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!

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?

Bear was surrendered to the Burlington County Animal Shelter because of his health issues. He had an extreme eye infection, as well as a severely matted coat, which was causing major health concerns, plus a mouthful of rotten teeth. Bear needed MAJOR grooming, over multiple days he also needs blood work, eye medicine, antibiotics, and has to have nearly all his teeth removed. Because Bear's medical bills are high, we've set up a special page for Bear to help raise money to pay for his care. Your donation to Bear's care will help him continue to recover his health in comfort and enjoy a special diet that is easy for him to eat and digest.

One-year-old Alexis left the shelter and went to Crown Ridge Rescue in Tennessee, 1,000 miles away. Alexis came to the shelter after her owner's house burned down. As is common for her breed, she's not a fan of strangers. So the shelter decided Alexis could only safely go to a rescue that was experienced with her breed, Fila Brasiliero. Alexis adjusted pretty much instantly to her new home, including her new mom and dad and her new doggy buddies.
