No More Homeless Pets Los Angeles (NMHPLA) is a campaign that has been pulled together by Best Friends Animal Society and a team of local animal organizations. NMHPLA represents a commitment by Best Friends to lead and sponsor a comprehensive drive to take the City of Los Angeles to the no-kill benchmark of a 90% save rate of all animals entering LAAS shelters. We believe this can be achieved through a coalition of Los Angeles area rescue groups, an engaged public, increased and highly targeted spay/neuter programs and a focused commitment on the part of all who share this goal.
The NMHPLA Coalition is a partnership between Best Friends Animal Society, Los Angeles Department of Animal Services and partners from local animal welfare organizations aimed at decreasing euthanasia rates in the Los Angeles city shelters.
Best Friends provides a financial benefit in the form of a subsidy to our NMHPLA Coalition Partners for increased adoptions of LA city shelter animals. We are also funding targeted spay/neuter drives especially in under-served communities, and to expand on existing, effective proven programs. We believe that the systematic plan that we have developed is achievable with the commitment of resources that Best Friends is providing, the whole-hearted participation of LA Animal Services and the combined talent and focused effort of the rescue community. By working together, we will be able to realize our shared dream – an end to the needless killing of healthy and treatable LA shelter animals.
