Adoption Events

We hold a pet adoption at a local pet store in the Twin Cities metro area of Minnesota from 11:00 a.m. to 2 p.m.

*Note – if we are short on core volunteers, our adoptions sometimes begin slightly later than 11:00. It just depends on how many volunteers show up to help unload/set up the cages and bring the dogs in from the vans.

What To Expect at an Adoption Event

Homeward Bound dog adoption events are fun, energetic, slightly chaotic, usually pretty noisy, and your heart will be broken and warmed all at the same time! Please feel free to come volunteer. We always love to get extra help unloading, setting up, walking dogs, and cleaning up!

Check out the list of upcoming adoption events below, we look forward to seeing you!
