Our mission is to save the lives of homeless animals and promote their adoption by working with the county shelter and community to reach our no-kill vision by 2025. Community/feral cats remain one of the biggest reasons our community hasn't been able to achieve no-kill numbers (a save rate of 90% or higher).

For Giving Tuesday, you can help support our Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program for community cats. The Denton Foundation and another generous donor have agreed to match, dollar for dollar, donations up to $5,000.

Fall has arrived, bringing with it football and other team sports. Just like teams need a game plan to win, shelter dogs must learn the right “plays” to be on "Team Homeward Bound." Will you help us turn shelter "underdogs" into winners? We'll do the coaching if you help us on the sidelines.

Poor or lack of training hinders shelter dogs' adoptability and can result in returned adoptions. A generous donor has given $3,000 to get our training program off the ground. With your support, the Friends of Burlington County Animal Shelter (Friends) hopes to match that donation. You donate and your impact is doubled.

If you're still working from home, now is a great time to add a new furry face to your family.

From Sept. 8-Oct. 11, the Friends of BCAS are sponsoring an adoption promotion. Approved adopters can take home any adult cat at no cost and any pittie mix can be adopted for only $25 -- a substantial savings.

So visit the Burlington County Animal Shelter and find your new best friend!
