The Best Friends Network is comprised of thousands of public and private shelters, rescue groups, spay/neuter organizations and other animal welfare groups in all 50 states that are committed to saving the lives of homeless pets through effective adoption, spay/neuter and intake prevention programs. The network is at the heart of the collaborative spirit that helps define Best Friends. Working together with partners, we are inspiring communities and implementing proven methods to increase lifesaving of dogs and cats across the country.
