Animal Protection League of NJ, established in 1983, is dedicated to eliminating animal suffering and exploitation by promoting respect for animals.

To reach this goal, we (1) educate to increase public awareness of the institutionalized and legalized abuse of animals, (2) encourage activism in our own communities to end the cruelty and (3) promote lifestyle changes to reduce and eliminate the suffering

Issues of concern include testing on animals, the killing of wildlife for management or sport, the fur industry, animals raised as food for human consumption, animals in entertainment, companion animal overpopulation and more.

APLNJ maintains a centrally located administrative office. The director, office staff and dedicated volunteers enable us to keep abreast of and address issues throughout the state in a timely manner.
