Wish List: West Jersey Volunteers for Animals (NJ)
West Jersey Volunteers for Animals (WJVA) is an all-volunteer group formed in 1998 by four volunteers determined to improve life quality, medical care, and adoption rates for the 2,200 animals that passed through West Jersey Animal Shelter each year.
The group dramatically decreased euthanasia rates at the shelter. Their work, along with generous public support, helped save over 700 orphaned animals each year for the past eight years. They also substantially increased medical care at the shelter, spending thousands of dollars annually to save sick and injured animals that would otherwise be euthanized. We provided vaccinations, spaying and neutering. They also provided shelter animals daily exercise and affection and organized events and promoted animal adoptions.
