About Us

The Friends of the Burlington County Animal Shelter, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The all-volunteer group cooperates with the county animal shelter to care for shelter pets and place them into adoptive homes. The group was founded in November 2010 and incorporated in February 2012.

Our mission statement is:

We enhance the lives of shelter animals and help them find homes.

Our two main goals are:

  • Helping the animals be happy and healthy in the shelter. We interact with the animals by walking the dogs and playing with the cats, which helps them release stress and pent-up energy, as well as improving their overall health and adoptability.
  • Helping the animals move from the shelter into forever homes, foster homes, and no-kill animal rescues. We promote the animals in a variety of ways, including helping post information to adoption websites, such as Petfinder, and acting as a liaison for the shelter with foster homes and no-kill rescues.

We are also extremely proud to be a Platinum level member of GuideStar, an organization that ranks non-profits on their financial transparency.

We're also very proud to have received TWO 2016 Best of Burlington County Awards from Burlington County Times readers: One of the Best Charities and Best Outdoor Event for the Barb Feldstein Memorial Raining Cats & Dogs Pet Fest!
