Can you imagine an America where no pet is killed in a shelter again simply for being unwanted? We can. Led by Best Friends Animal Society, the NKLA initiative is poised to serve as a model for how the entire nation can become no-kill, with no pet ever having to die in a shelter again simply because they do not have a home. Since NKLA launched, the City of Los Angeles’ total save rate increased from 57.7% in 2011 to 89.7% in 2018. Join us. Together, we can Save Them All®.
