Save homeless pets in Northwest Arkansas

Best Friends is dedicated to finding permanent, loving homes for dogs and cats in America's shelters, including here in Northwest Arkansas. Together with caring people in the community like you, we can ensure every pet knows a bright future. Check out a few of the ways you can make a difference.

Adopt a pet

By adopting a dog or cat, you're helping Save Them All - one four-legged friend at a time. While the new pet resource center is being built, you can search for adoptable pets in the Northwest Arkansas area online or in our cat lifesaving center in Bentonville, Arkansas.


Experience the joy and fulfillment that helping animals brings. And know that your efforts, big or small, are helping to Save Them All.

Foster a homeless pet

Though you didn't plan it, you're probably spending more time at home and less time out and about. So now is the perfect time to foster a homeless pet.

Fostering gives dogs and cats the time, love and care they need to find adoptive homes. Plus, it opens up space for another pet to be rescued, which is why foster homes are so crucial for saving lives.

Did you know that fostering a pet will help you, too? Studies have shown that having a pet can help reduce stress and anxiety. Whether you prefer cat snuggles or dog kisses, we have a furry friend who can make your days a little happier. We'll give you everything you need to care for your foster pet, including supplies, vet care and support.

Find a foster pet who fits in perfectly with your family!
