Saving lives in Burlington County
Last year, hundreds of thousands of loving dogs and cats were killed in communities around the nation, just because they didn’t have safe places to call home.
But, together, we can change that and save lives here in Burlington County, New Jersey and beyond.
Best Friends and Burlington County Animal Shelter in New Jersey are working together to save vulnerable dogs and cats through fostering. This new foster program will focus on saving pets’ lives by recruiting pet foster caregivers and providing the training and supplies necessary for foster caregivers to save lives.
You, too, can foster, to help save the lives of dogs and cats in Burlington County. You can also adopt, volunteer and advocate for the animals. Working together, we’ll create better lives for Burlington County pets and a happier, healthier community for both people and animals.
Adopt to help save lives
When you adopt a dog or cat who’s been patiently waiting for a place to call home, you’re saving a life.
Foster: open your heart and home
When you foster a dog or cat in Burlington County, you’re not only providing a safe and loving place for a pet to learn and grow, you’re helping to make room for more animals in the shelter.
