This rescue service works toward stabilizing the feral cat population and offers adoption services. They use non-lethal trap-neuter-return methods to keep the population down. They provide shelter and find new homes for suitable animals. They sterilize about 300 cats a year, about 200 of which can't be domesticated; the animals are vaccinated and neutered and placed in managed cat colonies. The 100 that can be domesticated are housed in volunteer homes and then put up for adoption at a series of events.

Best friends is a Soho operation that is both a space for local pets to find homes and an outlet for the national “no-kill” message. They showcase adoptable animals in a playful, gallery-style setting that is clean and well-maintained. The staff is passionate and caring and some of the animals live in “cat condos” while waiting for a new, loving home.
