Every Dollar can Make a difference

AWA’s mission is to eliminate animal suffering, promote the importance of the human-animal bond and improve the role of animals in the well-being of people.

AWA’s Programs

AWA has the most comprehensive programs of any pet adoption and education center in the region. Pet services such as adoptions, behavioral training, and pet food pantry are all done on-site at AWA. Educational programs such as our P.A.W.S. volunteer programs, Tales with Tails children’s reading program, and Art of Animals exhibits provides the South-Jersey community with local humane education.
