April is Heartworm Awareness Month, and Best Friends is working together with people like you to find homes for pets transported from southern regions where heartworm is prevelant. It's easy to cure with the right medicine, care and love.

Save a life: Adopt a pet

By choosing to adopt a pet from a shelter, you are saving a life. Plus, no matter what type of dog or cat you’re looking for, you’re sure to find your new best friend at a shelter, where there are wonderful pets of every breed, size and age. You can also adopt from the Best Friends Lifesaving Center in Salt Lake City. Each pet at the center comes from a Utah shelter or our Kitten Nursery and is vaccinated, spayed or neutered, and microchipped before going to a new home.
