Multiyear commitment by fast-growing financial services company to help support Best Friends’ mission to achieve no-kill at every animal shelter throughout the country
Credit One Bank, one of the nation’s fastest-growing issuers of credit cards, has committed to donating $1 million as part of a new partnership with Best Friends Animal Society, a national nonprofit dedicated to saving the lives of dogs and cats in America’s shelters. Credit One Bank’s donation will help Best Friends grow operations and outreach across the country to animal shelters and rescue groups, as well as promote foster, adoption, advocacy, and spay-and-neuter practices.
In the coming months, Credit One Bank will introduce a co-branded credit card with Best Friends designed for pet lovers. In addition to the $1 million commitment by Credit One Bank, a percentage of every purchase made with the credit card will be donated to Best Friends, making it easy for customers to give back to the animal welfare nonprofit.
“Our partnership with Best Friends Animal Society is one example of Credit One Bank’s commitment to our customers that we care about the issues and aspects of their lives they hold near and dear to their hearts,” said John Coombe, senior vice president of Credit One Bank. “We’re honored to help do our part and look forward to giving our customers a way to make their everyday spending go further in positively impacting the lives of pets across this country.”
“Best Friends is incredibly grateful for Credit One Bank’s generous donation and commitment to our efforts to making America no-kill by 2025,” said Julie Castle, chief executive officer, Best Friends Animal Society. “Credit One Bank is helping us lead this important, lifesaving charge and truly exemplifies Best Friends’ motto that by working together, we can save them all.”
