December 2nd

Hooch was adopted from the shelter this summer and is now living like the superstar he is. But Hooch didn't forget his friends who were still living at the shelter, waiting for a forever home. So he talked his mom and dad and the county freeholders into sponsoring adoptions from the Burlington County Animal Shelter in December 2016.

Approved adopters can take home any dog for just $25 and any cat for FREE for the entire month of December, thanks to Hooch, his parents, Chris and Allie, and the Burlington County Freeholders. So bring home some joy in December!

On this #GivingTuesday, the Friends of the Burlington County Animal Shelter would like to share the story of a special dog named Lemon who was brought to the Burlington County Animal Shelter as a stray in August 2016. She was unable to use one of her back legs. The Friends of BCAS volunteer group arranged for Lemon to have a femoral head osteotomy; during surgery the doctor found a lot of scar tissue and an old fracture that was never treated. After surgery, Lemon still refused to use the leg. Thanks to people like you, Lemon was able to have physical therapy and use an underwater treadmill. She's doing amazingly well!

Can you help us to create more happy tails in Burlington County? Together, we can do amazing things in 2017.

Give your year-end gift today!

At the Pet Pictures with Santa event on Saturday, Nov. 26, one of our elves was slightly confused and told people to look for the photos on our website instead of on Facebook. So if you're here looking for your photos, please go to this album on our Facebook page. All the pictures are there. And thank you so much for coming out and supporting our group!

The Burlington County Animal Shelter is completely full of cats! We need your help. Are you thinking about adopting a pet? Could you adopt now? Or could you be a short-term foster for a senior animal or one with health issues that needs to recover? We need to get some of these cats out! Adoption fees are waived on adult cats from Nov. 15-23, 2016!

    Ways to Help

    Our mission is to make our shelter animals happier, healthier 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!
