Mission Statement/About Us

Burlington County Animal Alliance is a private, independent, 501(3)(c) nonprofit animal advocacy group, that was founded in 1999. To date, we have around 60 members of BCAA. We focus primarily on rescue and adoption of shelter dogs and cats from Burlington County and surrounding areas. Our main focus is to make the public aware of the numbers of homeless dogs and cats there are in shelters and to promote adoption of these animals. We advocate spaying and neutering of all companion animals to counteract the overpopulation of dogs and cats and to end the tragedy of euthanizing healthy, unwanted companion pets.

In 2004, BCAA was awarded a Proclamation from the Freeholders of Burlington County for the outstanding work we do to help the homeless animals of Burlington County, including keeping the Shelter Website up to date and also rescuing the animals that are in sick and/or in danger of being euthanized because of lack of space and money.


Groundbreaking Ceremony

On Oct 4, 2004, BCAA was invited to share in the Groundbreaking Ceremony for the new expansion of the Burlington County Animal Shelter. The expansion will house 50 more dogs and 50 more cats. In attendance were the Burlington County Freeholders, the Burlington County Heath Department, Burlington County Animal Shelter Staff, along with some of our BCAA volunteers.

Shelter Expansion Complete

The Burlington County Animal Alliance and Freeholder Dawn Marie Addiego were the driving forces behind the expansion, which increased the facility's size from 5,500 to 9,000 square feet.

BCAA received a Proclamation for the work they do in helping save the animals of Burlington County. "A heartfelt thanks," Alliance volunteer Pat Kelly told Addiego and other freeholders.
