The mission of People for Animals, Inc. is to prevent animal suffering through affordable essential healthcare public
policy advocacy, and community programs.
A healthy, happy life for every animal.
People for Animals, Inc. was founded in 1980 to provide low cost-high volume spay/neuter services in New Jersey. Since
then we have become the leading provider of spay/neuter services with clinics in Hillside, Robbinsville, and Clayton with
11 veterinarians on staff. PFA provides free spay shuttle service to our clinics and operate a mobile spay station to
ensure that we can reach every shelter, rescue group, and owner in NJ.
Our key service to the public and animal welfare groups is affordable, routine pet care which is aimed at specifically
driving more animals to early spay/neuter procedures to prevent accidental pregnancies, make pet ownership more
affordable, and reducing the numbers of homeless animals in local shelters.
We also operate a renowned teaching program in partnership with the University of Pennsylvania, Cornell University,
and Tufts University offering externship opportunities to veterinary students in high volume spay/neuter and serving
low-income pet owners. Our surgeons’ proficiency in utilizing the latest techniques, with smaller incisions, and shorter
anesthesia time reduce the pain for our patients and significantly speed up the recovery process.
We are proud to be the exclusive administrator the New Jersey component of SPAYUSA’s national program: Spay/NJ.
This toll-free referral hotline assists NJ residents to find low cost/spay neuter operations in their area. Hundreds of cats
and dogs in NJ are altered through our network of private veterinarians; spay/neuter specialty clinics and Trap-Neuter-
Return (TNR) programs every year.
PFA conducts TNR training workshops regularly at each clinic and offers these workshops in the field for interested
organizations that wish to promote TNR in their communities. Additionally, we serve as a sponsor in municipalities that
require oversight of their humane feral cat population control programs.
Through our Kitty Academy employees and volunteers provide medical care, vaccinations, and socialization to prepare
adoptable kittens and friendly adult cats that are removed from colonies. We transport graduates of our Kitty Academy
to one of our partner shelters in New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, and Maine.
PFA offers expert consultation to promote humane public policy to elected officials at every level of government. We
have successfully advocated for Humane Feral Cat Population Control (TNR) in many NJ municipalities. We believe
strongly in forming partnerships and fostering cooperative relationships with other animal welfare groups in the state. It
is critical for animal welfare groups to find the common ground on which we can combine our resources to accomplish
our mutual goals.
