Don’t Be Cruel Donates to Friends of the Burlington County Animal Shelter in May

Friends-of-the-Burlington-County-Animal-Shelter

This month we are happy to announce that our online proceeds raised in May will be going to the Friends of the Burlington County Animal Shelter (FOBCAS).

Friends of the Burlington County Animal Shelter was founded in 2010. They became a non-profit, 501(c)3 in February 2012. The all-volunteer group is devoted to the animals of the Burlington County Animal Shelter.

Volunteers provide much-needed emotional and physical exercise to the many dogs at BCAS. They walk, bathe, groom, provide playtime and affection to the dogs until they find a new home. They also socialize cats, allow them to play outside their cages, cuddle and love the cats until they find a home.

The volunteers do all the marketing of the animals by taking pictures, doing videos and writing bios about their personalities for potential adopters to view online. They attend community events and provide tours at the shelter in an effort to increase community awareness about adopting pets from the shelter.

Friends of BCAS is a separate organization from the BCAS itself.

From May 1-31, 2014, Don’t Be Cruel will donate the following to the FOBCAS to help shelter animals:

  • $5 for each t-shirt sold
  • $5 for each collar/leash combo sold
  • $1 for each bracelet sold
  • $1 for each magnet sold
  • $1 for each dog tag sold

Raining Cats & Dogs Pet Fest Was a Success

Thanks to everyone who purchased Don’t Be Cruel items at the Westampton, NJ pet event, we were able to donate to the Burlington County Animal Shelter.

This past weekend, Don’t Be Cruel attended Friends of Burlington County Animal Shelter’s Raining Cats & Dogs Pet Fest. The event gave the shelter volunteers an opportunity to raise money for their pets through raffles, bake sales and vendors. Families were able to participate in fun events like tattoos for kids, digital pet photos, paw prints, live music and more.

Friends of the Burlington County Animal Shelter was founded in 2010 as a volunteer group devoted to supporting the animals of the Burlington County Animal Shelter. Though they are close partners, Friends of BCAS is a separate organization from the shelter itself.
