How does this organization make a difference?

Impact statement

The past two years have been some of our strongest, with more than 4,300 dogs, cats, bunnies, small and furries and wildlife saved annually. Changes in operations resulted in higher save rates, especially for cats, and news ways to think about collaboration among agencies. The relationships that we have and are building with other New Jersey animal welfare organizations are helping us model best practices, advocate as an industry for statewide reform and expand our influence. We’re also developing stronger partnerships with the two main national animal welfare organizations – Humane Society of the US and the ASPCA.

Program 1

Homeward Bound Adoption Centers - Eatontown & Freehold

We have two Adoption Centers - at our main facility in Eatontown, and at the Freehold Raceway Mall on the lower level.  Each year, we match thousands of deserving pets with loving new families.  All animals are vaccinated, micro-chipped, tested for FIV and leukemia or heartworm, and spayed or neutered prior to adoption.

Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Self-reported by organization

  1. What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
    The Board of Directors’ vision for the organization includes making NJ a place where every adoptable pet has an opportunity for a home and where euthanasia is no longer used as a means of controlling shelter populations.
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    Free spay/neuter surgeries for at-risk populations, spearheading Trap, Neuter and Return programs across Monmouth County, adoption promotions focused on how length of stay impacts quality of life, individual behavior IDP's for animals at risk in the shelter system, a retail adoption model in a satellite location and increased outreach and marketing to raise the organization's profile in the community.
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    A state-of-the-art facility, with a renovation completed in 2010 that has capacity for 350 cats, 80 dogs and 20 other animals, a broad base of support with more than 35,000 local supporters, a retail location in a high-traffic shopping mall that also offers adoptions during mall hours, and a spay/neuter clinic recently retrofitted for high-volume spay/neuter surgeries
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    We closely watch our intake by species and breed, and expect to see reductions in intake of the highest risk breeds, as well as of free-roaming cats. We also closely watch length of stay in the shelter and again expect to see across the board reductions, as well as higher reductions by breed. We track numbers of adoptions and redemptions by species and breed, as well as spay/neuter surgeries by type.
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    We completed a retrofit of our spay/neuter clinic to perform high-volume spay/neuter surgeries, hired a full time behavior team for both dogs and cats, opened the retail adoption center in the Freehold Raceway Mall
