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).

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.
