Saving pets here and around the country

Of course, you can sponsor any adoptable pet at the Sanctuary, a special place that is a home between homes for more than 1,600 animals on any given day. Pets here stay as long as long as the need is there, receiving plenty of love and companionship until they find loving families of their own. 

As you may know, nearly 5,500 dogs and cats are killed in shelters across the country every day. But together we are changing that. Your sponsorship gift helps animals find loving homes, provides low- and no-cost spay/neuter programs, supports legislative and public education efforts all across the country that save the lives of pets ― and more.

Sponsorship gifts support the work of Best Friends Animal Society and help Save Them All. To assist the greatest number of animals in need, and to make sure your gift does the most good, your donation will be used in combination with other sponsorship gifts to help save the lives of animals.

*Please know that in order to make sure that your gift has the greatest impact, its use will not be restricted to the individual care of your sponsored animal, but will be used wherever it is needed most.
