Just fifteen years ago, 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.

For the past fifteen years, Save U.S. Pets Foundation has reached out to the community at large 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 !
