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.
