On Nov. 29, 2017, the Burlington County Times ran a story on Shamong being the first municipality in Burlington County to adopt a trap-neuter-return policy (TNR) regulating the care of community cats, meaning any free-roaming, feral or barn cat that is cared for by one or more residents that has no discernible form of ownership identification.

This is great news for community cats in the county!

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. For two weeks, you also can support our mission by buying some popcorn through our special fund-raising sale: www.supportyours.org/friendsofbcas.
