunt for food, but they will be back. Tiny kittens have a greater chance of survival if they are able to be with their mom until they are old enough to eat on their own. When should you intervene?

FOSTER BABY KITTENS
Foster care is simply opening your heart and home temporarily for kittens who cannot care for themselves, as well as adult cats who need a break from the center or may be recovering from a medical condition or illness.

Meet me, love me, take me home
Visit our adoption center at 2675 E. Flamingo, near Eastern, designed to minimize the stress and make it easier for cats to find loving homes like yours.
VOLUNTEERS CAN DO ANYTHING
Homeward Bound Cat Adoptions is a volunteer-driven organization, which means that the care of our cats as well as raising awareness for what we do entirely depends on people like you. We would not exist without volunteers.
We're dedicated to finding homes for animals in need. Learn what to consider to ensure a peaceful and happy household and see what pets we have available for adoption!
By being a pet foster parent, you provide a temporary home for an animal prior to adoption. Fostering animals is a wonderful and personal way to contribute to saving rescued pets.
Simply put... without our volunteers, there is no Homeward Bound. Come join our awesome army of volunteers who devote their time, energy, expertise, and love to the rescue and rehab of our animals.
Without the loving donations from our supporters and volunteers, we would not be able to do what we do. It goes without saying, with more donations we can help even more animals.
