Animals Best Friends is a 501C3 non-profit organization that is run solely by volunteers. We are proud to be licensed in the state of Missouri.

Animals Best Friends (ABF) was started in March of 1995 with 6 volunteers.  By July of 2004, the organization was able to purchase a vet's office for their rescue facility.  Monthly meetings take place there and dogs and cats are housed there.

We promote the importance of spay/neuter and educate the public on providing basic medical care and humane treatment of animals.

All of our animals are spayed/neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped and heartworm and flea prevention given. Any health problems are cared for and specialty vet services used as needed.

Due to the overwhelming number of calls received from the public needing assistance with owner surrender and stray cats and kittens, we knew we needed to take action.  In April of 2013, we began the Animals Best Friends Community Cat Program.  The cats in this program reside at Petsmart, located at 39th St and Bolger Rd in Independence, MO, until they are adopted.  All cats and kittens there are spayed/neutered, up to date on shots and microchipped.  Please visit Petsmart to see the available cats and kittens, as they are not listed on our website.
