Shelter Me: Animal Welfare Association of New Jersey

Maya Richmnond, the Executive Director of AMA says, "By bringing them together and celebrating the joys that animals bring to people."

Stacie DeBolt is the Director of Operations of AWA and she adds,"We have an open non-judgmental adoption policy so we really, really work hard, do a lot of training and educating to make the pet parent a good owner and to make a great match."

"What does this family need to be successful with this pet? What does this pet need in order to be successful in the home?" said Rudolph.

Once these questions are answered, this "no kill" shelter builds a bond with animal and owner that lasts a lifetime.

DeBolt says, "We love to say that we can support you from the moment of adoption all the way through veterinary care 11:32:32 or basic welfare services 11:32:35 to when it is time to say goodbye to your pet."

If you're interested in any of the animals you've seen in the video, you can go to theAWA website.
