Best Friends Save them All

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

Best Friends Animal Society takes a stance on a variety of issues across many aspects of the animal welfare movement that are deemed to be important to not only the society but to the members and partner rescue organizations. For so many animals, it was the beginning of a miracle. It was the 1980s. Shelters across America routinely killed cats and dogs as the primary method of handling unwanted pets. Around 17 million animals perished every year. Older, sick and problem animals were the first to go. Then, a group of friends began taking some of those “unadoptables” to a safe haven to heal. With proper care and patience, the vast majority of these animals found loving forever families. The remaining animals spent the rest of their days romping in the new sanctuary.

Sponsor an animal! Students can vote on an animal to sponsor and support. As a class, if you can raise $25 or more, you can send a special e-card or a printable card that lets your loved animal know there’s a very lucky animal who’s awfully grateful. You can choose to sponsor a dog, cat, horse, pig, goat or bird from the Sanctuary. This would give students an opportunity to see the animal that they are helping, and they can realize that it’s more than just cats and dogs that need help.
