Make a difference in your community
As South Jersey’s oldest and larget no-kill animal shelter, low-cost pet clinic and adoption center, Animal Welfare Association has been making an impact with help from the community for 75 years. We don’t receive government funding, so we rely upon local donations to fund or lifesaving programs.
Each year we save thousands of pets’ lives, and with your help AWA will continue growing to save more animals and serve our community with affordable pet healthcare, education programs and more.
