People For Animals (PFA), located in Hillside, is offering spay and neuter surgeries for pets under 6-months-old for the month of June. PFA was involved in presenting workshops regarding TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) which helped lead to Roselle Park becoming the first municipality in Union County to have a TNR Ordinance when it was passed last month. Now that it is legal to care for feral cats in the borough, one of the regulations stipulates that feral cats who are captured need to be spayed or neutered in order to control feline population.
The “Precious, Not Parents” campaign is sponsored by PetSmart Charities® provides almost $600,000 to spay/neuter clinics to fund affordable, high-quality spay and neuter surgeries for more than 12,000 puppies and kittens across the nation during the month of June. Kittens and puppies can get pregnant as young as 4 and 5 months old. PetSmart Charities, Inc. is a nonprofit animal welfare organization that saves the lives of homeless pets and, according to their information, grants more money to directly help pets in need than any other animal welfare group in North America, with a focus on funding spay/neuter services that help communities solve pet overpopulation. PetSmart Charities is a 501(c)(3) organization, separate from PetSmart, Inc.
