Buddy is looking for one


This big lovable boy was given up because of allergies and found himself at a shelter. Lucky for him Homeward Trails found out and brought him into our rescue group. Buddy is very sweet, good with other cats and in good health.

Buddy is about 8 years old and living in a foster home in the metro DC area.  He has a short and silky coat and a friendly and loving personality.

If you would like to fill out an adoption questionnaire for this cat, please click here and e-mail the questionnaire to stephanielitos@gmail.com.

Darius, very friendly cat


Darius is a wonderful cat and a total shelter favorite! This declawed guy was found as a stray. Because he has no front claws, he had no way to get food for himself outside, so he was emaciated. He was taken to the shelter, where they fattened him up (although he's still skinny!), and they found that he was incredibly sweet and loving. He was often in the front room of the shelter, greeting people as they walked in.

Darius is great with other cats and loves being around people. Darius is about five years old, negative for FIV and feline leukemia, microchipped, neutered, up-to-date on his shots, and front-paw declawed.


Darius is living in an Alexandria foster home as he waits to find his forever home.

Emily and Junebug, two tortie sisters

Meet Emily and Junebug! These two sisters have been together their whole lives and are looking for an adopter to take them as a pair.

Emily is a dilute tortie with a white chest and paws and longer fur. She is very sweet and social and absolutely adores people. She does well with everything and everyone! One of her favorite things is being brushed, which helps to keep her beautiful long fur looking its best.

Her sister, Junebug, is a short-haired tortie/calico who also enjoys being pet. She is bigger than her sister, but that just means there is more of her to love! Both Emily and Junebug are declawed on their front paws. We aren't positive of their age, but estimate they are in the 7-11 year old range.

Emily and Junebug are living in a foster home, Bethesda, Md.  They are eager to find an adoptive home together.

Emily has long fur, Junebug's is short


Halle, senior med. haired calico beauty


Are you looking for a low-key lap cat who wants to be your best friend? Look no further than Halle! This sweet girl is very loving, and just wants someone to love her back. As soon as you approach her, she starts to purr. She has gorgeous medium-long fur with a cute calico pattern, and her fur is easy to maintain because she loves being brushed. As soon as you run the brush over her fur, she begins to purr some more!

Halle is ten years old and was given up because her owners could no longer afford to have a pet. She is fine around other cats, and is an all-around easygoing sweetie. She is negative for FIV and feline leukemia, has been spayed, is declawed on her front paws, is up-to-date on shots, and has been microchipped.

Halle is living in a foster home in Northern Virginia

Jax is hoping the third time is the charm


Meet Jax! Poor Jax has been through a lot lately, and is just looking for a home where he can be loved. Jax was adopted as a kitten by couple who loved him, but after eight years of living together happily, Jax's owners passed away. A relative took Jax in but had a stroke a few months later, and Jax ended up at the shelter.

Homeward Trails took Jax in to give him a chance to find happiness again. Jax absolutely adores petting sessions, and is a nice quiet kitty. He is almost nine years old and is very sweet. Based on his looks, we have a strong belief that he is an American Shorthair cat. He is a big-boned guy and has been declawed on his front paws. Jax is up to date on all of his shots, hs been neutered, and is negative for FIV and feline leukemia.


Jax is living in a foster home in Washington, D.C.

Fantastic Rex, the cat


Rex is a fantastic cat who adores people, including children! Rex was adopted from a shelter when he was a kitten and then returned two and a half years later because the kids in his home had allergies. His original owner said he was fantastic with her children, who ranged in age from infancy to six years old.

He absolutely loves human attention and would be thrilled if he could be pet all day long. We also know that Rex has lived with another cat in the past. He is a gorgeous cat with medium-long black fur with a white spot on his chest and one paw, and he has a huge, bushy tail. Rex has been declawed on his front paws and is up-to-date on vaccines, negative for FIV and feline leukemia, neutered and microchipped.


As of May 2101, Rex is two years, nine months.  He is living in a foster home in Northern Virginia

ADOPTED! Suga is a sweet, happy boy in need

Suga also adores humans. Suga is declawed on his front paws and is about seven years old.  Suga is living in a foster home in Northern Virginia.

Sugar is Sweet


Sugar is a long haired senior beauty. When local authorities were informed of numerous animals living in less than desirable conditions, they seized several cats and dogs, including Sugar. Sugar was brought to the shelter where she charmed the shelter staff and quickly became a shelter favorite. HT was called to help and we are sure glad we did!!

Sugar is super affectionate and just loves people. She is a very special girl who will steal your heart! She loves to be pet and brushed. She will purr madly when you come near her with a brush.  She is super affectionate and gets along OK with most cats and dogs.


Sugar is estimated at 9 years old.  She is living in a foster home in Arlington VA.

Sushi - what a beautifully expressive face!


Sushi is a fantastic cat looking for a permanent home. Sushi is very sweet and friendly, and gets along with other cats, and she also loves humans! Sushi is declawed, so if you have concerns about your carpets or furniture being torn up, there is no need to worry! She is ten years old, which means she has many years left to be your companion.

Sushi is a short haired tabby living in a foster home in Bethesda, MD.

Sweet Blackie!



Blackie is a fantastic, sweet cat looking for a forever home! This guy is about seven years old, loves people and does well with other cats! He would make a fantastic addition to any home. Blackie was declawed by his previous owner. He ended up at a shelter, where he was rescued by Homeward Trails. Unfortunately, our vet thinks that Blackie's declaw surgery may have been botched, so we are working on getting Blackie x-rays to check his paws. If the surgery wasn't done properly, we will get Blackie the corrective surgery he needs. Blackie is an absolutely wonderful cat and will make someone very happy. Could it be you?

Blackie is living in a foster home in Washington, D.C.
The adoption fee for Blackie is $100.00, which helps with cost of routine vet care, as well as spay/neuter surgery.

If you are interested in adopting Blackie, please fill out our cat adoption questionnaire and e-mail it to stephanielitos@gmail.com.
