New Jersey has a goal to become no-kill (save rate of 90 percent or more) for companion animals by 2025. Let's work together to make that happen in Burlington County! The Friends of the Burlington Animal Shelter wants to join forces with businesses who share a vision of making our community a more compassionate place for homeless cats and dogs. Please consider becoming a 2019 corporate sponsor.

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!

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?
