Chief is this week’s Featured Adoptable Pet! This older gentleman (with the most adorable grey muzzle!) loves to be where the people are. He can be a bit shy at first, but in no time, he’ll give you his whole heart. He would love to find a calm and patient family to help him blossom. Could this senior sweetheart be your one and only companion?

If you would like to adopt Chief, submit your application HERE: http://bit.ly/AdoptChiefGP. He flies home for free anywhere in the U.S. or Canada! -abigail

For a puppy who previously lived outside and had little interaction with people, Jane has come a long, long way since arriving at Best Friends Animal Society - Dogtown just two months ago!

Learn how TLC from her caregivers (and lots of treats!) helped this heeler mix blossom into a happy, confident pup! -abigail
Now that she’s arrived at Best Friends, Jane no longer has to be scared.

Story
Tagline
National animal welfare organization working to end the killing in America's shelters. Together, we can Save Them All.
Introduction
This is the official Google Plus page for Best Friends Animal Society! Best Friends is a nonprofit organization building no-kill programs and partnerships all coordinated from our Kanab, Utah headquarters - the largest no-kill sanctuary for homeless companion animals.

Nearly 30 years ago, when Best Friends helped pioneer the no-kill movement, more than 17 million homeless pets were dying each year in our nation's shelters, according to the Shelter Pet Project (consisting of Humane Society of the United States, Maddie's Fund, and the Ad Council.). Today, that number is around four million unnecessary deaths annually - that is tremendous progress, but Best Friends is committed to reducing that number to zero. By implementing targeted spay/neuter and TNR programs to reduce the number of animals who enter shelters, and by increasing the number of people who adopt pets, we know we can end the killing. We know we can Save Them All.

For more information about Best Friends and how you can help Save Them All, visit our website: www.bestfriends.org.
