Improving the quality of life for animal companions

APLNJ is proud to be able to offer our assistance. However, as you might imagine, the needs far outweigh the means.

We ask that you make a generous tax-deductible contribution to this program. Every dollar donated will be used exclusively for the veterinary care of animals in need - no administrative or overhead expenses. Literally, your donation will be saving lives.

To make a donation by mail, simply send a check, payable to APLNJ, to APLNJ, PO Box 174, Englishtown, NJ 07726. Be sure to mark VBAP in the check's memo.

Imagine watching your four-legged family member needlessly suffer because the veterinary care for her was simply beyond your family's means.

Or, losing your trusted friend because he was just diagnosed with diabetes and your social security check covers only basic needs for the both of you.

Or even being forced to give up or euthanize your beloved companion when facing an emergency surgery that you simply don't have the money to cover.

Sadly, these are the situations people find themselves in everyday, especially in these tough times—facing decisions to give up their animal or worse, end their animal's life, because of a lack of money.

In 1990, Animal Protection League of NJ created the Veterinary Bill Assistance Program to help give animals the medical care they need and deserve and help keep them with their human family. Since then, APLNJ has helped animals such as Zack the horse who needed to have his eye removed because of extreme neglect, Sassy the dog with a heart condition, Greta the cat with her diabetes and hundreds more.

We'd like you to meet just four of the faces of our Veterinary Bill Assistance Program

Meet Auto. We were contacted by Auto’s dad who told us that his poor Auto was in so much pain, but he couldn't get a veterinarian to accept payments for the knee surgery he badly needed. APLNJ intervened, set him up with one of the veterinarians we work with and helped get Auto back to his fun-loving goofy self!

Meet Focus. Finding warmth wherever she could, Focus, a neighborhood stray, was sleeping under a car hood when the car was started. Miraculously she survived, but a pin and plate were needed to repair her hip and leg. Again, APLNJ was there!

Meet Morris. This 18-year-old man had a simple bladder infection. However, being on social security and caring for two other rescued cats, the routine office visit, urinalysis and medication were stretching the limits of his Mom’s monthly check. APLNJ stepped in and got Morris the care he needed!

Meet Sam. Tragically, Sam was hit by a car. He spent days in intensive care and a week in the hospital. Sam eventually pulled through, but one leg could not be saved. His family spent thousands of dollars to save his life, taking out Care Credit and seeking assistance from numerous organizations. APLNJ was one of them. Thanks in part to our help, Sam is alive today and happy, running around on three legs!
