Best Friends Animal Society

Date/Time TBD

15321 Brand Blvd., Mission Hills



Best Friends is the largest no-kill organization in the United States, maintaining L.A.’s largest no-kill shelter, a 38,000-acre animal sanctuary in Utah, and providing support to over 1500 affiliated no-kill shelters and rescue organizations across the country. Working closely with the office of the Mayor of Los Angeles and Los Angeles Animals Services, Best Friends is also the founder of the NKLA (No-Kill Los Angeles) initiative, a coalition of animal welfare organizations, city shelters and passionate individuals dedicated to ending the killing of healthy and treatable pets in L.A. shelters. Their goal is to make L.A. an entirely no-kill city by 2014. Additional programs include Best Friends Super Adoptions (a coop­erative effort in which multiple animal groups across the country get together in a fun, festival-like atmosphere to adopt out hundreds of animals during a limited period of time), Best Friends Brigades (a team of people who help animals by offering their time to shelter and rescue groups on a project-by-project basis in the New York, Connecticut and New Jersey area), celebrity-driven national adoption PSAs, and a public animal help resource line. www.bestfriends.org

    Can't wait

    I've heard such wonderful things about this shelter, and I'm so excited to be attending. Bringing my mom along, too! Can't wait to see you soon!

    Hi, Renee. I actually had to postpone my LA appearance. The decision was made last week and I announced it on Homer's Facebook page; I'll be writing a blog post about it in a bit. I'll be at Best Friends LA in November and hope to see you then!
