Make a gift or raise funds in memory of a pet or person

A gift in memory of a pet honors that lasting bond and is a tangible way to honor the enduring love we have for our pets long after they’ve passed.

When you purchase a memorial gift, your gift not only pays tribute to a beloved pet or person, it supports the work of Best Friends and helps homeless pets get the love and care they need to thrive as they wait for forever families of their own.

Your gift in memory of an animal or person will go straight to work helping homeless dogs and cats in Best Friends programs across the country.

Using our simple tools, you can raise money and awareness online to commemorate a beloved pet or person.
