The Goal

It’s an exciting time for the animals of New York City, and the people who love them.

Compassionate individuals, shelters and other animal welfare organizations are working together to create a brighter, safer future for homeless pets in the city and throughout the nation.

The new Best Friends Pet Adoption Center, which opened this past spring, serves as both a no-kill mission center and a community hot spot for finding a new best friend. Complete with interactive displays, maps of national no-kill efforts and a state-of-the-art kitten nursery, the center showcases lifesaving efforts, both big and small, currently taking place in the city and across the country.

Best Friends is committed to helping New York serve as a model for other communities on the path to no-kill. But New York is not the only city working to save all healthy, adoptable cats and dogs. We are leading a nationwide movement to help America reach no-kill by the year 2025, and communities of all sizes are uniting to save the lives of homeless pets. However, we can’t do it alone.

Join us to celebrate the lifesaving progress being made in New York City, and to help end the killing of dogs and cats in our nation’s shelters by 2025.

Join us and help make history. Together, we will Save Them All.

About Best Friends Animal Society

Best Friends Animal Society is a leading national animal welfare organization dedicated to ending the killing of dogs and cats in America's shelters. In addition to running lifesaving programs in partnership with more than 2,000 animal welfare groups across the country, Best Friends has regional centers in New York City, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Salt Lake City, and operates the nation's largest no-kill sanctuary for companion animals. Founded in 1984, Best Friends is a pioneer in the no-kill movement and has helped reduce the number of animals killed in shelters nationwide from 17 million per year to about two million. That means there are still nearly 5,500 dogs and cats killed every day in shelters, just because they don’t have safe places to call home. We are determined to get that number to zero by the year 2025. Working collaboratively with shelters, rescue groups, other organizations and you, we will end the killing and Save Them All.
