The following programs are run by People for Animals:

Pet Rescue and Adoption Program

This Program, staffed by volunteers, provides medical care, food and shelter to rescued, stray and abandoned animals until permanent, loving homes can be found.

PFA Building

Adoption Days

Are held every other week at the Bridgewater PetsMart and at a variety of other locations and events throughout the year.

Although PFA’s Waggin’ Wagon generally is used to transport dogs to adoption events it has been used to transport animals from the Katrina disaster area, and currently in-state hoarder and emergency situations.

Low Cost Wellness Services

This clinic provides affordable basic preventative care for companion pets. We offer low-cost core vaccines, heartworm, lyme, Feline Leukemia and FIV testing. Fecal analysis and deworming. Click for more Wellness Services details, days and hours.

Humane Education

Presentations are given by speakers at local libraries, schools and events. Including CPR & First Aid classes and through the distribution of literature which promotes responsible pet ownership, including kindness to animals and the importance of spaying and neutering.

For more than 5 years PFA has worked with local area Girl Scout troops and specialized schools for mentally challenged children and adults.

Foster Homes

Our program for animals that need to be medically treated and healthy animals that are too young before going to adoption.

Low Cost Spay Neuter Clinic

Over 17,000 spay and neuter surgeries are performed in the clinic yearly, thus preventing the birth of thousands of unwanted dogs and cats.

Spay Shuttle

Transportation to and from our Spay/Neuter Clinics for those who are not able or have no means of transport. Pick up is at local shelters and other coordinated various sites.


Distributed throughout the year informing readers of PFA fundraisers, activities, animals awaiting adoption and other animal related issues.


There are several fundraisers held throughout the year that appeal to a wide range of interests. Proceeds are used for all PFA’s programs, not just rescue and adoption.
