Partner with Best Friends to Save Them All

Help Save Them All by partnering with a leading national animal welfare nonprofit

Best Friends, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is leading the nationwide movement to end the killing of dogs and cats in America's animal shelters by the year 2025. And we, along with the dogs and cats, would love to have you as a partner on this journey.

Stand shoulder-to-shoulder with us and other like-minded individuals, animal welfare organizations, foundations and companies as we work to make the entire country no-kill. By lending your voice, mobilizing supporters and customers, and helping to raise critical funds, you can change the lives of pets in communities throughout the nation.

Corporate partners

Philanthropic businesses across the country partner with Best Friends through a national cause marketing campaign to Save Them All, while enjoying the opportunity to leverage the enormous appeal of pets in marketing campaigns and the workplace. Through this partnership, your company can play a critical role in helping to achieve no-kill for homeless pets nationwide by the year 2025. Starting with a guaranteed minimum donation of $25,000, you can choose from a variety of partnership levels. Find out more about partnering with Best Friends.

Foundation partners

Having a meaningful, positive impact is what family, corporate or community foundations are all about. By partnering with Best Friends and honoring us with the opportunity to help you meet your philanthropic goals, you can inspire lifesaving change for animals on a national scale. Working together allows us to align our shared missions to help those in need, leverage our collective resources, and deepen our engagement in communities across the nation to have lasting and lifesaving impact. Learn more about joining the Best Friends family as a foundation partner.

Network partners

Collaboration and partnership defines the Best Friends Network, which includes more than 2,000 public and private animal shelters, rescue groups, spay/neuter organizations and other animal welfare groups across all 50 states. Best Friends understands that needs-driven, community-based work is the key to ending the killing in America's shelters. And your group, as one of those community-based organizations, is best positioned to understand the needs of pets and people in your area. Best Friends provides resources to help network partners assess community needs and implement effective programs to promote adoption and spay/neuter and to prevent pets from entering shelters in the first place. Learn more about becoming a member of the Best Friends Network.

Celebrity supporters

When celebrities use their voices, the no-kill message and mission reach more people. Influential public figures are able to raise awareness and help build momentum as we work together toward our 2025 goal. Celebrity voices help spotlight key issues such as adopting a pet instead of purchasing one, spaying and neutering to prevent unwanted litters, and fighting puppy mills and breed discrimination. Those voices also help inspire people to foster pets, volunteer in shelters and their community, and donate to save more lives. If you or someone you represent would like to join Best Friends' celebrity supporters, please contact Amy Wolf at
