About Our Rescue Group:

West Jersey Volunteers for Animals (WJVA) is a non-profit group formed in 1998 by four volunteers determined to improve life quality 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 donations and other donations are all
we use to pay for our medical and boarding expenses. We spend 10's of 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. And 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 use all of these fantastic resources to carry on our work on behalf of homeless animals.

Come Meet our Pets:

We have Meet and Greets with our adoptable dogs at the following locations:

Pet Smart, Moorestown,

Our Adoption Process:

We require an adoption application to be filled out, a meet and greet with the whole family with the dog, and
also any dogs they have. We also do a home visit when we are ready to finalize the adoption. We feel this
is a good way for the adopter and us to see the dog in their new environment, and also gives us the chance
to go over with the adopter things that will make for a
smooth transition for both the dog and them.

Our fees range from 150.00 for dogs over 9yr. old.,
225.00 for 7months to 8yr, and 250.00 for pups 6mon.and under.
Those adopting pets from the West Jersey Volunteers for Animals are expected to:

*Provide a loving home for the animal during its lifetime.
*Treat the animal with respect, affection and as a member of the family.
*Provide indoor living accommodations.
*Provide annual veterinary examinations and treat any ailments, disease or injury in a timely manner.
*Provide the animal with proper food, water, medical care and training.
*Provide appropriate exercise, training, toys, companionship, mental stimulation and socialization with other animals.
*Keep identification tags on the animal at all times.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
