Thanks to the generous outpouring of support from members of the Best Friends family, the animals received their year-end holiday matching gift — $4 million will save a lot of homeless pets!
Throughout this matching gift challenge, we told you about some incredible dogs who went from homeless to hero. They possessed inherent gifts that made them natural fits as service dogs for people in need.
Their gifts are extraordinary. But the impact any pet has on the person who loves them is no less valid. Cats, birds, bunnies, pigs … anyone lucky enough to share a home with one of these precious souls knows they all deliver the life-changing message of unconditional love. All we have to do is open our hearts.
Thank you so much for keeping your heart open to these animals. And thank you for letting your heart lead you to Best Friends. Because together we are creating a nation with No More Homeless Pets
