Best Friends Animal Society is the only national animal welfare organization focused exclusively on ending the killing of dogs and cats in America’s shelters. A leader in the no-kill movement, Best Friends runs the nation’s largest no-kill sanctuary for companion animals, as well as lifesaving programs in in partnership with more than 1,400 rescue groups and shelters across the country. In New York Best Friends hosts wide-scale events to aid local humane organizations and works with Animal Care Centers of NYC on a foster care and adoption program to help reduce the number of shelter deaths in the City. Since its founding in 1984, Best Friends has helped reduce the number of animals killed in shelters nationwide from 17 million per year to an estimated 4 million. Best Friends has the knowledge, technical expertise and on-the-ground network to end the killing and Save Them All®.
More than 9,000 animals are killed in U.S. shelters every day, simply because they don’t have homes. Many people don’t realize that when they buy a dog from a pet store or on the Internet, that dog most likely came from a puppy mill, a “factory farm” for dogs. In puppy mills, dogs live in small cages, often in the minimum legal size allowed (only six inches larger than the dog on all sides) and female dogs are bred as frequently as possible.
When you adopt, you’re not only refusing to support puppy mills, you’re saving a life and giving an animal in need the second chance he or she deserves.
