Adorable little Rocky was just four weeks old when he was found by a volunteer with the Friends of the Burlington County Animal Shelter's TNR team. The tiny kitten had dragged himself out of the woods behind a car dealership to get to the food. Little Rocky was born with a congenital birth defect in which his back limbs are not connected to his pelvis and he cannot control his bladder. He's a messy little guy, but happy and well loved by his foster mom. We're raising money to get Rocky a cart (when he's big enough), as well as diapers with suspenders. Any amount helps! Thank you!

Pebey, the adorable pittie mix puppy broke his leg and his family couldn't afford his care. Our group stepped up to help and now we're raising money to help pay off Pebey's bills. Can you help us by donating to Pebey's special fundraiser? Any amount, even $5, will help a lot! Thank you!

Ways to Help

Our mission is to make our shelter animals happier and give them a better chance at adoption. Since we are an all-volunteer group, we can't do that without dedicated volunteers! We need you! There are many ways you can help the Friends of the Burlington County Animal Shelter, including walking dogs, playing with cats, grooming the animals, posting pictures and bios of the animals online, fundraising, planning events, and, of course, donating money. For two weeks, you also can support our mission by buying some popcorn through our special fund-raising sale: www.supportyours.org/friendsofbcas.
