At Best Friends, we've always firmly believed that collaboration with local shelters and organizations, the people who know their community best, is key to achieving No More Homeless Pets®. When we work together, we save more lives; it's as simple as that.
The No More Homeless Pets® Network is comprised of 501(c)(3) public charity rescue groups, spay/neuter organizations and shelters actively saving lives and reducing shelter deaths locally. Being a part of the Network gives groups all across the country the chance to work together, connected by the drive to achieve No More Homeless Pets. Membership also comes with benefits like the chance to take part in national adoption promotions, as well as discounts and scholarships to educational conferences, and consultations with Best Friends staff. A few select organizations which make significant and measurable impacts on shelter deaths in their communities may also qualify for grants. Examples of communities that really put Best Friends grants to work include Jacksonville and San Antonio.
Network Partners can also take part in fundraising events like our nationwide Strut Your Mutt. In 2012 alone, more than $875,000 dollars was raised for our Network Partners around the country. And they're using that money to help bring us all closer to No More Homeless Pets!
It's free to participate! If you are affiliated with a 501(c)(3) rescue organization, and are interested in applying to be a Network Partner, you can learn more about the program by clicking here.
