The No-Kill Los Angeles Coalition (NKLA) is an initiative of Best Friends Animal Society® with the goal of turning Los Angeles into the largest no-kill city in the nation. NKLA's plan is straightforward - to provide spay/neuter services where it is needed most so fewer animals go into shelters, and to increase adoptions so more animals come out of the shelters and go into new homes. Even if you're not in LA, there's still ways that you can help.
A small $10 donation can help feed a pet for a week. You can also easily give $10 via mobile phone by texting the word NKLA to 50555. Check out NKLA.org to see how you can help.
