Friends of BCAS works diligently to save the lives of homeless animals in Burlington County, as well as enrich the lives of animals at the Burlington County Animal Shelter until they find their forever homes. Surveys show that up to 70 percent of U.S. households have a cat or dog. Partnering with the Friends of BCAS offers your company a chance to connect with thousands of people who are interested in pets and pet products.

Support from sponsors is critical for us to meet our twin goals of finding homes for all shelter pets in Burlington County and eliminating euthanasia of healthy pets simply because they are homeless.

We are extremely proud to have been named 2017 Best Charity by the readers of the Burlington County Times. BCT readers also awarded our Barb Feldstein Memorial Raining Cats & Dogs Pet Fest the 2017 Best Outdoor Event award, as well as the One of the Best Family Events award. We are also platinum certified by GuideStar, a group that ranks charities on financial transparency.

Below are our 2018 showcase events and the sponsorship opportunities for those events.

Please join us and help advocate for the homeless animals of Burlington County!
