another terrific charity – they got an A+ rating from charity watch and i’ve been impressed by the direct benefit the animals get. they do a good job getting into kill shelters to save adoptable animals, rehabilitate homeless pets, and collaborate with petsmart charities (another A+ rating) to really help get adoptable pets into good homes.
Nearly 30 years ago, when Best Friends helped launch and pioneer the no-kill movement, over 17 million homeless pets were dying in our nation’s shelters. Today, that number is down to around 4 million unnecessary deaths annually – that is tremendous progress, but Best Friends is committed to reducing that number to zero. It’s a mission that we call No More Homeless Pets. By partnering with local governments, grassroots organizations and passionate individuals, we are making big strides toward ending the unnecessary killing of shelter pets in the United States.
