PetPALS offers a unique opportunity for all friends of animals to provide a basic, caring service to neighbors living with serious or terminal illnesses and their beloved animal companions, whether they be dogs, cats, birds, fish; large or small, domesticated or not. Every year, PetPALS of Southern New Jersey puts on multiple events, including fundraisers, tabling at community events, and speakers forums to help support our important work. It takes a village to bring our mission forward, and we need your help.
Prospective volunteers are trained for service through an orientation program that encourages a one-on-one client relationship.
Partner/veterinarians provide routine and emergency services at reduced rates to the organization for the benefit of our clients. More complex medical care is provided at the discretion of PetPALS.
Please take a look at the services and events we offer and let us know what you are most interested in assisting with, and how you think you can best help us.
PetPALS holds an annual fundraiser, Lucky Paws, in mid-March. We need help with event setup, management, clean up, vendor recruitment and more.
PetPALS has a table at pet and community events throughout the spring, summer and fall. We need help with tabling, handing out materials and engaging the community.
Throughout the year, representatives from PetPALS reach out and educate the community about our mission and the importance of keeping your pets healthy. We need help with tabling at these events.
BECOME A PAL
Pets play an important role in helping the sick and elderly stay healthy and happy. Our important work is to keep our clients' pets healthy and with them for as long as possible.
If you have a love of animals and a passion for our mission, you might be interested in becoming a PAL. Our PALs are assigned a client and help them care for their pets. This usually requires just a few hours a month to travel to the client, delivering food and supplies. Some clients are disabled and need help cleaning a litter box or other minor pet care duties. Our PALs are the lifeline we need to let us know if the pet needs medical attention, is receiving the food and exercise they need, and provides our clients compassionate companionship.
PALs are required to undergo a training session, held multiple times throughout the year. If you are interested in becoming a PAL, contact Peter Setaro, Executive Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
