Joker is a 2.5 year old shelter favorite. This sweet boy came to us from a cruetly case where he was found with other dogs in deplorable conditions. He came to us covered in scars and we can only imagine what his previous life was like. Joker waited with us at the shelter during the court case and we are so excited that he is finally ready to be adopted!

Joker can be very shy at first and isn’t overly affectionate with people. However, he really comes to life with another dog! Joker has met many dogs here during his stay but his favorite friend is Petunia 🙂 We think Joker would do best in a home with a doggie friend and a family who is ok with him just keeping to himself.

Joker is super playful in the park and loves swimming in the pool! We think he’d do best in a home with kids 15+. If you are interested in learning more about this sweet boy, please fill out our Canine Adoption Survey.


How to Adopt a Pet

Please visit our Homeward Bound Adoption Center in Eatontown to meet our pets.

We only do adoptions in person (please bring all family members).

We will ask you to fill out a Pets and People Adoption Survey and talk to an Adoption Counselor, who will help you find your perfect match. 

Adopting a pet is a lifelong commitment, so finding the right match is very important.

Finding the perfect pet takes time. The process usually takes at least an hour, so please plan accordingly. All adoption paperwork must be submitted to the front desk one hour before closing.

Adopters are encouraged to bring their own carrier or leash and collar.
