Sponsor an Animal

When you sponsor a homeless pet at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, you help that animal in ways that can’t even be counted.

With more than 1,600 animals currently being cared for at the Sanctuary, you’ll be sure to find the perfect match for everyone on your list. With your gift of $25 or more, you can send a special e-card or printable card that lets gift recipients know there’s a very lucky animal who’s awfully grateful.

Meet Sanctuary Animals

Sponsor Martha

Martha is friendly and playful.

Martha is slightly neurological, which means she is a bit off-balance at times, but it doesn’t stop her from climbing, jumping and chasing anything that moves. She would love to find a home with a special person who doesn't mind that she trembles. But until that day arrives, she'd love to have you sponsor her.

How Your Sponsorship Gift Helps

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 the need is there, receiving plenty of love and companionship until they find loving families of their own.

Animal sponsorship 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.

Pet 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.
