Be An Angel!

Animal lovers can share their holiday spirit again this year by donating food, toys and treats for homeless dogs and cats through Best Friends Pet Care's 10th Annual Angel Tree campaign. Every Best Friends location is collecting donations to local animal shelters and rescues.

Best Friends launched the program ten years ago, inviting clients to purchase and donate toys and treats for the shelter pets. The program has grown each year, providing hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of food, toys and pet care products to more than 75 different shelters and rescue organizations across the U.S.

The holiday season can be a difficult time for our animal shelters because donations of food and funds fall off when regular supporters are preoccupied with the holidays. The poor economy over the past two years has made matters even worse for all non-profits, including shelters. The Angel Tree program helps many shelters get through the holiday season.

The Angel Tree is put up in the lobby of each Best Friends Pet Care center during Thanksgiving week each year. It is decorated with paper ornaments providing information about needy dogs and cats being cared for by local shelters and rescues. Pet lovers are invited to select a card from the tree and donate the listed holiday gifts. The company supplements customer donations with large bags of food and other supplies.

In addition, all of the pets featured on the tree are available for adoption - and many have found homes over the years thanks to the program.

Donations can be made by visiting or calling a Best Friends near you by the end of the year.

  2. The bitter irony is that it's during times of economic strain when shelter services are most needed; pets are so often the silent victims of economic strain, abandoned when people have to make budget cuts or even relocate. Kudos to Best Friends for supporting these vital services!
