Bounty to the rescue!

Bounty, the Quicker Picker Upper paper-towel maker, is partnering with Best Friends to help save the lives of homeless pets and support our shelter and rescue group partners during our national adoption weekend. For every dog adopted May 20–22, Bounty will donate $50 to our participating partners, and for every cat adopted during that time, Bounty will donate $25 to our participating partners.

When you adopt a pet, you save lives

At this very moment, there are about 100,000 more dogs and cats in U.S. shelters compared to this time last year. Partially because of the pandemic, more pets are entering shelters, fewer pets are being adopted, and shelters are over capacity and short-staffed. You can help by adopting a pet — and Bounty is helping, too.

By adopting, you give one lucky dog or cat a home and create space for another pet to be rescued. That means you become a lifesaver to two animals in need! Plus, you gain a friend — the best one you’ve ever had. A loyal companion who can offer you comfort and love, no matter what uncertainty life holds.

About Best Friends

Best Friends Animal Society is working to save the lives of cats and dogs all across the country, giving pets second chances and happy homes. As recently as 2016, nearly 1.5 million cats and dogs were killed in America just because shelters didn’t have the community support or the resources needed to save them.

Best Friends is committed to change that by 2025, by operating the nation’s largest sanctuary for companion animals and working with passionate people and shelters across the country. Together, we can Save Them All.
