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.

Those adopting pets from the West Jersey Volunteers for Animals are required 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, and training.
*Provide appropriate exercise, 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 or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
