Best Friends–New York

Best Friends–New York works together with you to save the lives of pets in shelters in New York City and the surrounding tri-state area.

As part of this work, Best Friends–New York hosts the annual pet super adoption and Strut Your Mutt events, two of the largest adoption and fundraising events in the area. The super adoption event, held twice a year, helps hundreds of pets from dozens of local shelters and rescue groups to find forever homes. And Strut Your Mutt provides much-needed financial support to dozens of local animal welfare groups so they can do what they do best — save lives. These are just a few of the lifesaving events Best Friends hosts that support the stability and growth of local animal welfare groups to help end the killing of pets in New York shelters.

In collaboration with Animal Care and Control of NYC, Best Friends has also created a foster program in New York, which gives homeless pets from Animal Care and Control of NYC a better chance at finding forever homes. The foster program is just one more critical step along the way to ending the killing of pets in shelters for good.

By working together in New York, we can Save Them All.
