Frequently Asked Questions about Puppy Grams

Q: I just received a Puppy Gram! Do I get to keep the puppy?
A: You get to enjoy the joy of puppy cuddles for a 20 minutes time period, but it is not yours to keep.

Q: But what if I fall in love with the puppy and want to adopt them?
A: All puppies will be available for adoption after Valentine’s Day! Visit our website for more information about our adoption process.

Q: Where can I deliver a Puppy Gram on Valentine’s Day?
A: At this time we are only able to deliver within a 15 mile radius of our shelter on Lorraine Road.

Q: What if the business does not allow animals inside?

A: Email with questions or special requests.



With seventy percent of the $10 million dollars needed to build the new facility secured, phase 1 of The Journey Home will begin on November 11, 2019. The project will be divided into 3 phases, with phase 1 focusing on site development and temporary relocation of current admin and veterinary functions to make way for new construction in phases 2-3. Site development is key to solving the current flooding issues on the 8 acre property. The entire elevation will be raised by roughly 18 inches, with additional drainage and retention ponds created in key areas. Additional funding is still needed for phases 2 through 3 of the project, which include the new adoption center, veterinary clinic and additional housing areas, doubling the current capacity of the shelter

The shelter will stay open throughout construction in order to serve the ever growing demand for services in the community. Increased support from foster families during the year long project will be vital to maintain the current volume of over 2,100 animals saved each year.

Nate’s Honor Animal Rescue routinely partners with local food banks to provide at risk families with food for their pets. The government shutdown has forced furloughed employees to reach out to local organizations for temporary assistance while they await their overdue pay checks.
