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.
