Providing supplemental pet food and preventive veterinary care to pets in need.

Keeping pets at your side, one day at a time.

We offer low- or no-cost services to qualifying clients, including delivering supplemental pet food and supplies, medicines, preventive veterinary care and more to keep animals happy and healthy and with their families for life.

Pets are an important part of our emotional support network. Our pets are a source of warmth, trust and unconditional love, asking for very little in return. The terminally ill and elderly face many changes in their lives. They experience loss of health, while some lose financial stability, employment and even friends. They may also experience difficulty in maintaining their pets because of the financial and physical care challenges that sometimes result from their conditions. In these times, the companionship of their pets offers real emotional and psychological benefits.

PetPALS is unable to support all applications, and cannot assist with new applications for pets in emergency need of veterinary assistance. Please visit our Resources page for potential new resources for you.


PetPALS extends our limited resources to qualifying candidates only. To qualify you should meet the following criteria:

  • All clients MUST reside in Burlington, Camden or Gloucester counties in New Jersey.

  • Clients must be low-income, independent living seniors, disabled, chronically ill or terminally ill pet owners. Prospective clients must be prepared to provide proof of total household income before being accepted into the program, and annually to maintain benefits.

  • All clients must have had their pet for more than six months, and the pet must be altered. (If you need assistance getting your pet altered, we can refer you to free or low-cost surgeries offered in each county we serve.)

  • PetPALS is unable to assist with new applications for assistance with pets who have significant health issues or emergency veterinary care needs. If you need help paying veterinary bills, check out Care Credit at

If you have an emergency situation or require help outside our service area, we have assembled a brief list of resources available in New Jersey. Please visit our Resources page for more information.
