People For Animals.

24 Oct

People For Animals is a low-cost spay and neuter clinic located in Hillside, NJ. This non for profit has been serving the community since 1980, helping people from all walks of life, protect and vaccinate their furry friends. I personally think People For Animals is the bomb, I had the pleasure of using their services last month on this feral kitten who has since taken up residency in my barn, I mean home ๐Ÿ˜‰

The cost of spay and neuter is so low at People For Animals I told them to keep the change as a donation. Something like $65 bucks to spay this kitten. That is super cheap, I have paid double that to neuter my dogs. They also do rabies shots and offer flea and tick treatments. You drop your pet in the morning and pick them up after work, when you go back to pick them up the kind people who work at People For Animals give you the 411 on what your dog/cat just went through, how long the recovery will be and what to do and not do while your pet is recovering. Everyone there was so nice and helpful, the people who work there seemed as if they loved their jobs and bear in mind this is not a low stress job. People come in with feral cats that are wild and have never been handled by humans, sick and abused animals and animals that need to be adopted. Some of the stories I was told were heartbreaking but the good people at this facility are committed to their jobs and it shows.

People For Animals is one of the busiest spay and neuter clinics in the country and operates strictly off donations. All donations are tax-deductible and you know that whatever you donate goes right into keeping People For Animals running. Low cost spay and neuter clinics are so imperative in the fight against animal control and homelessness.ย  Many of the people who dropped off cats to be spayed and neutered had taken these cats in off the street. In fact most of us had and it was all of our first experiences with cats period, better yet little street cats. While we were there we got to talk about how these little fur balls came into our lives and to see how much these people loved their little unexpected bundles of fur made me so happy ๐Ÿ™‚

My overall experience at People For Animals was so positive, I highly recommend them for anyone who is looking for a low-cost spay and neuter. The kindest thing you can do is spay and neuter, stop unwanted animals from living horrible lives in the streets or ending up at some horrible kill shelter on death row.

At the end of the day, animals are at our mercy, do the right thing.

    Thank you so much for today’s commentary. Unwanted litters, both domestic and feral, make up more than 60% of the animals in our care at The Shepherd’s Flock. Neutering your pet is not your option. It is your obligation. Furthermore, it is necessary for your animals health. More than 50% of the adult, un-spayed females in our care have come to us with with cancer of one or more reproductive organs. People for Animals is a safe and clean facility that will save your pet’s life. It is primarily for people and organizations with financial constraints, so if you can afford to see your veterinarian for neutering services, please do so. Love this blog!

      This is all makes me so sad, all of what you mention is so preventable. There is a huge feral colony by my house and it just breaks my heart. They are well cared for by the neighborhood but its a tough life no animal should have to live. Now that it is getting cold, some of the kittens will not make it. I wish I could trap them all but some are just too wild and too crafty for my (lack of) experience level. Thank you for reading Stacy, it means a lot. I hope all of your rescued fur balls are doing well ๐Ÿ˜‰

    You could definitely see your skills in the work you write. The sector hopes for even more passionate writers like you who are not afraid to say how they believe. At all times follow your heart.
