As part of our community outreach program we are accepting your unused dog houses. These will be given to those unfortunate dogs that have no shelter and whose family’s are in need of help.

To the followers and supporters of the Burlington County  S.P.C.A. Law Enforcement Division Humane Police, we would like to make you aware of the recent Law Enforcement efforts of our Officers, Investigators and Agents.

From 7/5/14 – 8/25/14 we have responded to 43 complaints of possible animal abuse. Of these 43 cases, 15 have been closed. Some people in the 15 cases  have been charged under the Animal Cruelty Statutes of New Jersey and are awaiting trial. No further information will be released due to the sensitive nature of animal cruelty. All of the 43 cases being investigated  or closed involved the following types of animals: dog complaints, cat complaints, animals locked in vehicles, welfare checks involving possible mistreatment of horses, dogs, cats, and a turtle.

Those cases not closed are being  actively investigated. Not all investigations will result in charges being filed. The following is a list of the townships where the complaints originated: Southampton , Westampton , Mt. Laurel, Tabernacle, Burlington City, North Hanover, Roebling, Marlton, Pemberton, Pemberton Boro, Riverside, Mt. Holly, Lumberton, Wrightstown, Palmyra, Delran, Maple Shade, Shamong, Moorestown, Browns Mills, Cinnaminson and Edgewater Park.

The problem of animal cruelty is widespread as seen above. Your continued support is very much appreciated and needed. We pledge to continue to actively and aggressively investigate and charge those that commit crimes against those that are the most vulnerable in our society.

If you haven’t made a donation or even if you have, please consider it.

Thank you from the Burlington County S.P.C.A. Law Enforcement Division Humane Police
