This no-kill shelter in California is very near and dear to the hearts of both Robert Sarzo and his wife Avery Goldberg. Please consider supporting this worthy cause in whatever way you can!
“Our Goal is to build no-kill shelters and homes where animals can live in healthy surroundings until they are adopted”
Our mission is to protect the health and safety of animals by providing charitable assistance in our no-kill shelter for all animals. Bestow daily care, rehabilitate homeless, displaced, or injured animals; to find such animals’ good homes; and to educate the public as to how to bring about a time when the shelters are only empty cages and unwanted animals will never be destroyed needlessly.
Millions of pets end up in shelters each year due to:
Divorce or Breakup
Minor Behavior Problems
TRAGICALLY, 4 MILLION of these homeless pets are killed each year in America’s shelters.
More than Seven animals per minute are killed in shelters unnecessarily. That means more than 9000 animals per day.
What Best Friends is Doing
Best Friends works in local areas across the country to help build life-saving programs and reduce shelter deaths. Current local program cities include L.A., Salt Lake City, and New York.
Best Friends hosts many events throughout the year to raise money for local shelters and to teach other organizations and rescuers how they can become no-kill. More
our national initiatives focus on animals most likely to enter America’s shelter system – cats, castoffs from puppy mills, and pit-bull-terrier-type dogs.
Located in Kanab, UT, Best Friends Animal Sanctuary is the largest no-kill animal sanctuary in the country. Open to visitors and volunteers year-round.
