Kali is a sweet Staffie who was found running loose with what looked like a bullet wound in her face. After being examined at the Burlington County Animal Shelter, our group was told that a bullet had entered the lower part of Kali's face, shattering her jaw and breaking her teeth. We can only imagine how much pain this girl was in. Yet she was a sweetheart to everyone who handled her, poking and prodding to determine exactly what happened.
We don't know who shot Kali or why she was shot.
What we did know was that Kali needed immediate specialty dental surgery to remove her broken teeth and ensure that her jaw healed properly. This medical care was far beyond the scope of what the shelter could provide.
So our group stepped up to help Kali and now we're asking for help to pay her bills.
Rainbow is a 2 1/2-year-old female shepherd/lab mix who came to the Burlington County Animal Shelter from South Carolina just after Hurricane Florence. The Burlington County Shelter knew Rainbow was heartworm-positive and so asked our group to help pay for Rainbow's treatment so she could be pulled to make room for animals that were displaced by the hurricane. We've set up a special fundraising page to pay for Rainbow's heartworm treatment. Can you help us help Rainbow?

Adorable little Rocky was just four weeks old when he was found by a volunteer with the Friends of the Burlington County Animal Shelter's TNR team. The tiny kitten had dragged himself out of the woods behind a car dealership to get to the food. Little Rocky was born with a congenital birth defect in which his back limbs are not connected to his pelvis and he cannot control his bladder. He's a messy little guy, but happy and well loved by his foster mom. We're raising money to get Rocky a cart (when he's big enough), as well as diapers with suspenders. Any amount helps! Thank you!
Pebey, the adorable pittie mix puppy broke his leg and his family couldn't afford his care. Our group stepped up to help and now we're raising money to help pay off Pebey's bills. Can you help us by donating to Pebey's special fundraiser? Any amount, even $5, will help a lot! Thank you!
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?
"I wanted to let everyone know that Duncan (aka Carson) is doing great. This is a picture of him on his ride to my house. We are still working on him staying calm, but he is much better on the leash. He starts school on Sunday and he will have his stitches out on Monday, so it's a big weekend for him. Thank you so much for all of the care and love that you gave him while he was at the shelter."
