The Best Friends Pet Resource Center is a first-of-its-kind, fully reimagined shelter offering resources and services for both people and pets and breaks the mold of the antiquated facilities that have previously been the norm.
Designed without cages and kennels, the Pet Resource center is a community destination that connects people with adoptable pets, offers support for families to keep pets in homes and provides opportunities for animal lovers to help make the state of Arkansas, and the entire country, no-kill by 2025. This center represents the new model of how a community and shelter are intertwined for pet lifesaving.
Best Friends Animal Society is a leading animal welfare organization working to end the killing of dogs and cats in America’s shelters by 2025. Founded in 1984, Best Friends is a pioneer in the no-kill movement and has helped reduce the number of animals killed in shelters from an estimated 17 million per year to around 355,000. Best Friends runs lifesaving programs across the country, as well as the nation’s largest no-kill animal sanctuary.
Working collaboratively with a network of more than 4,200 animal welfare and shelter partners, and community members nationwide, Best Friends is working to Save Them All®. For more information, visit bestfriends.org.
To form a welcoming atmosphere for potential adopters, we worked with Best Friends to build the cutest Picture Flap display. The Picture Flap needed to fit into the design of the Bentonville center which is clad in creative graphics and pops of their signature orange. The open floor plan allows for ample sunlight to pour in, giving the wood lined ceiling a beautiful glowing texture that illuminates the entire space. The Picture Flap fits perfectly behind the reception desk as a beautiful welcome piece.
