Together, we can make sure there’s a family for every pet—and help keep pets in the loving homes they have.

By promoting pet adoption and spay/neuter, and supporting shelters and rescues in their efforts, we’re making sure pet owners get the support they need, so that no animal loses a home due to breed prejudices, lack of housing or access to pet services.

A lifelong friendship

The joys of the human-animal bond shouldn’t be reserved for more affluent people. Yet many Americans who adore their pets lack access to veterinary and pet care services. Inequity impacts millions of amazing people and pets—families like Lady Bird Worthy and her dog, Toby. Pets for Life helps close the gap.

Save a pet

Looking for an adoptable cat or dog to add to your family? Through the Shelter Pet Project, you can connect with your new friend and help homeless pets.

Fight pet overpopulation

We’ve made great progress in saving more pets, but millions still enter animal shelters and rescues every year. One way you can help is to have your pets spayed or neutered. Fewer animals in need of shelter will help local shelters save more lives, and spay/neuter also has health and behavioral benefits for your pet.
