In Memory of Pets and Pet Lovers

There are many meaningful ways to remember a beloved pet or favorite person who has passed. Below, you can find ways to remember them, cope with the experience of loss and celebrate their life.

"I don't care how much time has gone by, you never forget their unconditional love and the joyful memories they gave you." – Donna, Best Friends member

Remembrance gifts: Make a gift in memory

By making a gift in memory of a pet or person, you provide a lifesaving second chance to homeless pets. Remembrance gifts go straight to work helping tens of thousands of dogs, cats and other pets at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary and through outreach and rescue programs all across the country.

Select how you'd like to start your memorial gift below. Make your secure gift online and then choose to notify an honoree by either sending an e-card or having Best Friends mail a card. You can also make your gift and select “no card needed.” After completing your gift, you can create a lasting memorial for the person or pet you are remembering on the Angels Rest online memorial page.

Create a memorial fundraiser

You can create a fundraising page in honor of a beloved pet or person in your life by using our personal fundraising tools. You’ll be able to easily send thank-you notes to your donors and share with your contacts using email and social media.
