I have been taking my animals to PFA for several years. I love the way they have adjusted to COVID by having the online queue and letting people bring their animals in one by one and allowing you to wait in your car. i'm hoping they continue with that method.

I use PFA-Hillside, NJ as my #1 it’s such comfort to get quality basic healthcare for my pets, all the cats I rescue and TNR(trap neuter return). They are feral friendly and my saving grace being able to hold cats there keeps me out trapping!!! Hopefully telling my story doesn’t make it harder to get an appointment.

Our Experience from 2012 to 2017 taking in strays and semi feral off the street for sterilization to the Hillside and Robbinsville clinics adds up to 9 cats. all but one in Hillside was stressful due to short staffing. We’re now in a better financial situation than 4 years ago so we no longer use their services but we want to absolutely recommend PFA. The staff seem to deeply care abt their roles in helping animals and our cats healed well post-op (which isn’t always the case w low cost sterilization clinics). Thx so much to PFA for their work and care. Much love from Mooky and Lolita, Oslo, Milu, and Kosmo :D

PFA has been a leader in low cost spay neuter for years. Their dedication to stop overpopulation is an example of how one organization can make such a big difference. As a rescue / TNR person for (literally) decades, I can state first hand that PFA has halted thousands of feral kittens from being born and suffering on the streets. I cannot heap enough praise on the staff there or their tireless actions for animals.

We would be lost without People for Animals. I am one of many volunteer trappers in the area, doing our best to gather up ALL the community cats to get them healthy and neutered! PFA is essential to this process, because it's only possible because of low cost services: $55 per feral for neuter and vaccinations. They also make pet ownership much more feasible for so many people by offering VERY reasonable basic vet services, which helps people keep their pets and reduces the number abandoned to the streets. That's huge! Additionally they are real partners in that they go beyond neutering to advising on overall condition of each cat, even the feral ones, so that we can take more steps to get them in better shape to live out their lives. I appreciate their expertise and their humanity, especially with all the stress of so many animals coming in each day. Very compassionate and civilized people to deal with.

For about 20 years my wife and I have used PFA for neuter/spay for the feral cats we have TNRed.
If it was not for the work done by the great doctors and fine office staff we couldn't have continued our work on behalf of the many feral colonies we deal with on a regular basis. The work done at PFA is a vital service in the humane treatment of felines.

I've had my dogs spayed/neutered by PFA, and the one thing that is abundantly clear when you walk in is how much everyone there LOVES animals. Not only that, they are truly an affordable location for spays/neuters and vaccinations. My regular vet wanted to charge me almost $1000 to get 2 vaccines for each of my 3 dogs; at PFA, my 3 dogs were able to be fully vaccinated (I think 3 vaccines each) AND each get a 3 month supply of flea/tick meds for under $400. An amazing, affordable place for pet lovers who want to do right by their pets and be responsible pet owners!

People for Animals is a Not For Profit that has been dedicated over a great length of time (over 30 years) to the cause of making veterinary care affordable. For so many years, that focus was the very important issue of affordable spay and neuter surgery. They have expanded there services, their locations, and used mobile surgical units to increase their value and accessibility through central and northern Jew Jersey. Their assistance to many communities doing trap/neuter/release (TNR) work has been outstanding. Just great devotion to the animal cause of affordable assistance for dogs and cats. I know of so many people who have used their services and have been helped by PFA.

I volunteer with a TNR organization and have also been rescueing independently for nearly a decade.
Without PFA's low cost spay/neuter for community cats, doing TNR on any scale would be impossible for most due to the high cost.
I'm extremely thankful for PFA's reduced alteration cost and wellness clinics which have enabled me to rescue, foster, and find homes for cats and kittens that I otherwise could not have. They have made it possible for me to say "yes", instead of"no" to cats in need.
If PFA did not exist, myself and those I work with would never have been able to help nearly as many cats as we have. Through their low cost spay/neuter and wellness services I have seen first hand the tremendous difference PFA has made. They have saved the lives of thousands of cats and prevented the suffering of countless more who would have been born only to know constant hunger, disease, and fear.

People for Animals in Robbinsville, spayed my setter on an emergency basis, when no other clinic could see her for months. Suffering from a failed and very expensive pyometra treatment, they squeezed her in on their next business day. I wanted to breed “Sorrel”, so it was an anxiety ridden decision. Dawn reassured me that this was the proper action to take and having successfully gone through the operation and having my now healthy and enthusiastic dog back, I want to recommend People for Animals for their professionalism, excellent service, and HEART.

It took 4 months to get appt for a feral kitten I found. I was told it was $55. I thought it was great as I'm out of work. When I arrived I was told my cat isn't considered feral as he's been in my house for a year. Was then charged $95. The person I spoke to must have been new as every question I asked he had to go back into building to get answers. The worst part is that they didn't put E collar on my cat while he was under anesthesia. I took 2 people to put collar on once I got home and it still came off. I finally had to use duct tape as he fought so much. Ask that they apply collar before leaving facility!

People for Animals is a wonderful organization, they provide many services from spay/neuter to just shots, and they are great and carrying with animals. The Doctors are very informed and patient ready to answer any questions you might have about your pet. After one of my dogs was neutered I thought there was a problem, so they examined my dog after hours just to make sure he was okay.

I haven’t had a cat in a very long time, and a friend had kittens that were going to be taken to the shelter. I decided to take the plunge and I am now Bella’s mommy! It was the best decision that I made. The turning point in my deciding to keep Bella, was a recommendation from a friend who is a mommy of two kitties and a yorkie, she recommended People for Animals and assured me that her babies have all been there. She also told me about the staff and their love for all of the pets that come through. I was sold!!! I try to donate as much as I can, because of People for Animals, I was able to save my baby Bella!!!!! Bella received all of her shots and was spayed here... I would recommend to all!!!!

I love pfa! I started by getting my animals’ medical treatments there, at a greatly reduced cost from a regular vet. Then I started donating products like food and cat litter and soon I was volunteering to foster tiny kittens several times a year. What a great organization that does good for the community and makes me feel good being a part of it!

When all other veterinary services were charging well over $100 for neutering services, People for Animals offered them for far less. It was easy to make an appointment, and their staff was welcoming and efficient. During the pandemic, they continued to serve needy pets even when other veterinarian offices were closed. We have donated several times because of their community outreach and successful efforts in neutering wild cats throughout Northern New Jersey.

People for Animals is the bridge between good intentions and effective action!

My family has used PFA's spay/neuter and vaccination services (with transport!) for feral, rescue, and pet cats since 2016. It brings us such peace of mind to know that when a new cat comes onto the radar (as they sometimes do), we're able to quickly arrange essential care at both reasonable cost and tremendous convenience.

I am proud to support PFA!

People for Animals were my savior for my feral rescued cats from the streets of Paterson. They provided low cost spay/neuter services as well as clinic well care. Their fees allowed me to rescue nearly 30 feral cats to date. Some were TNR, some were adopted after time in my household. I would not have been able to afford veterinary care for so many cats if it weren’t for People for Animals. This organization is truly a blessing in helping the innocent animals who need our care.

I bring all of my trapped, feral cats to PFA. When I have heard horrow stories of spay and neuter of feral cats at other hospitals, I am thankful for PFA. I have never once had an issue with any cat fixed here. I also brought my two adopted dogs here for their spays and continue with their wellness exams/services. I appreciate that they are affordable and they offer high quality services. They also go above and the beyond- stitching up a massive injury for one feral cat, adding drains, and extra care for next to nothing. It's amazing what they have done.
