Help save homeless pets in VA

Shelters near you need help to save more lives. Every day, dogs and cats are killed in animal shelters across Virginia simply because they don’t have a place to call home. Together, with your help, we’re changing that.

Best Friends is working with animal welfare organizations and stakeholders statewide to save every pet who can be saved and reach no-kill through Virginia by 2025. Your local shelter is counting on your help. Now is the time to get involved and make a lifesaving difference.

Best Friends helps Virginia achieve lifesaving goals

With several in-state powerhouse agencies driving lifesaving work and strategies to achieve no-kill in Virginia, Best Friends supports state partners as needed, including the Virginia Federation of Humane Societies. Several agencies also lend their operational and programmatic strengths to surrounding states to increase lifesaving efforts via peer-to-peer mentorships and partnerships.
