Paw Protector Sponsor Program
Homeward Bound’s Paw Protector Sponsor Program allows supporters to sponsor one of our lovable dogs and cats. Your support of $70 will assist in providing shelter and care to the homeless animal until a loving home can be found. In appreciation of your generous donation, you will receive a photo of your sponsored pet. To be a part of the program, send a $70 donation and your name and address to PO Box 3831, Decatur, IL 62524. Also let us know your choice of wanting to sponsor a dog or cat.
