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!

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 animals out!

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.

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.
