Community Outreach Programs

At AWA, our mission extends far beyond rescue and adoptions and into local communities. Our growing list of community outreach programs aims to help current pet owners, prospective adopters and more improve not only the life of their companion animals but their own as well.

We hope to make pet ownership more accessible, affordable and fulfilling to all communities including Camden, Philadelphia, and all around the South Jersey area.
