How Best Friends Animal Society Accomplishes Its No-Kill Goal

A graduate of the Medical College of Virginia, Dr. Mike Sagman practiced cosmetic and restorative dentistry for over 40 years before founding Dr. Mike Sagman is an animal rights activist and has been a lifelong supporter of the Best Friends Animal Society (BFAS).

The BFAS operates and supports a no-kill animal shelter. And also notes that over 2 million cats and dogs die annually in shelters throughout the United States. Working in collaboration with a network of animal welfare partners and groups, BFAS takes a three-pronged approach to achieving its no-kill goals.

1. Spaying and neutering. BFAS promotes the sterilization of animals and provides spaying and neutering services to decrease the number of animals born and then abandoned in shelters.

2. Pet adoption. BFAS encourages people to adopt pets from shelters instead of buying them from retail stores to help reduce the number of animals that may later be euthanized.

3. Event hosting. Alongside its partners, BFAS hosts a number of both local and national events. These include the Best Friends National Conference and Strut Your Mutt events, alongside regional super adoption events. Each brings together volunteers, community members, policy makers, and animal welfare representatives to focus on the issue of homeless animals.
