Adopt With Us

Effective Sunday, March 22, 2020

To minimize the traffic inside the shelter and maintaining social-distance, while still giving our pets a chance at being adopted, we have instituted “adoptions by appointment”, effective March 24, 2020.

If you are interested in adopting a cat or dog, please use our Sign Up Genius to schedule your 30 minute time slot. Remember to show up promptly at the beginning of your scheduled time. It is recommended that you complete our adoption questionnaire and email it to info@homewardboundnj.org in advance, or complete it and bring it with you. Once a suitable match has been made we’ll process your adoption paperwork and have you on your way with your newest family member. Please call ahead or email us with any questions.

Adoption Questionnare 

 

Welcome, we are excited that you have made the lifetime commitment to adopt with us!  We are here to help you find the best pet to meet your lifestyle. Our adoption process is designed to help pair you with the best furry companion. Our pets are ready to go home with you today!

We encourage the entire family to come along with you to meet your soon-to-be family addition. If you have pets, we can schedule a meet and greet with our trained staff to make sure the new pet is a great fit for all family members. You can meet more cats seeking homes at our satellite adoption centers.
