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:
Cutters Mill Pet Supply Store, Cherry Hill, Mt Laurel
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.
