Sponsor an animal and make a difference.
When you choose to sponsor a homeless pet here at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, your gift of $25 or more will help that animal and so many others around the country whose lives are touched by the work of Best Friends.* You can choose to sponsor a dog, cat, horse, pig, goat, bird or other animal in need.

Rescued from the property of NFL quarterback Michael Vick, Meryl has worked hard to overcome challenges from her painful former life. Meryl was ordered by the court to live at Best Friends for the rest of her life. So instead of a traditional family, she has a family of sponsors — a family you are invited to join.
Martha is slightly neurological, which means she is a bit off-balance at times, but it doesn’t stop her from climbing, jumping and chasing anything that moves. She would love to find a home with a special person who doesn't mind that she trembles. But until that day arrives, she'd love to have you sponsor her.
Since arriving at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, Oliver has learned to share the limelight (a difficult adjustment for a pig who used to fly solo). We just know his forever family is out there! In the meantime, he could use support from someone like you.
He’s got stunning soft, golden fur, a sweet personality and is super laid-back. And one thing’s for sure. This guy only wants a few things in life — a comfy couch to nap on and someone special to love. Will you be his special sponsor?
Nicky struggles with a few different issues, the biggest of which is deciding whether he wants to eat or snuggle in the mornings. He's a super social guy who hopes that you'll choose him to sponsor this holiday season.
Just ask the unwitting volunteers and they will tell you. He sizes up a person quickly, and if he thinks he can get away with it, he'll relieve his visitor of a camera, hat or any other object worth nabbing.
Saving pets here and around the country
Of course, you can sponsor any adoptable pet at the Sanctuary, a special place that is a home between homes for more than 1,600 animals on any given day. Pets here stay as long as long as the need is there, receiving plenty of love and companionship until they find loving families of their own.
As you may know, nearly 5,500 dogs and cats are killed in shelters across the country every day. But together we are changing that. Your sponsorship gift helps animals find loving homes, provides low- and no-cost spay/neuter programs, supports legislative and public education efforts all across the country that save the lives of pets ― and more.
Sponsorship gifts support the work of Best Friends Animal Society and help Save Them All. To assist the greatest number of animals in need, and to make sure your gift does the most good, your donation will be used in combination with other sponsorship gifts to help save the lives of animals.
*Please know that in order to make sure that your gift has the greatest impact, its use will not be restricted to the individual care of your sponsored animal, but will be used wherever it is needed most.
