Where your donation goes

At Best Friends, we understand you have a lot of choices when it comes to charitable giving. We also know you want to make sure your animal charity donations are being used effectively and responsibly. We continually ensure that we are as efficient as we can be, and we want you to be confident when you give to Best Friends that every dollar is going as far as it possibly can to save more lives and help animals in need.

Donors – individuals just like you – are what make our work possible. The 91 percent we receive from individuals through donations and planned gifts make up the largest percentage of the gifts we receive. Those animal shelter donations are the lifeblood of the organization, paying for many of our programs around the country and, of course, the lifesaving work at the Sanctuary in Utah.
