Minnie is a tiny, tiny kitten who has either birth defects or trauma that affect her ability to clear her bladder on her own. We think it's either neurological damage from an injury or a hernia. She also has a problem with her left rear leg where it connects to her hip. It's not clear if that's an injury, a deformity, or related to an infection or abscess. This hip problem makes her walk a little funny. Minnie needs one and possibly more surgeries, so we've set up a special fundraising page for her medical care. Can you help us help Minnie get healthy?

Bear was surrendered to the Burlington County Animal Shelter because of his health issues. He had an extreme eye infection, as well as a severely matted coat, which was causing major health concerns, plus a mouthful of rotten teeth. Bear needed MAJOR grooming, over multiple days he also needs blood work, eye medicine, antibiotics, and has to have nearly all his teeth removed. Because Bear's medical bills are high, we've set up a special page for Bear to help raise money to pay for his care. Your donation to Bear's care will help him continue to recover his health in comfort and enjoy a special diet that is easy for him to eat and digest.

Happy Tails

Snickers came to the shelter in July 2011 and was adopted after spending 589 days (more than 1.5 years) there. Snickers started out as a very smart, driven, energetic dog who slowly grew sad and tubby in his kennel despite everyone's best efforts to keep him happy and healthy. It was well past time for him to get out of the shelter when his adopters found him! Carlous and Juanita fell in love with our boy, and this is what they have to say:
