Help save homeless pets in NJ
Shelters near you need help to save more lives. In 2022, 2,407 dogs and cats were killed in animal shelters across New Jersey, but together with your help, we’re changing that.

Best Friends focuses on cats in New Jersey
Best Friends is supporting two bills (A. 2275 and S. 179) focused on saving cats. These bills would allow trap-neuter-vaccinate-return for community cats (aka cats who live outdoors) in New Jersey and establish a state fund for spay and neuter services. Best Friends also partners with Burlington County Animal Shelter and Camden County’s Homeward Bound Pet Adoption Center on satellite foster programs to increase positive outcomes for dogs and cats.
