How you can help

Adopt

Looking to add a new furry family member? See our adoptable animals on Adopt a Pet or Facebook. Click below to fill out an adoption application. 

Foster

We are always looking for folks to temporarily foster dogs (for 1-3 weeks) because we have a waiting list of dogs to come into the center. Every dog will be up-to-date on vaccines, temperament-tested, and healthy. If you're interested in opening up your home temporarily, please contact us. The more fosters we have, the more animals we can assist!

Volunteer

We always welcome volunteers to sit and cuddle cats, walk and play fetch with dogs, clean, help with outside chores, etc. Our Heading Home Center is located in a peaceful spot overlooking a pond and the beautiful mountains in Tioga County, PA. The rewards of sharing love and interaction with an animal are priceless!
