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!

October is Pit Bull Awareness Month, so the Friends of the Burlington County Animal Shelter are hosting Pit Bull Awareness Day at the shelter on Saturday, Oct. 26.

There will be a bake sale, play groups with adoptable pit bulls, a costume contest for pit bulls, dog toy making, and a photo booth for you and your dogs.

Best of all, adoption fees are waived for approved adopters on all adult pitties and pit mixes, plus adult cats (because they need love, too).
