We met our goal for our TNR matching campaign. THANK YOU all so much! Because of you, we can now spay/neuter 300 community cats!!

It costs $35 to spay/neuter, vaccinate and ear tip one community cat. We have four extremely generous supporters who will match every $35 donated up to $5,250. That means we can raise $10,500 to spay/neuter 300 community cats! We only need 55 more gift to achieve our goal!

On Nov. 29, 2017, the Burlington County Times ran a story on Shamong being the first municipality in Burlington County to adopt a trap-neuter-return policy (TNR) regulating the care of community cats, meaning any free-roaming, feral or barn cat that is cared for by one or more residents that has no discernible form of ownership identification.

This is great news for community cats in the county!

Pets with Perks

Sam
BCAS Pet Id: 36168734

Sam is a handsome DSH cat who is searching for a family to love. Though he is not an overly affectionate cat, he would love to hang around the house with you and look out the window and chill. Sam also loves petting and head rubs. Sam is already neutered so is ready to head home with you today.

Happy Tails

Junior was finally adopted into a wonderful home after 10 months at the shelter. His new owners say: "Junior is doing great. He's turning out to be a great addition to the family. We're so happy that we were able to give him a second chance. It's really hard to fathom that nobody adopted him before we did. Thanks again for taking care of Junior so we could give him a home. He's only been here for three weeks or so, but it feels like he's been part of our family for years."
