As of Sept. 20, 2015: The shelter has been teetering on 100 percent full for both cats and dogs for the past several weeks. This will likely continue for the next several weeks. Please, please, PLEASE help us find FOSTERS, RESCUES AND ADOPTERS for our many wonderful animals! Help us get through the rest of summer!

The Friends of the Burlington County Animal Shelter are now a partner in the CARS program. This allows people to donate vehicles, including cars, trucks, SUVs, even boats to our group. The CARS organization sells the vehicle, you get a tax deduction and we get the sale price as a donation. Everyone wins. CARS also provides free towing for the vehicle.

Ways to Help

Our mission is to make our shelter animals happier and give them a better chance at adoption. Since we are an all-volunteer group, we can't do that without dedicated volunteers! We need you! There are many ways you can help the Friends of the Burlington County Animal Shelter, including walking dogs, playing with cats, grooming the animals, posting pictures and bios of the animals online, fundraising, planning events, and, of course, donating money.
