Target demographics: pets in shelters find homes.

Direct beneficiaries per year: 160,381 animals

Geographic areas served: local and national arenas

Programs: • Best Friends Animal Society is the only national animal welfare organization dedicated exclusively to ending the killing of dogs and cats in America’s shelters. When Best Friends began in 1984, some 17 million animals died every year in America’s shelters, simply for not having homes. Today, that number is down to about 4 million. That’s incredible progress, but it also means that more than 9,000 wonderful dogs and cats are still losing their lives every day. Together, we can change that.
• For 30 years, Best Friends has been running the nation’s largest no-kill sanctuary for companion animals and building effective programs all across the country that reduce the number of animals entering shelters and increase the number who find homes. Join us. Together, we can Save Them All®.

Mission:
Best Friends Animal Society is the only national animal welfare organization focused exclusively on ending the killing of dogs and cats in America's shelters. To this end, Best Friends works with shelters, rescue groups and our members nationwide on a variety of grassroots programs. By implementing targeted spay/neuter and community cat programs – trap/neuter/return (TNR) programs – to reduce the number of animals who enter shelters, and by increasing the number of people who adopt pets, we know we can end the killing. We know we can Save Them All®.
Results:
When Best Friends began in 1984, some 17 million animals died every year in our nation’s shelters, simply for not having safe places to call home. Today, that number is down to about 4 million.

I was lucky enough to visit the sanctuary and "work" in the various cat houses every day for a week and I can't tell you how wonderful Best Friends is. The work they do to eliminate unnecessary euthanasia and to help animals everyone else has given up on is incredible. I wish there were more ... more »

I felt that this was a very good organization at first. However, they provide money donated by others in instances that deception and unlawful actions take place. I wrote to them about San Antonio, Texas - Animal Care Services (ACS) unlawful acts that cause the deaths of many animals. Best Friends... more »
