More Than a Shelter,
A Community

AWA is committed to saving the lives of animals who need it most and serving the community through low-cost veterinary services, behavioral training, community outreach programs and education.

Saving Lives. Together

AWA is the oldest and largest no-kill animal shelter in South Jersey and your place to adopt a dog, cat, or small animal to make your family whole.

By adopting a pet at Animal Welfare Association you do more than just give 1 animal their second chance. You help to save more and more lives by supporting the rescue and best-in-class care of homeless pets who need it the most.
