April is National Pet First Aid Month
PET SAVERS mission is to improve the lives of companion animals in and around Gloucester County by addressing the root causes of pet over population. We aim to decrease euthanasia rates and increase adoption from shelters and promote responsible pet ownership through education and community outreach.
Our organizational activities are centered around the general welfare of companion animals – i.e. dogs, cats and rabbits, who are or may become homeless. Our activities are conducted primarily in Gloucester County, NJ and secondarily in counties surrounding Gloucester County, NJ. Specifically:
- We seek to reduce euthanasia and increase adoption at animal shelters in our local geography by educating the public about appropriate care and training for companion animals. We will design programs on appropriate care and training and present these programs locally to interested groups at no charge.
- We advocate adoption from local shelters and rescue groups, and will refer the general public to appropriate agencies if they are seeking a pet.
- We advocate spay/neuter programs as the most effective method to reduce pet overpopulation, and will refer the public to appropriate low cost spay/neuter programs in our area. We will develop and implement targeted spay/neuter programs to address pet overpopulation in our area.
- We subscribe to the Humane Society of the United States’ guidelines for adoption, appropriate care and prevention of abuse of companion animals, and will promote these principals in our local geography. All of our programs, activities and materials promote these principles.
