South Jersey Rescue is a non-profit organization dedicated to finding safe, loving forever homes for our furry friends in need. South Jersey Rescue supports all animals in need, regardless of age or medical needs.

Over the last year, South Jersey Rescue has stepped up to intake several pets that have been surrendered by their owners due to age, medical needs and housing situations. The overwhelming need to assist these pets has been a significant financial burden on our rescue making the need to raise funds urgent.

South Jersey Rescue is made of a core group of volunteers that work from their own homes as well as foster homes so every dollar goes directly to the animals we service. Funds raised are used to pay veterinarian bills, transportation costs to get dogs from high kill shelters to our rescue, spay and neuter costs, medication and food.

There is space available for vendor participation. This is the perfect opportunity to showcase your business.
