Pit bull terrier type dog with kittens

National Adoption Weekend is September 15-17! Fees waived for all animals at the Sanctuary.

Adopt a pet as unique as you this National Adoption Weekend, September 15-17. Together, we can create a bright future for every last snuggle bug and running buddy. We can ensure each one knows the happiness of waking up in a home of their very own. And by adopting from a local shelter or rescue organization, we can make the entire country no-kill by 2025.

As part of National Adoption Weekend, Best Friends Animal Sanctuary is offering fee waived adoptions for ALL animals. 

To meet a specific pet, please email to make an appointment.
