Best Friends Animal Society - Los Angeles Programs
No-Kill Los Angeles(NKLA) Led by Best Friends Animal Society, NKLA is a coalition of animal rescue organizations, city shelters and passionate individuals dedicated to ending the killing of healthy and treatable pets in L.A. shelters. The plan is straightforward. Provide spay/neuter services where they are needed most so fewer animals go into shelters, and increase adoptions through the combined efforts of the NKLA coalition so more animals come out of the shelters and go into new homes.

Pup My Ride Pup My Ride's mission is simple: get dogs out of local shelters to rescues and communities where they are most likely to find their forever homes. In some areas of the country, dogs are killed by the thousands either because they are no longer productive breeders for puppy mill operators or because they were unlucky enough to land in an overpopulated shelter. In other parts of the country, shelters and rescue groups can't provide enough of those types of dogs to keep up with demand. We deliver the pups to local partners with highly successful adoption programs capable of finding homes for many dogs at a time. To date, more than 5,000 pups have successfully found their homes through Pup My Ride.
Fostering If you love pets but aren't ready to adopt, opening your home as a foster is a great way to help out. We've tailored our foster program to make it as easy as possible, and give you the support you need. As long as you can provide a temporary place to sleep, water, exercise, and love, we will provide food and supplies, veterinary care, and any support and guidance you need. You will also receive endless love from your foster pet, and the satisfaction of helping an animal in need! Best Friends will work with you to find the best match possible for your home and lifestyle.
