Coalition members can receive grants, connect and collaborate with other organizations to help further their work, participate in adoption and fundraising events, take part in mentorship and training opportunities, and more. 

Best Friends also operates the Best Friends Network, which is made up of thousands of shelters, rescue groups and other animal welfare organizations throughout the country committed to saving the lives of homeless pets.
