An event to help homeless pets and support a no-kill future

Together at last year’s benefit, we raised nearly $500,000, making a huge difference for the animals. Those funds went straight to work increasing the number of pets finding homes, decreasing the number of pets entering enter animal shelters, supporting our nearly 3,000 network partners in all 50 states, and so much more.

One day soon, we will see a day where every pet is safe and loved. But only if we work together. Join us April 6 and help Save Them All.


Can't attend the benefit?

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 2,800 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 an estimated 17 million per year to around 733,000. That means there are still about 2,000 dogs and cats killed every day in shelters, just because they don't have safe places to call home. We are determined to bring the country to no-kill by the year 2025. Working collaboratively with shelters, rescue groups, other organizations and you, we will end the killing and Save Them All.
