Our Mission to Save Lives

Saving animals is Best Friends' primary goal. We are working with you and with humane groups across the country to bring about a time when homeless, unwanted animals are no longer killed in shelters, and when every healthy dog or cat can be guaranteed a good life in a caring home.

Best Friends' initiatives are critical to ending the killing. Through our pit bull terrier initiatives, we are working to overcome breed discrimination and help pets receive the love and care they deserve. Through our puppy mill initiatives, we are working against irresponsible breeding and encouraging people to adopt rather than buy pets. Through our cat initiatives, we are working to keep cats safe and out of shelters, and promoting trap/neuter/return (TNR).

By participating in one of the initiatives, you can save lives, and help to Save Them All.
