“West Jersey Volunteers for Animals (WJVA) is a non-profit 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. In four short years, the group dramatically decreased euthanasia at the shelter to an average of 5 dogs and 50 domesticated cats per year (down from 300 dogs and 400 cats). We also substantially increased medical care at the shelter, spending many thousand dollars annually to save sick and injured animals that would otherwise be euthanized. We provided hundreds of vaccines and spay/neuter operations to prevent sickness and overpopulation. We gave shelter animals exercise and affection every day. We developed events and publicity materials to promote animal adoptions. We are very gratified that our work, along with generous public support, helped save over 700 orphaned animals each year for the past eight years. ”
