The PetPALS Mission…
PetPALS recognizes the importance of pets in the lives of many individuals, especially those faced with a serious illness. We strive to ensure animal companionship for as long as practically possible. Services offered to clients provision of pet supplies with food, free or subsidized veterinary care, grooming and short-term foster care to current clients (only if the availability of a volunteer and/or foster home exists). If a client is does not have transportation PetPALS will provide transportation to and from veterinary and grooming appointments for the animal only.
PetPALS acts as a referral network and can provide health and educational information, including “safe pet” guidelines to owners. We also offer a speakers bureau about our programs and issues we are concerned with.
Long-Term Planning and assistance is offered to insure for continuous pet care and legal resources and referrals for wills and power-of-attorney documents.

PetPALS’ services are limited based on established policies, including a geographic limitation restricting services to Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Salem counties.
