We make the most change when we work together, which is why we formed the Best Friends 2025 Action Team.

The 2025 Action Team is working alongside everyone here at Best Friends to make the entire country no-kill in 2025. And we want you to be part of it. Join this community-driven, grassroots movement to help save the lives of dogs and cats across the country.

About Best Friends

Best Friends Animal Society is working to save the lives of cats and dogs all across the country, giving pets second chances and happy homes.

Just a few short years ago, cats and dogs were killed in staggering numbers in this country simply because shelters didn't have the community support or the resources to save their lives. That number is now less than half a million per year, but there’s still work to do to ensure a bright future for every dog and cat in America. 

Best Friends operates the nation's largest no-kill sanctuary for companion animals and is committed to saving the lives of homeless pets by working with shelters and passionate people like you. Together, we will bring the whole country to no-kill in 2025. Together, we will Save Them All.
