About Our Rescue Group:West Jersey Volunteers for Animals (WJVA) is a non-profit group formed in 1998 by four volunteers determined to improve quality of life and medical care for homeless animals. We do not have a facility and rely on foster homes and boarding kennels to house the dogs we rescue from crowded shelters. Our adoption fees and donations are used to pay for our medical and boarding expenses. We spend thousands of dollars every year on saving homeless animals.
Our group is all volunteers with years of experience providing homeless animals with affection, exercise, medical care, foster homes, training, and publicity. During the last eight years, our group gained a great deal of wonderful contacts and support in the areas of general animal care, veterinary care, pet grooming and boarding, training, resolution of pet behavior problems, food donations, and fundraising. We are dedicated to continue to build our community partnerships to carry on our work on behalf of homeless animals.

Our Adoption Process:We require an adoption application to be filled out, a meet and greet with the whole family including any pets. We also do a home visit when we are ready to finalize the adoption. The home visit provides an opportunity for the adopter to see the dog in their new environment, and allows us
to review recommendations for a smooth transition for the dog and family.
Our adoption fees range from $150.00 for dogs 9 years and older, $225.00 for dogs 7 months to 8 years old, and $250.00 for puppies 6 months and under.
Adoption fees cover spay/neuter, vaccinations, and microchip identification.

*Provide a loving home for the animal during its lifetime.
