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 625,000. That means there are still about 1,700 dogs and cats killed every day in shelters, just because they don’t have safe places to call home. They are determined to bring the country to no-kill by the year 2025. That number should be zero.
That's why I created this fundraiser for my 50th birthday! My friends and family will be celebating at the Sanctuary with me over Labor Day weekend by volunteering to help the animals. I've been visiting Best Friends for over 25 years, since I first learned about the nation's largest no-kill animal sanctuary from a contact in Cleveland.
When you donate to my fundraiser, you'll be helping around 1,600 dogs, cats, bunnies, birds, horses, and other barnyard animals who on any given day reside at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. Plus, you'll be helping to save the lives of homeless pets all across the country through lifesaving adoption and spay/neuter programs, no-kill initiatives, and more.
Thank you for donating in honor of my 50th birthday to help save animals' lives. Might I suggest $50 dollars to honor my 50 years on this planet? Together, we will Save Them All.
