The MISSION of Animal Alliance:
Animal Alliance is a 501(c)3 nonprofit charitable organization which finds euthanasia to be an unacceptable fate for adoptable animals in shelters, who will lose their life due to pet overpopulation. Animal Alliance places animals removed from the shelters into temporary foster care where they are rehabilitated, spayed/neutered, restored to health, and readied for a speedy adoption. Through its Planned Pethood Low Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic, Animal Alliance offers spay/neuter community outreach services to substantially reduce pet overpopulation.

Animal Alliance removes animals in immediate danger of euthanasia from local area shelters and does not believe in importing animals from distant states into New Jersey, where 38,000 impounded animals were euthanized last year alone. AT any given time, Animal Alliance has approximately 55 dogs and 25 cats in foster care awaiting adoption.

Animal Alliance has a longstanding relationship with Montgomery Township Animal Control, and removes all dogs impounded there. Animal Alliance also
accepts animals from West Windsor‐Plainsboro, Hopewell Township, Trenton, and Philadelphia Animal Control facilities, and occasional owner surrenders.

Animal Alliance’s Planned Pethood Clinic alters approximately 2,000 animals each year, and provides wellness services to an additional 400 animals annually. Adoptions range from 350 ‐ 500 animals each year, with a cumulative total to date of 4,500 animals adopted.
