A place for the pets and people of our community

The Best Friends Pet Resource Center is a place of opportunity and lifesaving, where homeless pets can find families of their very own.

It’s also a place where people can celebrate pets and find resources to help them care for their animals. Our space is intended for everyone — whether you're here to meet an adorable adoptable pet, find a dog or cat to foster, or visit our maker space to make toys for pets. 

Need help? We also offer a qualifying and need-based pet health and vaccination clinic.

This is a place where community members can adopt a new best friend and a place where people can gather to share knowledge with others, build awareness about issues facing animals today, and work together to Save Them All.

A place for pets and people who love them

Everything about the center — from its design to its function to its operation — reflects the understanding that our animal companions are an integral part of our families and our communities.

The space features open areas to get to know adoptable dogs and cats, fun activities for people of all ages, a DIY dog-bathing center, a café where guests can hang out with cats and kittens, a pet food and supplies pantry, and much more.
