New Jersey Animal Population Control

The New Jersey Department of Health supports several animal population control programs to prevent animal overpopulation and to protect human health. These include programs that promote the spay/neutering of animals.

You may be eligible to have your pet spayed or neutered at a discounted price of $10 or $20. Visit the New Jersey Veterinary Public Health webpage to see if you qualify.

If you qualify, this is the lowest-cost option for spay/neuter surgery for your pet and we suggest you use this service as your first choice. Please contact People for Animals to schedule an appointment.

 

Oasis Animal Sanctuary

The Oasis Animal Sanctuary administers a sterilization assistance program. Individual residents receive the financial assistance needed to have their pet(s) sterilized. Animals that are eligible for the program are those owned by New Jersey residents or those in managed feral cat colonies. Eligible pet owners must be at least 18 years old and have a taxable income of $40,000 or less. Elderly residents who no longer file tax returns and simply prove they are on Social Security are automatically approved. For more information, visit the Oasis Animal Sanctuary website.

IMPORTANT: Owners of pet cats should bring an e-collar, also know as “the cone of shame” with their pet at drop off. Your pet MUST wear an e-collar for seven days after surgery. The cone prevents your pet from licking and biting the incision and helps prevent infection. E-collars can be purchased at most pet stores or online. Here are some options for small cats. Here are options for cats of all sizes.

SUPER IMPORTANT: If a pet owner does not follow post-surgery guidelines for using an e-collar, the owner is responsible for costs related to post-surgery complications, including exams, medicines, additional surgery, etc.

Recommendation: A wellness exam is recommended for pet cats before surgery involving anesthesia. You can request a wellness exam before surgery for an additional $35.
