Little Aria was found with a badly broken hind leg and was taken to the wonderful vets at the Mount Laurel Animal Hospital, who also care for the animals at the Burlington County Animal Shelter.  Dr. Torre, Aria's vet, believes that she may have been hit by a car. Aria had lung contusions and needed oxygen to help her breathe.

Aria is now on the road to recovery. Can you help us pay for her medical expenses? Any amount helps, from $5 to $50. We've set up a Love Animals page for Aria. Thank you!

The Friends of BCAS have partnered with Lost Dog Search and Rescue of Toms River, NJ, to try and relieve this dog’s pain and start him on the road to recovery and eventually to a new home. Lost Dog has pulled Titan and found a loving foster home for him so he can recover and heal.

Can you help us?  We aim to raise a total of $5,000.
