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


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.


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 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.
