We believe that each shelter and the community it serves has its own individual personality, just like each animal in its care. And because of that, each shelter deserves support and resources designed to address its specific lifesaving needs. Network partners have access to the following resources and tools:

  • National fundraising events like Strut Your Mutt and national adoption promotions
  • Support from a dedicated regional team for shelters in each state and region to have the opportunity to participate in coalition-building, to learn from shelters in surrounding counties and states, and serve as lifesaving models for others
  • Opportunities for grants that support lifesaving programs, such as adoption, spay/neuter and intake prevention
  • Access to specialized resources and webinars presented by Best Friends staff members and experts from across the country
  • Discounted registration rates for the annual Best Friends National Conference and the opportunity to attend partner-only networking and appreciation events held during the conference
  • Scholarships or discounts for Best Friends workshops
  • Listing on the network website that links visitors to your organization’s website
