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.
