Home for the holidays pet adoption

Animal Shelter

Burlington County Freeholder Deputy Director Bruce Garganio today announced a special “Home for the Holidays” promotion that will offer free pet adoptions to approved adopters through the month of December at the Burlington County Animal Shelter.

“With the holiday season upon us, we are looking to do all that we can to help more of the great pets waiting in our shelter find loving homes,” said Deputy Director Garganio. “Home for the Holidays is an easy way for residents to get into the holiday spirit by giving a new pet the home that they deserve.”

With the shelter nearing capacity, staff and volunteers are working harder than ever to find homes for the animals.

“The staff and friends group of the County animal shelter play a key role in making this effort a success,” Garganio added. “They do a spectacular job caring for our sheltered animals and are as eager as I am to see them go home with a loving family.”

The County Animal Shelter is located on Academy Drive off of Woodlane Road, behind the Burlington County Library in Westampton Township. Hours of operation are noon to 7 p.m. on Mondays and Thursdays; noon to 4 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and noon to 4 p.m. on Saturdays. The shelter is closed on Sundays and holidays.
