Caring for pets and people during COVID-19

Like you and so many others around the world, Best Friends is adjusting to the new reality ushered in by COVID-19. None of us really know when this pandemic will end and how many people and animals will be affected. But we are certain of one thing: Our commitment to our fellow humans is as strong as our commitment to the animals and we will continue our work to provide effective, creative lifesaving solutions for pets, people and communities.

Thank you to our generous corporate supporters.
