On Sunday, October 4th, 2020 join us to raise awareness and funds to help the homeless animals in Burlington County. The off road 5K course winds through beautiful, historic Smithville Park in Eastampton. For those who prefer a shorter distance, there will be a fun one-mile trail walk. Participants are welcomed to run or walk with their dog or cat (stroller/picture).
You will make new friends, including the four legged kind. With your help and our commitment, Friends of Burlington County Animal Shelter will continue our efforts to become a no-kill community for companion animals by 2025! This is our largest fundraising event and the proceeds will help fund advanced medical care, spay/neuter assistance, our trap-neuter-return and foster programs. Everyone is encouraged to solicit pledges because we all believe in second chances.
Get involved today by forming a team with your friends and family or registering as an individual. If you don't live in the area or have trouble walking, you can join us by participating virtually.
For more information about our mission, visit the Friends of BCAS website.
