Nonprofit Spotlight: Best Friends Animal Society

Tuesday, June 8 is National Best Friend’s Day and we are highlighting Best Friends Animal Society, a nonprofit founded by best friends to care for abandoned animals in America.

“The mission of Best Friends Animal Society is to bring about a time when there are No More Homeless Pets. We do this by helping end the killing in America’s animal shelters through building community programs and partnerships all across the nation. We believe that by working together we can Save Them All.”

In celebration of Best Friends Day, Best Friends Animal Society has shared a list of ways we can celebrate and make a difference with animals wherever we live; full article HERE. Consider volunteering, fostering or adopting through a nonprofit who is working to save animals in your area or region! You can also give to a nonprofit to help them continue their impactful work, today we suggest a $10 donation (or more) to Best Friends Animal Society.

Best Friends Animal Society is more than just a nonprofit helping animals, it is a movement started by best friends with a big vision to change the world. Here is a glimpse of their story (read more HERE) “Back in 1984, a scrappy group of friends from far corners of the globe settled in a remote area of Utah’s high desert … and took the first steps to forever changing the future for pets in shelters. It’s the story of Best Friends, but it’s much more than the history of a spot on the map. This group of ordinary but passionate people believed that every pet has a story, too, each one worth saving, each life individual and important. Today, nearly four decades after they broke ground for a sanctuary in a remote region of the Southwest, achieving no-kill across the entire country is within reach.” The impact of Best Friends Animal Society is impressive, as they have seen a 58% reduction in needless animal deaths since 2016. These friends inspire us, when we have a shared vision and a heart to do good, friends can change the world!

In honor of two of the Uncommon Giving best friends (Milly and Duke) let’s awaken generosity together and support “man’s best friend!”
