Best Friends Animal Society

Best Friends Animal Society is a leading national animal welfare organization dedicated to ending the killing of dogs and cats in America’s shelters. In addition to running lifesaving programs in partnership with more than 3,300 animal welfare groups across the country, Best Friends has regional programs in New York City, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Salt Lake City, Houston, Northwest Arkansas and operates the nation’s largest no-kill sanctuary for companion animals. Founded in 1984, Best Friends is a pioneer in the no-kill movement and has helped reduce the number of animals killed in shelters nationwide from an estimated 17 million per year to around 355,000. That means there are still about 950 dogs and cats killed every day in shelters, just because they don’t have safe places to call home. Determined to bring the country to no-kill by the year 2025, Best Friends and its nationwide network of members and partners are working to Save Them All®.
