AWA is a participating shelter in the Camden County adoption program, Pets for Vets. This program is open to active military, reservists or veterans and waives adoption fees on certain pets to share the joy of the human-animal bond between shelter pets and veterans.
This program is a small thank you to Camden County veterans who have selflessly served our country, and will provide the men and women in uniform with companions from the shelter that will supply unconditional love to the most valued members of our society.
The program is open to all active military, reservists or veterans who are residents of Camden County only. Camden County residents meeting the criteria of the program will have their adoption fee waived. The animal shelter will need valid military identification to waive the adoption fee. If you are a veteran and do not have identification, you can go to the office of veteran affairs located on Collier Drive in the Lakeland complex in Gloucester Township.
