Volunteer to save the lives of homeless pets
With thousands of dogs and cats in shelters across the country hoping for their very own families, one of the most valuable gifts you can give is your time.
Your kindness makes all the difference in the lives of homeless pets ― whether you volunteer locally or at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah, give rides to pets across the country, or help animals from your home through one of our national opportunities.
There are so many ways you can make a lifesaving difference for dogs and cats by volunteering.
You can volunteer at one of the Best Friends locations around the country or at a Best Friends Network Partner near you. You can also foster a pet, care for community cats, or advocate for pets, shelters, and rescue groups where you live.
