On Saturday, Oct. 28, from noon to 3 p.m. the Friends of BCAS will be hosting activities in honor of Pit Bull Awareness Day at the Burlington County Animal Shelter.

Outside, we will have dog playgroups, a Halloween costume contest, the Kiss-A-Bull booth, and a truth about pit bulls information station. Inside the shelter, we will have a Cuddle a Kitty day, a toy making station, a bake sale. Inside, it will be Cuddle-A-Kitty Day, so the cats don't feel overlooked, and there will also be a toy-making station and a bake sale. Plus, we'll also be selling Santa Paws 50/50 tickets -- last year's winner took home nearly $2,000, so make sure to buy some tickets!

The Burlington County Animal Shelter is doing its part to help dogs in Puerto Rico affected by the hurricane. After a quarantine period, these dogs will be available for adoption. Meanwhile, the shelter is at capacity for dogs. If you've been considering adopting, please visit the shelter.

Dogs that have been at the shelter for at least 3 months are free to approved adopters on Oct. 1. The shelter is open noon to 4 p.m. on Sundays. Together, we can save lives and give these dogs a great home!

Our first Paw Prints 5K was last April on the same day as our annual Barb Feldstein Memorial Raining Cats & Dogs Pet Fest at the Burlington County Animal Shelter. It was so successful and everyone had so much fun that we decided to make the race a stand-alone event on the last Saturday in September at a new venue, beautiful Smithville Park in Eastampton. And since we didn't want to wait more than a year to have another race, we're going to have two in 2017! The next Paw Prints 5K is Saturday, Sept. 30.
