1-800-PetMeds® To Partner With Best Friends Animal Society For #GivingTuesdayNow Donation Drive

On May 5th, 1-800-PetMeds® is teaming up with Best Friends Animal Society to support fundraising efforts that will impact the lives of thousands of homeless animals during this unprecedented time of COVID-19.

Around 2,200 homeless pets are killed in shelters across the United States each day. 1-800-PetMeds® is supporting Best Friends’ mission to end that by helping to provide veterinary services, community education, and other resources to help more animals find their forever homes.

Best Friends is the only national animal welfare organization dedicated to ending the killing of dogs and cats in America’s shelters. A leader in the no-kill movement, Best Friends runs the nation’s largest no-kill sanctuary for companion animals, adoption centers and spay and neuter facilities in Los Angeles and Salt Lake City as well as lifesaving programs in partnership with more than 1,400 rescue groups and shelters across the country.

1-800-PetMeds® will host a matching gift campaign on #GivingTuesdayNow to support the life-saving initiatives of Best Friends Animal Society®. 1-800-PetMeds® will match contributors’ donations on #GivingTuesdayNow up to $25,000. #GivingTuesdayNow will take place on Tuesday, May 5th, 2020.
