I really love cats and visiting the cats at Best Friends in Bentonville often. I also sew catnip toys and donate to the cats, they like them. In lieu if gifts for my birthday I want to raise money to help the shelter for the cats and other animals.
Best Friends Animal Society is working to open the Best Friends Pet Resource Center in Northwest Arkansas, designed entirely around integrated services for both ends of the leash. The center will be a best-in-class model of a community-supported shelter that demonstrates how best to serve pets and communities across the country while filling critical local service gaps in Northwest Arkansas. Scheduled to open next summer, in 2022, the vibrant space will improve the lives of families and pets in the community by aligning with Northwest Arkansas’s legacy as a community that pursues bold, innovative solutions that set the region apart locally and nationally. It will be the largest facility for animals in the region and will serve an estimated 13,000 dogs and cats each year. The approximately 20,000-square foot center will be a bright, open, and inviting community destination with indoor and outdoor spaces for people to interact with the animals, and with each other as visitors, volunteers, and potential adopters.
Best Friends Animal Society is the leading animal welfare organization working to end the killing of dogs and cats in America's shelters by 2025. Founded in 1984, Best Friends is a pioneer in the no-kill movement and has helped reduce the number of animals killed in shelters from an estimated 17 million per year to around 347,000. Best Friends runs lifesaving programs all across the country, as well as the nation's largest no-kill animal sanctuary. Working collaboratively with a network of more than 3,600 animal welfare and shelter partners, and community members nationwide, Best Friends is working to Save Them All®.
That's why I created this fundraiser.
Thank you for donating to help save animals' lives. Together, we will Save Them All.
