Dawn Pettine Memorial Fundraiser

As many of you know, Dawn was a huge animal lover and a big supporter of Best Friends Animal Sanctuary.  The family would like to continue Dawn's tradition of giving by asking that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to this Memorial Fundraiser in Dawn's honor.  We appreciate all of the love and support of our family and friends.  Please join us in memorializing Dawn with a gift in her honor.


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. That number should be zero. And if we work together, it can be.  We are determined to bring the country to no-kill by the year 2025.


That's why we created this Memorial fundraiser in Dawn's honor.


When you donate to the Dawn Pettine Memorial 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 to help save animals' lives. Together, we will Save Them All.
