A place for animal lovers like you

Looking to spend time with adoptable pets? Great, they can’t wait to meet you!

Best Friends’ goal is to ensure loving foster homes where pets can stay until they’re adopted, as well as a love-filled, stress-free experience here at the center where you can help them feel right at home by coming to visit. 

Whether you want to socialize kittens, take an adoptable dog on a fun-filled outing for the day or toss a ball in the play yard, sit quietly with an older pet, or schedule a meet and greet with one of our pets in foster care, you’ll be brightening an animal’s day with the gift of your time.

Schedule a meet and greet with an adoptable pet

Interested in one of the dogs or cats? Scheduling a meet and greet is a great way to get to know an adoptable pet.

If you would like to meet one of the animals currently in foster care, please contact our foster team at fosternwa@bestfriends.org. Our team will work with you and the foster family to set up a time to meet the pet here at the center.

Visit the cat rooms

The cat rooms were designed with the comfort of the residents in mind, and they will happily show you around when you visit.

Visit adoptable dogs in the dog yards

Each day, a selection of adoptable dogs will visit the pet resource center to take part in enrichment opportunities and to meet potential adopters.

Take an adoptable dog on an outing

Dog Day Out is a program that pairs adoptable dogs from foster homes with people who want to provide exposure and enrichment for a dog via an off-site excursion.
