Make the coming holiday season count double for the homeless animals.
Each year just before the holiday season, Best Friends Animal Society runs an annual fund drive to make sure all homeless pets too have a wonderful holiday. This is just one of the miracles that happen each day at Best Friends.
Your generosity is truly life-changing for the many homeless animals that need help. When you give to Best Friends from now until November 14, 2014, your gift is matched dollar for dollar. Last year your gifts were outstanding and the rewards were bountiful.
1) More than 5,600 harder to place pets found homes last year due to this very special fund drive.
2) More than 1,100 spay/neuter surgeries were performed in a single month, including a record 102 surgeries in one day.
3) Some 1,600 newborn kittens were given care and nurturing at the Best Friends kitten nurseries in Salt Lake City and Los Angeles. Best Friends even helped set up a new kitten program in a Philadelphia shelter that needed help. They were able to secure a 97 percent decrease in the number of kittens they were killed compared to the previous year.
This important drive is just another wonderful aspect of Best Friends Animal Society that has been providing shelter and even lifelong homes for animals for the past 30 years.
Best Friends started with a small group of people who loved animals and believed that no animal should be euthanized just because they were sick or homeless. Nestled in the foothills of Knab, Utah, Angel Canyon is the home to over 2000 animals and the symbol of survival for all the homeless animals in the world.
They receive donations all year in support of homeless animals of every kind, even horses, rabbits and birds. Known for their wide diversity of animals, they need our support all year long. Supporting this special holiday effort, gives double to the animals as each gift is matched dollar for dollar earning twice the donation.
Best Friends works continually to help animals making miracles like those below happen every day.
More than 73,000 formerly homeless cats and dogs in Los Angeles were placed into loving homes thanks to the help of Best Friends Animal Society and their No-Kill Los Angeles Coalition Partners.
Passage of a bill to outlaw breed discrimination in South Dakota made it possible for pit bull terriers to safely live with their families.
A Baltimore animal shelter participating in a Community Cats Projects in partnership with Best Friends and PetSmart Charities found empty cat cages for the first time ever in the shelter.
Working to save the animals goes on daily and yearly. It is because of animal lovers and people all across the United States that Best Friends is able to continue its programs and operations.
Check out their website and make your donation today. The animals will thank you from the bottom of their hearts.
