Adoptable Pets of the Week

This holiday season, when you adopt a kitty from Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, your new cat gets a free ride to your hometown. But hurry, space is limited! Crate and air travel are free for the first 30 cats who get adopted. Application must be received by December 21st. Adoption fees still apply, except for “experienced” dogs and cats age 8 or older -- adoption fees are waived for senior sweeties through the end of the year!!



A 100 percent lap cat! 

This is the beautiful girl you're looking for, and she so wants to be found! Twinkle is the snuggliest, warmest, friendliest cat. She loves to be petted. And if you're in the mood for some fun, she can be playful, too!

Twinkle lost her home because her people moved. She was born in 2006, and doesn't have any known health issues of any kind. Well, her eyes are a little watery sometimes, but that's not much of a health issue!

Twinkle is just dying to find a home. She seems fine with other cats if you happen to already have one. And she would make the warmest, most lovely friend.




She was once somebody's wonderful dog and wants to be again! Sadly, when her person became ill, Ginger became homeless. And she's such a nice girl. A real tail-wagger, she's friendly but confident enough not to be needy. She'll absolutely love you if you'll take her on a walk. Ginger is healthy. She's on one medication as well as a prescription diet for food allergies, but that's it!  

She is extremely easygoing with other dogs, very emotionally secure. But she's very sad to be on her own, without a home. And born in 2006, she's competing against some younger dogs. She sure hopes somebody will pick her! Ginger could stand to lose a couple pounds. Nothing some wonderful walks with you wouldn't cure. Please reach out to her if her sweet face touches you.

Best Friends adopts to all of the United States and Canada. Please contact Best Friends Animal Society right here. See all the animals that need homes at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary.

Hi Ellen, I’m Brittany, a sixteen year old from Pittsburgh, PA and I have seen the grace of innocence. I have met angels but not the kind you would imagine. They have no fluffy, feathery wings but they do wear a fluffy coat. They are not clothed in shades of white but they have specks of white mixed in with their orange and black fur. They are as pure as fresh snow. They can tell no lies nor commit no crime. They do what they have to do in order to survive and stick together. I have had since august of this year three stray male cats living on my porch; one black and white cat that I have come to call Moo for his color and two orange and white cats that I have rightfully named Einstein for his brains and Courage for his courageous attitude. My family and I have feed them and cared for them everyday since. They are in truth little miracles despite their situation. They are the friendliest cats I have ever known. Each day they have made it a habit to paw at our windows, walk us to our cars, greet me when I get home from school and follow me as I take my dog for walks. My family and I have repeatedly tried to find these three cats a home with no luck. I am worried for their safety, winter is coming and the streets of my neighborhood are no place for innocence. I am scared for them and writing you today to express that fear and hoping you can change it. I am old enough to no that there is no Santa Clause but wise enough to know there are people out there that embody Saint Nick’s kind soul. For Christmas this year I could care less about presents all I desire is a place that Moo, Einstein and Courage can call home with owners who will care and love them as much as I do. So please Ellen help me find these strays a home. Innocence should be nurtured. The strays of this world should be loved. Angels should be cared for and no one on Christmas should go without a home.
