The Dream Ride Experience 2021


Heartwarming. Inspiring. Moving.


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.

Since 2012, we have been proud to host pet adoptions at our signature Dream Ride Experience, a large-scale charity event that brings people together from all over the world to benefit The Hometown Foundation, Inc. The Dream Ride Experience pet adoption expo brings rescues from the East Coast together to foster a community of animal welfare advocates and to find loving families for homeless pets. This year we will be welcoming pet rescuers to join us on Saturday, August 24 and Sunday, August 25, 2023.

We would like to invite your organization to bring your adoptable animals at no cost to our pet adoption event in the hopes of finding their forever homes! With an expected attendance of more than 15,000 people and extensive press and social media coverage, The Dream Ride Experience is not only a great way for you to find homes for your pets in need, but to also raise public awareness and a wider following for your organization!

  • Date: Saturday, August 24, 2023 and Sunday, August 25, 2023
  • Location: The Farmington Polo Club, 152 Town Farm Road, Farmington, CT 06032
  • Arrival Time: 7:30 to 9 a.m.

Please return the completed application along with additional requested documentation as soon as possible to secure your spot in the Pet Adoption Area. You can send your completed application to me at info@hometownfoundation.org. We will provide you with one (1) table, one (1) tablecloth, two (2) chairs, and a playpen for your adoptable animals in one of our air-conditioned tents. We encourage you to bring any and all materials which can inform Dream Ride attendees about your rescue to help further your great cause! We know that every animal has their own unique personality so when choosing which animals to bring, please choose those who are kid-friendly, playful, and outgoing.

If you have additional requirements or questions, please feel free to contact me directly at 203-250-5661 or email info@hometownfoundation.org. We look forward to seeing you this year at The Dream Ride Experience!
