Local Events

Best Friends Animal Society holds a number of flagship events in and around New York City throughout the year, including Strut Your Mutt and the Best Friends Benefit to Save Them All. 

In addition, we participate in numerous adoption events, partnerships with local businesses and awareness initiatives to raise awareness surrounding the importance of adoption and find loving homes for the animals in our care, and the care of our rescue partners. For more information on these local events, or to invite Best Friends to be part of your event in the tri-state area, please email NYEvents@bestfriends.org.
