Animal Welfare Association's mission is to eliminate animal suffering, promote the importance of the human-animal bond and improve the role of animals in the well-being of people.
Animal Welfare Association (AWA), a private, non-profit, operates the oldest and largest low-cost spay/neuter clinic, adoption center and no-kill animal shelter in South Jersey. We do not receive funds from the government or national groups. We rely upon local donations to fund our life-saving programs. Through a variety of innovative programs including adoptions, veterinary services, pet therapy, trap-neuter-return and humane education, we strive to ensure that animal companionship is accessible to all.
