Best Friends Animal Society is committed to efficiency and transparency.

We communicate with our donors and prospective donors by email, postal mail, phone and other means, both to request contributions to our cause and to educate the public about Best Friends programs, volunteer opportunities and events across the United States. 

These efforts help advance our mission to end the killing of dogs and cats in shelters by 2025. As a result, in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), Best Friends allocates a portion of our fundraising costs to program services. 

As a nonprofit organization that is exempt from federal taxation, we ensure that donors’ money is spent as efficiently and effectively as possible, and we are committed to organizational financial transparency. View our nonprofit financial information.
