Animal Welfare Association is one of the busiest animal shelters in the region. But because the current 5,000 sq. ft. building is both too small and deteriorating, it is unable to fully serve the pets and people of our region.
Built in 1966, the shelter building has admirably done its job. However, AWA’s day-to-day sheltering operations are now constantly impeded by space shortages, an inefficient layout, and deteriorating building conditions.
It’s time for AWA to have a fresh start so that it can continue to achieve its vision to create “A Place Where Happiness Begins” by helping to create a compassionate community, by serving as a resource for pet lovers/pet owners in need, and by envisioning achieving zero tolerance for companion animals needlessly suffering and dying in our South Jersey community.
