New Jersey Aid for Animals

Cedarbrook, NJ 08004

PET ENRICHMENT PROGRAM

In addition to transporting owned dogs and cats to get spayed and neutered to help stem the tide of over-reproduction, NJAFA has also been providing ancillary supplies and services for dogs and cats through PEP for the last five years.

PEP enriches the lives of dogs and cats after they get spayed or neutered. For example, pain medication - the low cost clinics do offer pain medication but the residents of Camden have to pay extra for it. Without the funds to pay for even a spay or neuter most residents do not have extra funds for pain meds. PEP pays for the pain meds.

PEP provides for much needed shots that will prevent PARVO, a very contagious sometimes fatal disease that dogs contract and can cost up to hundreds of dollars to treat.

Money donated to PEP also pays for flea treatment, a dog house, a bag of food or any extra component that will enhance the life of an animal after they are spayed or neutered and before they are returned to the owners.
For more information email info@njafa.org

SHOT CLINIC FOR CAMDEN ANIMALS

NJAFA is hosting shot clinics for dogs and cats in Camden City. These clinics provide much needed vaccinations for dogs that without the shot could acquire Parvo, a contagious and sometimes fatal disease. We also provide cat distemper shots, food for dogs and cats, flea treatment and collars and leashes.

SPAY/NEUTER PROGRAM FOR DOGS AND CATS IN CAMDEN CITY, NJ

President, Kathy McGuire, transports owned dogs and cats from the homes of Camden City residents to a clinic to get spayed or neutered for people who cannot afford it or do not have transportation. We pick up the animals in the morning, transport them to clinic and return them later same day.For more information email info@njafa.org

FOR FERALS ONLY
For eighteen months, NJAFA has been partnering with Atlantic Co. SPCA spaying and neutering feral cats to be released back into managed colonies.Recently, we hit our 500th mark and are going strong.

Contact them for more information about spay/neuter and their vaccination programs.

West Milford Messinger December 24, 2009

West Milford - The township council approved a trap-neuter-return policy for feral cats in West Milford. The policy attempts to ease the problems that over-populations of wild cats can cause in neighborhoods.

This ordinance names the West Milford Animal Shelter Society as a sponsor and gives it the responsibility to review and approve caregivers, those who feed, water and shelter the cats, of feral cat colonies. It also specifies that the shelter will bear any costs for caring for the cats.


Suggest you contact the shelter for more information about their programs for ferals.

T. +1.856.302.6373
F. +1.856.245.7840

info@princechunkfoundation.org

The Prince Chunk Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that enables pet owners to keep their pets during times of financial crisis by providing temporary assistance to pet owners throughout New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and California. Providing this aid is critical to achieve a lower animal abandonment rate, and most importantly, a lower euthanasia rate nationally.

http://www.princechunkfoundation.org/veterinary-care-assistance.php

The Emergency Veterinary Care Assistance Program provides free emergency care to applicants who are currently experiencing financial hardships. Every day, sick and injured animals are brought to shelters across the country because their owners do not have the means to come up with several hundred or several thousand dollars for emergency medical bills. Sadly, due to most animal shelter funding being insufficient, the animals in need of expensive medical care are usually euthanized.

Pre-Apply!
If you are currently experiencing financial hardship and feel that this program would be useful to you should an emergency occur, please fill out a pre-approval application and submit the required documentation listed below. By applying early, your application can be kept on file and pre-approved, allowing your pet to receive the emergency care they require as quickly as possible. Please be sure to check our “Maximum Family Income Eligibility” Document to ensure you qualify.

Pet Owners who are currently struggling financially are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to pre-apply.

Please note that the processing time for these requests can take up to 2-3 weeks.

If You Are Currently Experiencing a Veterinary Emergency...
If you are currently experiencing a medical emergency with your pet, and are unable to provide the required funding, please print and complete an application immediately and fax it to 856-245-7840.

After faxing your completed application, please contact the Prince Chunk Foundation so we can begin working on your request immediately. Please be sure to check our “Maximum Family Income Eligibility” Document to ensure you qualify.

Low-cost vaccines available for your cat, dog

"The Cumberland County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has been offering low-cost spaying and neutering for many years, and this week we will be offering our first vaccine clinic as well.

"THIS IS NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR REGULAR VET CARE! The clinic will provide distemper, rabies and bordatella shots for a reduced rate. We also have Frontline Plus and microchipping available at very affordable rates. Please keep in mind that no medical issues will be diagnosed or treated; this is strictly a shot clinic.

"We sincerely hope to make this service available to you on a regular basis.
This is a win--win-win situation; you get a break for your budget, the shelter generates a little income and the animals receive necessary care.

"If you come:

"Have your dog properly collared and leashed.

"Extra parking is available behind the shelter. Don't get discouraged if you see a long line; it should move quickly.

"Please keep your fingers crossed that the weather will cool off a little Friday!

"Vaccine clinic: The low-cost vaccine-only clinic is 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday (July 30) at the CCSPCA shelter, 1244 N. Delsea Drive, Vineland. The cost of services is as follows: rabies, $15 (must bring proof of previous rabies to receive a three-year vaccination); dog or cat distemper, $15; dog bordatella, $15."

North Jersey.com August 26, 2010

"Pets can give homeless and low-income individuals needed stability and unconditional love, said George Cameron, of Cameron Animal Hospital on Bloomfield Avenue.

"It can also heighten their sense of responsibility after the loss of a home or job, he said.

""Pets are sometimes the only thing that these poor souls have," Cameron said.

"About once a month, his practice treats pets belonging to homeless or low-income individuals at no charge. "You can't turn the pet away and leave them in distress," Cameron said."


If you are in this area and need veterinary care for your pet, please contact the animal hospital for more information.
