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!

September 26th

Because the Burlington County Animal Shelter is overflowing with cats, the Friends of BCAS is sponsoring a special feline adoption promotion.

Any cat 6 months or older can be adopted for FREE by an approved adopter from Sept. 24 to Oct. 8. All cats are spayed/neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccines and come with 30 days of free pet insurance.

September 13th

Through Sept. 18, approved adopters can take home any cat or kitten at the Burlington County Animal Shelter for half price! You can save up to $30! Stop in and meet your new best friend!

September 13th

Our friends at Smylie's Ice Cream Shop in Columbus are hosting a dine and donate event for the Friends of the Burlington County Animal Shelter on Oct. 7  from noon to 9 p.m.

No coupon is needed. Just stop in the shop on Friday, Oct. 7, order something delicious, and Smylie's will donate 10 percent of the day's sales to our group.

September 1st

We met our goal!! From Aug. 15 to Aug. 31, the Peter and Audrey Denton Foundation generously offered to match ALL donations to the Friends of BCAS up to $5,000. These funds will be used to help our group continue to subsidize low-cost spay/neuter clinics in Burlington County. You donated $5,000 and it was matched, so we now have $10,000 to continue to subsidize low-cost spay/neuter clinics in Burlington County.

THANK YOU so much

    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.
