2016 Fiscal Year for Best Friends Animal Society

Best Friends is leading a concerted effort to end the killing of dogs and cats in our nation’s shelters — an effort that would not be possible without your commitment and partnership. 

Together, we have created a national network of lifesaving activity that is buzzing in every corner of the country. Innovative pet adoption programs, community-based spay/neuter efforts, pivotal legislative work and a cooperative network of shelters, animal welfare organizations, experts and volunteers. The work you’ve made possible is changing the world for animals and the people who love them. Thank you.

 

Friends, it's happening.
What was once a simple idea — that every animal’s life has intrinsic value — has transformed into a nationwide movement.”
Gregory Castle, CEO and co-founder, Best Friends Animal Society
