Homeward Bound Pet Adoption Center invites the public to enter their pets in an online Halloween photo contest to help raise funds for animal shelters.


The first place winner will receive a photo shoot with their pet with Kat Lucille Photography and the first and second runners up will receive a goody bag with prizes for their pet.

“We encourage all of our resident pet owners to submit photos of their furry friends,” Commissioner Jon Young said. “It’s a fun way to get into the Halloween spirit and a chance to win great prizes, all for a good cause.”

The contest is open now and photos can be submitted. Voting runs until October 30.

$10 adoption fee

Homeward Bound will also be offering a $10 adoption fee for the next two weeks as the shelter continues to battle an influx of dogs and cats.

“We struggle to make sure we have room for all the cats and dogs that come through the door,” said Lysa Boston, executive director of the shelter. “This is a special price for a limited time to find forever homes for all of our furry friends. We hope residents will open their homes and hearts to add a new member to their family.

At the shelter, the reception of cats is up by 17% this year and that of dogs by 15% compared to the previous year. The shelter currently welcomes more than 140 dogs and 400 cats.

More information on all pets in need and how you can help can be found on their website, www.homewardboundnj.org
