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.
