The mission of Best Friends Animal Society is to bring about a time when there are No More Homeless Pets. We do this by helping end the killing in America's animal shelters through building community programs and partnerships all across the nation. We believe that by working together we can Save Them All.
So, you're ready to adopt your new best friend. Great! Here are a few important things to know about our adoption process:
No appointment needed! Stop by either the Best Friends Lifesaving Center in Mission Hills or the NKLA Pet Adoption Center in West LA during open hours (12-8 p.m.daily). Our adoption specialists are always more than happy to help you find your new best friend.
All adopters must be 18 years of age or older and must present valid/current government-issued identification at the time of adoption.
Prior to adopting a dog or cat from Best Friends, adopters will need the knowledge and consent of their landlord.
Most importantly, all adopters must be willing and able to spend the time and money necessary to provide training, medical treatment and proper care for their new pet.
Note: For long distance adoptions, adopter must visit the pet in person at our center and coordinate pet's transportation at their own cost.
