Everyone loves getting a great deal around the holidays, so we have a very special one for you!

From now until Dec. 31, approved adopters can take home any adult cat (age 6 months or older) from the Burlington County Animal Shelter at no cost. The Friends of BCAS are prepaying the adoption fees!

October 22nd

October is Pit Bull Awareness Month, so the Friends of the Burlington County Animal Shelter are hosting Pit Bull Awareness Day at the shelter on Saturday, Oct. 26.

There will be a bake sale, play groups with adoptable pit bulls, a costume contest for pit bulls, dog toy making, and a photo booth for you and your dogs.

Best of all, adoption fees are waived for approved adopters on all adult pitties and pit mixes, plus adult cats (because they need love, too).

September 17th

Huge thanks to everyone who voted for the Friends of the Burlington County Animal Shelter as Best Charity in the Burlington County Times Best of contest.

Thanks to your support of our group and its mission, we were named Best Charity of 2019.

Goat yoga is always fun, but in October it also will have a purpose.

The Friends of BCAS are teaming up with Old Oak Acres to offer two goat yoga fundraising classes on Sunday, Oct. 6, at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m.

Each class features an hour of yoga with a certified instructor with 20 years of experience, followed by 15 minutes of play time with the goats. Yoga mats and healthy snacks will be provided.
