Think adoption first when you are considering adding a new family member

At Best Friends, we want you to always think adoption first when you are considering adding a new family member. Of course, we'd love for you to adopt an animal from us, but ultimately, choosing adoption is one of the most important differences you can make for a homeless pet.
