About Us

Our History

Carol Olea

Director of Grants

Board Secretary

Around the year 2003, over 100,000 pets in New Jersey were receiving less than the adequate medical care they needed and all too often euthanasia was the chosen alternative.

Since we started, Save U.S. Pets Foundation has reached out to the community at large by raising funds and giving grants to help give these pets a chance at a full life.

Keeping families together is what it's all about.

Together we can all make a huge difference !
