Giving Tuesday exceeded our expectations

Thanks to everyone who donated to our Giving Tuesday campaign.

Your generosity never ceases to amaze. Thanks to you, the Friends of Burlington County Animal Shelter exceeded our campaign goal for Giving Tuesday 2020 in record time. We cannot thank you enough for supporting our Trap-Neuter-Return program for community cats. We raised more than $6,600!

Your donations not only support our community trappers and feed cat colonies, but they allow Friends of BCAS volunteers to transport stray and feral cats to partner clinics like Forgotten Cats, in Willow Grove, Penn. For the Friends of BCAS, Forgotten Cats has been a lifesaver during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many clinics reduced appointment slots and/or restricted how many feral cats could be spayed/neutered. Forgotten Cats maintained appointments three days a week, ensuring we could meet the demand.

Once surgeries are done and the felines get vaccinated, Friends of BCAS volunteers transport the cats back to the our halfway house where they recover before they're released back to where they were trapped or to managed colonies. Most felines spend two days recovering at the halfway house where they are cared for by volunteers.

These efforts are critical as we work with the Burlington County Animal Shelter and community to reach our no-kill vision by 2025.

Though Giving Tuesday has passed, there are still community cats that need our help. If you would still like to donate, our wish list includes a transport vehicle and a heated halfway house.
