Helping animals from home or locally

We have many opportunities that allow you to volunteer with Best Friends and Best Friends Network partners from home or in your community!

The Best Friends Network is made up of hundreds of shelters, rescue groups and other animal welfare organizations from all across the country that are committed to saving the lives of homeless pets through effective adoption, spay/neuter and intake prevention programs. The network was built upon Best Friends Animal Society’s belief that collaboration is one of the keys to ending killing of dogs and cats in America’s shelters. Together, we are leading the way by inspiring communities and implementing proven methods that show the country that no-kill is possible.
