AWA brings free pet food, free and low cost veterinary care, and pet microchips directly to residents in Camden City. Many pet owners in Camden do not have access to affordable vet care or pet supplies. AWA's staff and veterinarian bring our mobile clinic and offer residents a chance to have their pet examined as well as schedule spay/neuter surgery appointments. This event is part of AWA's "Vets on Wheels" program, generously supported by the Camden County Board of Freeholders.


Camden Pet Care Day, October 1st, 2016: AWA helped 60 cats and 115 dogs. 
We gave away:

  • 800 lbs of pet food
  • 50 microchips
  • 60 doses of flea/tick prevention

History
AWA held its first Camden Pet Care Day on Saturday, November 14, 2015. We brought our mobile clinic to microchip pets as well as to offer an "Ask the Vet" session. We also had our behavior coordinator on hand so people could "Ask the Trainer" their pet behavior questions. We also donated food and supplies to needy pets. Camden Pet Care Day is another way in which AWA brings necessary pet care into Camden City. 

Thank you to Camden County Board of Freeholders, PetSmart Charities, and Bissell Pet Foundation for supporting our outreach programs in Camden.
