Community Cat Spay/Neuter Subsidy

APLNJ is pleased to announce that thanks to very generous donors, we currently have funds available to help defray the cost of sterilization for outdoor community cats. Caregivers seeking subsidies need to be a (free) member of our Feral Friends of NJ yahoo group that connects members across the state of NJ for sharing of information and resources – a great networking tool!

Pedals Captured a Nation

To memorialize all the bears who have been victims of the NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife's lethal "management" and to help fund our continuing bear protection work, we are selling these exclusive charms. The charm features Pedals, whose killing sparked the same outrage that was felt after Cecil the lion was killed. To read more and order yours, click here.

NJDFW Killing Calendar

Thanks to our wonderful volunteer, Thea, APLNJ has a comprehensive list of the species who are hunted and trapped in New Jersey, the days of the killing, type of weapons allowed and the number of animals killed. For 2016-2017 the number of reported hunted animals is 530,377. Click here for the calendar.

And the Circus Bans Keep Coming!

APLNJ's political arm - League of Humane Voters of New Jersey - has been working to ban the use of wild animals in circuses in New Jersey. There is a state bill addressing a ban on elephants, but APLNJ is looking to protect ALL wild animals. We're pleased to anounce that there are now bans on the use of wild animals in circuses in Bergen, Cumberland, Hudson and Passaic counties. Additionally, Jersey City banned wild animals in circuses not only on public lands but also on private lands. Want your county or town to be next? Contact us.

Order Your Non-Hunting License and help fund our efforts!

Huh? A NON-hunting license? You bet! It's a great conversation starter. It gives you the opportunity to let others know how wildlife in our state is under the lethal authority of a state agency comprised of hunters/fishers/trappers and that they are backed by the gun and ammunition industries. Support our work fighting for wildlife in New Jersey by ordering your NON-Hunting License TODAY! Learn more about it.
