The Friends of the Burlington County Animal Shelter helps homeless animals in Burlington County by paying for life-saving surgery that is beyond the scope of the shelter, cooperating on dog and cat fostering programs, and reducing the number of homeless pets in the community by sponsoring low-cost spay/neuter surgeries.

We’ve helped animals such as Kali, a dog who was shot in the face, and needed surgery to repair her shattered jaw and teeth. And Rocky, a kitten with no control of his back legs or bladder, who needed a cart to get rolling and diapers with suspenders. We've also helped several of the dogs that were rescued from deplorable conditions as part of the hoarding situation in Shamong.

If you donate through our Facebook fundraiser, your donation will be matched by Facebook and PayPal, so you're doing twice as much good!

With your help and support on this Giving Tuesday, we’ll continue to help and be the voice of animals such as Kali, Rocky, and the hoarding case dogs. Thank you!

Happy Tails

Arthur was adopted in March 2012 after the Burlington County Animal Alliance took him in and placed him in a local store's adoption cage. Arthur's new owner says: "We entitled the picture 'King Arthur sitting on Queen Ann's chair.' He is such a love! Very loving and enjoys being loved. He is adapting very well. Still investigating everything. He slept well, mainly with me, I think he felt safe, due to the fact that he can slip under the bed if he has to.
