Dogs and Puppies Available for Adoption

Check out all of the dogs up for adoption at Animal Welfare Association. Make sure to look at all their pictures and details, then come to AWA and ask to meet your favorite face to face before taking them home. That's right, you can adopt a dog same day!

All adoptable dogs are located at our no-kill animal shelter in Voorhees, NJ.

Any questions about a particular dog? Contact our shelter team and we'll let you know all about them. Better yet, come on over and see for yourself!

Adopting Dogs and Puppies

All Dogs and Puppies are:

  • Spayed or Neutered
  • Dewormed (often the first in a series of treatments that should be completed by the adoptive family)
  • Treated for fleas
  • Up-to-date with vaccinations (for puppies, the first in a series of vaccinations that should be completed by the adoptive family through their veterinarian)
  • Vaccinated for rabies (if older than four months of age)
  • Microchipped. All dogs and puppies come identified with a unique microchip. Registration is included in the adoption.
  • Adopted after we conduct personalized adoption counseling with you to ensure you're adopting the right dog for your lifestyle.
  • Adopted with the understanding that AWA offers free, unlimited post-adoption behavior support via phone and email

*All dogs must go home wearing a metal buckle collar or martingale collar, a non-retractable leash and an ID tag, which can all be purchased at the AWA ReTail Shop. All adopters must also purchase heartworm preventative at time of adoption.
