The mission of Best Friends is to bring about a time when there are No More Homeless Pets. We do this by demonstrating and promoting exemplary animal care and building community programs and partnerships.

While the number of dogs and cats being killed in shelters has been reduced significantly since Best Friends began its work 27 years ago—there is still much more work to do. The next phase of the No More Homeless Pets mission will be to bring the number down to essentially zero. But getting there will take innovative efforts from within the animal welfare world and more importantly, the commitment and dedication of everyone who has a pet or cares about animals. By supporting our mission, you're helping to save the lives of millions of homeless pets. Visit us at

More than half the world's kids live in poverty — that's a big problem. But to put it in perspective, we could give every child in the world an education for $39 billion — $17 billion LESS than Americans spend every year on their PETS. So, yeah! We CAN make a difference! To help in the movement to eradicate poverty, Children International invests in child-development programs as the most effective way to break the cycle of poverty. Our unique, global approach provides kids with three essential elements:

• A team of caring people who inspire, encourage and support them: local doctors, dentists, coaches and caring staff who really know our kids, plus a remarkable group of committed volunteers (8,000+ worldwide!) and 300,000 supporters!

• A safe place: 75+ community centers located where our kids live — true oases of hope with clean, uplifting spaces that include medical offices, libraries, computer labs, tutoring areas, meeting spaces and playgrounds. Our centers are unique because few organizations become such integral parts of their communities, allowing the kids and their families to truly own their transformations.

• A path out of poverty that addresses the issues of health education, empowerment and employment through country-relevant and age-specific programs and services:
