Minnie is a tiny, tiny kitten who has either birth defects or trauma that affect her ability to clear her bladder on her own. We think it's either neurological damage from an injury or a hernia. She also has a problem with her left rear leg where it connects to her hip. It's not clear if that's an injury, a deformity, or related to an infection or abscess. This hip problem makes her walk a little funny. Minnie needs one and possibly more surgeries, so we've set up a special fundraising page for her medical care. Can you help us help Minnie get healthy?

Join us to run and walk for homeless animals in Burlington County on Sept. 29 at 8 a.m.. The off-road 5K course winds through beautiful Smithville Park in Eastampton. For those who prefer a shorter distance, we have a fun trail walk that is 1 mile long. It's a family affair, so bring your kids and pets!

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. For two weeks, you also can support our mission by buying some popcorn through our special fund-raising sale: www.supportyours.org/friendsofbcas.
