The “Can’t Buy Me Love” program waives adoption fees for animals with certain age, health or behavior challenges that make it more difficult to find homes.

Animals in this program have been at the Animal Welfare Association’s Adoption Center in Voorhees for a higher-than-average time due to these challenges. Can’t Buy Me Love allows adopters to save the adoption fees and devote more resources to training, medical care and other expenses common for a pet’s transition into a new home.

Can't Buy Me Love Eligibility

Animals of any age or species are eligible for the Can’t Buy Me Love program.

AWA’s Adoption and Medical staff will determine which animals are eligible for the program based on criteria including:

  • Length of stay at AWA Adoption Center
  • Medical conditions/ history
  • Age
  • And more

To learn more about the program and any animals you are interested in that qualify, please contact our Adoption Center staff:

Hello, my name is Puddy and I'm a big bundle of energy! At only 7 months old, I'm still full of that kitten-like wonder and would do well in a home that can keep me active and stimulated; I love to play! I'm also FIV+, which means that my immune system has to work harder, but I can live a completely normal life just like any other cat!

I'm Frost, and I'd like to think I'm the cutest of the AWA sewer cats, if I do say so myself. I've been in foster care while I wait for a home because I love the extra attention. Which is why I'm hopeful the rest of my siblings and I get a forever home soon!

Hi, my name's Haribo and it fits me because I'm as sweet as any gummy bear and just as petite, too! I can be a bit shy when first meeting new people, but it doesn't take very long at all for me to come around. I'm still pretty young at only 2 years old, so even though I'm happy and comfortable at the AWA, a real home I can spend the rest of my life in is my dream!

Hi, I'm Romulus! I'm very handsome and would love to find my own loving family.  Enjoying a long nap in the sun would be so much better in my own home.
