MISSION STATEMENT: The Animal Orphanage is a non-profit animal shelter whose mission is to rescue unwanted and neglected cats and dogs in parts of the South Jersey area. We work hard to provide housing and medical attention to these homeless animals and place them in loving homes. We are private and operate solely on what we raise through the shelter. There is no county or state money that is allocated to help keep us open. Over 2000 animals are adopted from our shelter each year.
