April 16th

Join us to run and walk for homeless animals in Burlington County on Oct. 4 at 10 a.m. The off-road 5K course winds through beautiful Smithville Park in Eastampton. For those who prefer a shorter distance, we have a fun trail walk that is 1 mile long. It's a family affair, so bring your kids and pets!

March 30th

Our friends at SunSal Yoga were going to hold a fundraising yoga class for us, but in light of the COVID-19 outbreak, they've made some changes.

So, join us and SunSal via Zoom on April 18 at 10 a.m. for an hour of yoga livestreamed right to your house.

All donations collected will help the animals at the Burlington County Animal Shelter, including medical care and help to get animals into foster.l

March 17th

In the wake of COVID-19 restrictions, the Burlington County Animal Shelter is closed to the public until further notice. Staff members are available for animal reclaim, so if your pet is lost, you can still go to the shelter.

However, the shelter and our volunteer groups has worked very hard to get a number of shelter animals into foster homes so they can be adopted. Make sure you regularly look at the Friends of BCAS Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn pages to see animals available for adoption!

Be safe and be healthy!

March 11th

Whether you're Irish, not Irish, a dog lover, a cat lover, you're sure to love our St. PIttie's and St. Catty's adoption promotion.

From March 13 to March 17, approved adopters can take home any adult pitbull or any adult cat from the Burlington County Animal Shelter for only $25 -- a significant savings.

All animals are up to date on vaccinations, spayed/neutered, and microchippped.

So what are you waiting for? Stop by the shelter and meet your new best friend today!
