Homeward Bound Pet Shelter
In July 2005, Homeward Bound became a division of Macon Resources, Inc. (MRI). It's a great partnership that helps pets and people with disabilities.
The mission of Homeward Bound Pet Shelter is to shelter and rehabilitate relinquished cats, kittens, dogs, and puppies until they can be permanently adopted into loving homes.
We try to maintain a stress-free environment for our cats and dogs while they wait for their new families. Cats are free to roam in their rooms, and dogs have visiting rooms and a fenced outside play area.
All animals are spayed/neutered, kept up-to-date on vaccines, and microchipped. Plus, they’ve been tested for heartworms or feline leukemia/FIV and kept on monthly flea control and heartworm protection.
We're located at 1720 East Huston Drive, Decatur. Our phone number is 217-876-1266.

Homeward Bound Pet Shelter's 2013 Fund Drive
October 07, 2013
Our mission only continues with your help
Homeward Bound Pet Shelter's August 12-hour fundraising day with Cromwell Radio Group and WAND-TV jump started our annual $50,000 campaign with over $13,000 in donations from business and individual supporters! Last year, we exceeded our goal. We need your help again this year to make our goal by Christmas!
Because Homeward Bound receives no funding from government or county agencies, we rely on contributions like yours to fulfill our mission. YOUR support makes a difference for the hundreds of pets who count on us each year. Your donation will be used to give those basic needs no pet should be without: food, shelter, and above all else, compassion.
UPDATE: As of 11/18/13, we've reached past the $24,000 mark!
