About Best Friends in New York

Best Friends Animal Society is on the ground in New York City, helping to save the lives of homeless pets, supporting other organizations in their efforts to make New York no-kill permanently and raising awareness about the nearly 5,500 dogs and cats killed every day in U.S. shelters. The Best Friends Pet Adoption Center in New York City serves as both a space for local pets to find homes, and an outlet for the national no-kill message, helping to spread the word about Best Friends’ efforts to lead the country to no-kill by 2025.

Located in the SoHo neighborhood, the center showcases adoptable animals from local shelters and rescue organizations, as well as the New York City open-admission shelter. Dogs and cats are housed in a playful, gallery-style setting designed to encourage interaction and help convey the challenges facing our country’s homeless pet population. The space also features interactive displays and maps to inspire and engage people from all around the country to work for no-kill in their own communities, and to help Save Them All.
