The Best Friends Network, comprised of more than 2,300 public and private shelters, rescue groups, spay/neuter organizations and other animal welfare groups across all 50 states, is at the heart of the collaborative spirit that helps define Best Friends. 
We believe that each shelter and the community it serves has its own individual personality, just like each animal in its care. And because of that, each shelter deserves support and resources designed to address its specific lifesaving needs.  
Network partners have access to lifesaving resources: 
  • Animal Control officer training and support 
  • Community cat partnerships 
  • Events, grants and promotions 
  • Expert mentorship and resources 
  • Shelter and field assessments 
  • The Best Friends Digital Community
