The Spay Shuttle is a service offered by People for Animals that provides round-trip transportation for cats and dogs for same-day spay/neuter surgery at one of our clinics. It is available to individuals, shelters, and rescues. The Spay Shuttle is by appointment only. On the morning of your appointment, we meet you outside the pick-up location you select and transport your companion animal to our clinic. In the afternoon, after your companion animal’s surgery has been completed and he or she is fully recovered from anesthesia, the Spay Shuttle brings him or her back to you at the same location.
Where does the Spay Shuttle pick up animals and when?
The Spay Shuttle picks up animals for spay/neuter surgery at Petco/Petland stores throughout New Jersey as well as local stores. For a list of locations and available dates click here
How much does it cost to use the SPAY SHUTTLE?

• Wellness care such as vaccinations, testing, microchip insertion, nail trims, and topical flea/tick preventative. Dog deciduous teeth removal – $50
• Deciduous teeth are baby teeth that have not fallen out on their own after the adult teeth have fully erupted. A dog’s adult teeth are typically fully grown by the time they are 6 months of age but may take longer depending on the dog. If not removed, deciduous teeth can cause a build up of tartar and cause dental issues.
• If your dog is over 2 years of age, it is recommended you visit a Full Service Vet for deciduous teeth extraction. Dog dewclaw removal – $25
• Dewclaws are extra claws located above the paw around the wrist area. These claws do not get naturally filed down as the claws on the paws do. These claws can get caught on furniture causing discomfort and in some cases can be torn off. If the nails are not trimmed often, they are prone to curling in and piercing the skin causing discomfort.
• Due to equipment limitations, we are only able to remove dewclaws attached by skin. Dewclaws attached by bone will need to be removed by a Full Service Vet. Umbilical hernia repair – $35
• Umbilical hernias appear as a bulge in a pet’s umbilical area just below the ribcage. When the umbilical ring of a puppy or kitten does not close properly after birth, it may cause a buildup of fat or organs in the area. A reducible hernia is typically abdominal lining or fat, which may not cause discomfort. A non-reducible hernia is when one or more organs are bulging out from the umbilicus which usually causes discomfort and may cause issues later.

• When your pet receives a new vaccination, it is important to complete the booster series. Most vaccinations are part of a booster series that must be completed in order to properly boost your pet’s immune system to fight against a particular disease.

If your pet is found, it can be scanned by standard pet scanner to pull up your pet’s unique code. This code can be used to contact Home Again so that you may be contacted about your pet’s location. This is not a tracking device.
• If you have a cat or a smaller dog, it is recommended to receive a microchip at the time of the spay/neuter because the needle is larger than a regular needle. Nail Trim
• Your pet should have regular nail trims to ensure your pet’s nails do not overgrow. Overgrowth of nails can cause extreme discomfort. If left uncut for too long, the nails may start to curl and pierce the pads of their paws.
• If you have a new kitten or puppy, start cutting the tips of their nails as a part of their grooming routine so that they are not afraid to have their nails cut later in life.
