Our country’s animal shelters are in crisis, but you can help.

Adopt some love, save some lives.

At this very moment, about 100,000 more dogs and cats in U.S. shelters are at risk of being killed compared to this time last year.

Because of the pandemic, more pets are entering shelters, fewer pets are being adopted, shelters are short-staffed and adoption events are limited. But you can help by adopting a pet.

Adoption gives one lucky dog or cat a home and creates space for another pet to be rescued.

That means when you adopt a pet, you become a lifesaver to two animals in need. Not to mention, when you adopt a pet, 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.

Ready to adopt?

So many whiskered faces and wagging tails need your help. So please be a lifesaver today and adopt a pet from your local shelter or rescue group.

About Best Friends

Best Friends Animal Society is working to save the lives of cat and dogs all across the country, giving pets second chances and happy homes. Just five years ago, nearly 1.5 million cat and dogs were being 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 homeless animals and working with shelters across the country. Together, we can Save Them All.
