Not sure what the Best Friends Network is?

The Best Friends Network comprises hundreds of animal welfare organizations across all 50 states, and is at the heart of Best Friends’ nationwide efforts to Save Them All.

The network includes:

  • Public and private animal shelters
  • Animal rescue groups
  • Spay/neuter and trap-neuter-return organizations
  • Other non-profit animal welfare organizations dedicated to creating safe, humane communities for pets and their people

Only through collaboration and partnership, will we end the killing of cats and dogs in our nation’s animal shelters and achieve no-kill for cats and dogs in America by 2025.
