The Friends of the Burlington County Animal Shelter, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The all-volunteer group cooperates with the county animal shelter to care for shelter pets and place them into adoptive homes. The group was founded in November 2010 and incorporated in February 2012.



Our two main goals are:

Helping the animals be happy and healthy in the shelter. We interact with the animals by walking the dogs and playing with the cats, which helps them release stress and pent-up energy, as well as improving their overall health and adoptability.



Helping the animals move from the shelter into forever homes, foster homes, and no-kill animal rescues. We promote the animals in a variety of ways, including helping post information to adoption websites, such as Petfinder, and acting as a liaison for the shelter with foster homes and no-kill rescues.



Right now, we have an URGENT need for food for both dogs and cats, including Royal Canin Mother and Baby Cat dry food, Royal Canin BabyCat canned food and Yesterday's News cat litter. Thank you!!
The Friends of the Burlington County Animal Shelter are committed to the well-being of pets at our shelter(s) and to finding them adoptive homes. Our focus is to facilitate adoptions through mental and physical stimulation for our shelter pets. We publicize the availability of pets through various media, social events, promotional programs and engaging rescue organizations. We educate and assist county residents on pet ownership and controlling overpopulation.

We have gotten 2 of our dogs from this shelter. One is a senior newfoundland who is an absolute sweetheart and our newest addition is a 5 year old boxer. Both are wonderful dogs and the staff is amazing to work with.

The volunteers at this shelter go above and beyond to socialize dogs and cats here. The resident animals are friendly, healthy, and eager to belong to a loving family. I highly recommend this shelter!

My handsome Leroy passed Tuesday. I called the shelter to find out what to do and I just wanted to say thank you to the staff. You guys were so awesome helping me. He was Leroy to you guys not just some dead cat. Thank you

This is the third dog in our household now, all adopted from you. We renamed her Zoey. She supposedly had a bite history, I was told at the shelter. She was rambunctious, but settled down nicely. She is the most loving and obedient and smart dog out of the bunch.
