If you've just about had it with leftover turkey, treat yourself to dinner out at P.J. Whelihan's in Maple Shade on Thursday, Dec. 4 and help Burlington County Shelter animals at the same time. From 5 p.m. until closing, mention that you're dining to support FOBCAS and the restaurant will donate a portion of your bill to our group.


We'll have adoptable dogs at the Mt. Laurel Animal Hospital on July 11 -- come meet 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.
