Animal Welfare Association's mission is to eliminate
animal suffering, promote the importance of the human-animal bond, & improve the role of animals in the well-being of people.

AWA's vision is to create a compassionate community, by serving as a resource for pet lovers/pet owners in need, & by envisioning achieving zero tolerance for companion animals needlessly suffering and dying in our South Jersey community.

AWA successfully provides traditional animal sheltering, pet retention counseling, adoptions, foster care, pet behavioral rehabilitation/training & veterinary care.

However, AWA has always been more than a typical animal shelter. It has been dedicated to improving the lives of pets & people through educational campaigns, direct action, & strategic programming with an emphasis on special needs groups.
