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

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!
