Additional Information

The Animal Welfare Association (AWA) is hosting their first ever Mega Adoption Event sponsored by PetSmart Charities. About a dozen local shelters and rescues will be coming together to join AWA in sharing the same goal, to find homes for 250 homeless pets in one weekend! There will be nearly 350 animals available for adoption throughout the weekend.

The event will be October 6th from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and October 7th from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Moorestown PetSmart Store: 1331 Nixon Drive Moorestown, NJ.  Click here for directions to PetSmart. The theme of the event is Race to the Right House based off of the election year.  It will be the RePUPlicans vs DemoCATs putting an end to the age old question of which is the better pet.  People can cast their vote to tell us if they are cat person or a dog person.

Ways to help:

Volunteer- If you are interested in volunteering, even just once for this event, contact Nicole at volunteers@awanj.org for information.  People interested in volunteering for only this event would not need to go through our regular orientation process. We will need at least 20 volunteers per shift to make our event successful. Shifts will last 4 hours at a time.

Fostering -Help us get ready for the event by fostering an animal for 1-2 weeks prior to the event.  E-mail Jean at fostercare@awanj.org for more information on how you can help by fostering one time.
