Help save homeless pets in NJ
Shelters near you need help to save more lives. In 2020, nearly 2,918 dogs and cats were killed in animal shelters across New Jersey, but together with your help, we’re changing that.
Best Friends is working with animal welfare organizations and stakeholders statewide to save every pet who can be saved and reach no-kill through New Jersey by 2025. Your local shelter is counting on your help. Now is the time to get involved and make a lifesaving difference.

Best Friends focuses on cats in New Jersey
Best Friends is supporting NJ S1034, a bill focused on saving cats. This bill would allow trap-neuter-return for community (aka stray or feral) cats in New Jersey and establish a state fund for spay and neuter. We are also working with Associated Humane Societies to conduct a full shelter assessment on all three of their locations.
