    If you're looking to rescue a dog (or cat) this is a great place to visit. NKLA is a movement by the Best Friends Society and has a great adoption center that is very clean and pleasant to visit. There are animals there from over 85 different rescue organizations and they each have a nice clean area to wait in. You can take them for a walk or there is a nice social are for you to connect in. The great thing about going here is knowing that there is not a timer ticking on the animals lives you're visiting. Keep up the great work NKLA!

NKLA is the premiere adoption center in Los Agneles and it was created as an initiative for Best Friends Animal Society. The goal is to ending 100% of the killing of healthy and treatable pets in Los Angeles. Located in West Los Angeles it features a collection of dogs from NKLA Coalition partners which is comprised of over 80 independent dog rescue organizations from the Greater LA Area.

NKLA (No-Kill Los Angeles) is an initiative led by Best Friends Animal Society that brings together passionate individuals, city shelters and an entire coalition of animal welfare organizations to end the killing of dogs and cats in shelters throughout Los Angeles. Now, Los Angeles, the nation’s second largest city, is just inches away from achieving no-kill.

When Best Friends launched the No-Kill Los Angeles (NKLA) initiative in 2012, only 56% of the dogs and cats in the city’s shelters were making it out alive. But thanks to the hard work of so many, including the entire NKLA Coalition, Mayor Garcetti, Los Angeles Animal Services, our fabulous local community and devoted volunteers, we are thrilled to announce a sustained save rate of 90.49% for 2020.

Led by Best Friends, the NKLA coalition has enhanced life-saving through client-service driven, high volume adoptions at the Best Friends Pet Adoption Center and NKLA Pet Adoption Center, as well as large scale adoption events; high-profile and comprehensive marketing campaigns and strategic, community-based low-cost spay/services.

Best Friends is taking this collaborative model and expanding it nationwide, leading an effort to take the country no kill by 2025. And LA is proof that we can accomplish this with the support of shelters, rescue groups and communities across the United States.
