If your organization is a Best Friends Network Partner, you're invited to join us on the evening of Friday, July 20 from 7-9 p.m. at the Border Grill. As a thank you for all you do for the animals, we're throwing you an exclusive VIP party, where you'll get the chance to network with other partners and special guests, and win some money to further the work you do.
  • Post-conference tours: Want a first-hand look at what’s working to make Los Angeles no-kill? Take one of our Sunday trips. You can see how lives are being saved at the NKLA Pet Adoption Center in West Los Angeles or the Best Friends Pet Adoption Center in Mission Hills. You don’t want to miss this special opportunity to learn more about these adoption centers. Space is limited. You can sign up for one of these Sunday side trips when you register for the conference.
