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.

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.
