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.

The Burlington County Animal Shelter is over capacity with both dogs and cats. To help spur more adoptions, the Friends of the Burlington County Animal Shelter is sponsoring special adoption prices. Through July 31, approved adopters can adopt any animal for only $10 -- including kittens and puppies. This is a significant savings. So hurry in and find your new best friend!

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.
