Best Friends Weekend June 30-July 2

Best Friends Weekend June 2023


Pets are loyal best friends to come home to, plus these furry companions offer unlimited snuggles and unconditional love.

It’s true, pets make our lives better. And right now, while shelters around the country are currently over capacity, you can make a lifesaving difference. Make this the summer we give them all a soft place to land when you open your home and heart to a pet.

When you adopt a pet, you save two lives

By adopting, you give one lucky pet a home and create space for another pet to be rescued.

Right now, more pets than ever are entering shelters that are over capacity and short-staffed. Angel’s Wish can only help these pets in shelters if we have an open foster home for them to go to. You can help by adopting a pet from Angel’s Wish, a Best Friends Network Partner, during the national adoption weekend, June 30–July 2. (Looking for a dog or don’t live nearby anymore? Find more partners here). Preview many of our adoptable kitties on our website, with more coming online during the week. We’re expecting 100+ available cats and kittens between our two adoption events!

Reduced Adoption Fees All Weekend!

Thanks to Best Friends Animal Society, adoption fees will be reduced to help more animals find homes!

Adoption fees for this weekend only are:

Single Forget-Me-Not: $25
Pair or Trio of Forget-Me-Nots: $50

***Reduced adoption fees extended through July 4th for Forget-Me-Nots only! Almost all available for adoption by appointment!** 


Forget-Me-Nots are cats and kittens that have been with us longer than average. It could be because they are a bonded pair (or trio!), are a little bit shy, or have FIV. Maybe they had a medical concern that took us a while to work through. Sometimes, though, we have no idea what is taking so long! These kitties all deserve love. Don’t let them be forgotten! Most available for adoption by appointment!

Kittens (up to six months):
Single Kitten $100
Pair of Kittens $175

Juveniles (six months up to ten months):
Single Juvenile: $75
Pair of Juveniles: $125

Adults (ten months and over):
One Adult: $50
Two Adults: $75

Special adoption pricing applies this weekend only and cats must be adopted and go home from the adoption event.

Looking to adopt? 

Adoption applications should be submitted as soon as possible to give our volunteers time to approve them before the weekend. If you haven’t applied in the last four months, please complete a new application. Only pre-approved adopters will be able to visit animals at this event.
