Pets are part of the family. The volunteers of Best Friends of Baker, Inc. are the temporary family and adoption agents for the animals of Baker County that need temporary or permanent homes. Volunteers foster, advocate for, and help find adoptive homes for pets.
Best Friends of Baker, Inc is a non-profit 501(c)(3) volunteer organization that serves all of Baker County Oregon, located in the northeastern part of the state. All donations made to Best Friends of Baker, Inc. are tax deductible. We also network with other animal rescue organizations in and out of the state of Oregon, and we are connected with www.Petfinder.com
We advocate for the needs of domestic pets, particularly dogs and cats. We promote respect, dignity, humane treatment and responsible population control through education, spaying and neutering, medical needs, shelter, foster care, and thoughtful placement and adoption of all the animals. Our advocacy is greatly enhanced by the presence of members within in and outside of our community. Interested in becoming a supportive or active member?
We serve Baker County, Oregon with the following resources
● Foster homes for pets
● Adoption services for pets

● Resource for any pet question
The entire community benefits from working with Best Friends of Baker, Inc. Some of our partners include: the local domestic violence shelter to find temporary shelter when victims of domestic violence must seek safety; local law enforcement for temporary placement of pets whose humans are hospitalized or Incarcerated; rescue of animals who end up in shelter because of abandonment, abuse, death of an owner, or other circumstances; and out-of-county shelters needing pet placement or looking for pets.
We'll jump through hoops to match pets with good homes. Best Friends is here to help and our volunteers would like to hear from you with any pet question or concern.
Dear Friends of Best Friends,
Due to the lack of volunteers, our board of directors has determined that we are unable, presently, to continue our core mission of animal rescue and placement. We intend to meet again in February and assess our situation. In the meantime, we will maintain our office at Basche Sage and our storage of pet food. We will remain an active—if somewhat less so—nonprofit corporation. We intend to continue to make pet food available for those in need. Donations will continue to be necessary in this interim period. We hope you will not forget us and we will be back on line as soon as possible.
