When it comes to dancing and great music, The Dream Ride Experience is one of the largest and most desired events of the year!

At The Hometown Foundation, Inc., we know that pets are family! That is why we are proud supporters of the animal welfare community. Through our initiatives to help animals in need, we have facilitated the adoption of hundreds of dogs and cats, donated hundreds of thousands of pounds of pet food, litter, and medical supplies, helped transport animals out of disaster stricken areas, and so much more.
Beginning in 2012, we have been proud to host our pet adoption center at the Dream Ride Experience. Since its inception, dozens of animals have found loving homes through Dream Ride. The Dream Ride Experience pet adoption center brings together rescues from across the country to foster a community of animal welfare advocates, and to find loving families for homeless animals.
The 2022 Dream Ride Experience will welcome animal rescues on both Saturday, August 27 and Sunday, August 28, 2022 from 10:00am - 4:00 pm. Stop by our pet adoption center to meet your new best friend!

Unified Sports is an impactful program that gives athletes with intellectual disabilities, the opportunity to be included on sports teams, engage in sports training to boost their confidence, improve their health and socialize with their peers, while building lasting relationships! The program offers non-disabled participants opportunities to relate to, learn from and form friendships with individuals with intellectual disabilities, while enjoying the experience of being on a sports team.
Unified activities include basketball with NBA Superstars Tayshaun Prince and Ben Wallace, bocce, cheerleading, cornhole, fishing, miniature golf, swimming, yoga, and Zumba!
