The Friends of the Burlington County Animal Shelter helps homeless animals in Burlington County by paying for life-saving surgery that is beyond the scope of the shelter, cooperating on dog and cat fostering programs, and reducing the number of homeless pets in the community by sponsoring low-cost spay/neuter surgeries.

We’ve helped animals such as Kali, a dog who was shot in the face, and needed surgery to repair her shattered jaw and teeth. And Rocky, a kitten with no control of his back legs or bladder, who needed a cart to get rolling and diapers with suspenders. We've also helped several of the dogs that were rescued from deplorable conditions as part of the hoarding situation in Shamong.

If you donate through our Facebook fundraiser, your donation will be matched by Facebook and PayPal, so you're doing twice as much good!

With your help and support on this Giving Tuesday, we’ll continue to help and be the voice of animals such as Kali, Rocky, and the hoarding case dogs. Thank you!

Kali is a sweet Staffie who was found running loose with what looked like a bullet wound in her face. After being examined at the Burlington County Animal Shelter, our group was told that a bullet had entered the lower part of Kali's face, shattering her jaw and breaking her teeth. We can only imagine how much pain this girl was in. Yet she was a sweetheart to everyone who handled her, poking and prodding to determine exactly what happened.

We don't know who shot Kali or why she was shot.

What we did know was that Kali needed immediate specialty dental surgery to remove her broken teeth and ensure that her jaw healed properly. This medical care was far beyond the scope of what the shelter could provide.

So our group stepped up to help Kali and now we're asking for help to pay her bills.

We've set up a special fundraising page to help pay for Kali's care. Any amount will help, from $5 to $50. Thank you!

October 2nd

Rainbow is a 2 1/2-year-old female shepherd/lab mix who came to the Burlington County Animal Shelter from South Carolina just after Hurricane Florence. The Burlington County Shelter knew Rainbow was heartworm-positive and so asked our group to help pay for Rainbow's treatment so she could be pulled to make room for animals that were displaced by the hurricane. We've set up a special fundraising page to pay for Rainbow's heartworm treatment. Can you help us help Rainbow?

Adorable little Rocky was just four weeks old when he was found by a volunteer with the Friends of the Burlington County Animal Shelter's TNR team. The tiny kitten had dragged himself out of the woods behind a car dealership to get to the food. Little Rocky was born with a congenital birth defect in which his back limbs are not connected to his pelvis and he cannot control his bladder. He's a messy little guy, but happy and well loved by his foster mom. We're raising money to get Rocky a cart (when he's big enough), as well as diapers with suspenders. Any amount helps! Thank you!
