Become a NKLA Coalition member

Though we’ve made tremendous progress for homeless dogs and cats in L.A. and across the country, there’s still work to do, and collaboration is key. Your organization can help by joining the NKLA Coalition.

Best Friends Animal Society has worked side-by-side with Los Angeles Animal Services (LAAS) and the No-Kill Los Angeles (NKLA) Coalition to go from a 56% save rate in 2012 to a 90% save rate in 2020. While navigating tremendous change and obstacles throughout the pandemic, the City of Los Angeles has been able to maintain a high save rate in 2022. 

We are continuing to pivot our strategies, create programming sustainability, and help the public support the lifesaving of cats and dogs through foster, volunteering, and adoption.
