Homeward Bound Pet Shelter, an MRI program, shelters and rehabilitates over 400 cats and dogs each year until they can be permanently adopted into loving homes while providing job training opportunities to individuals with disabilities.

In July 2005, Homeward Bound became a division of MRI (Macon Resources, Inc). This partnership between human services and a pet shelter is the only one of its kind in the country.

Homeward Bound Pet Shelter is a no-kill shelter. Homeward Bound maintains a stress-free environment for 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.
