Mission StatementMission Statement
The mission of the Best Friends Humane Society in Worth County is to raise public awareness of animal issues, promoting responsible pet ownership through education; promotion of pet spay and neuter programs to reduce the overpopulation of companion animals which leads to neglect, abuse and cruelty; and to adhere to an adoption program placing pets in loving, qualified homes; and to receive and manage money and property for these purposes.
In addition, the Best Friends Humane Society seeks to incorporate the Best Practices, wherever possible, as noted in the “Guidelines for Standards of Animal Care in Animal Shelters” by the Association of Shelter Veterinarians, 2010
