Popular lesbian performer Jelena Jensen also selected Best Friends Animal Society in November, 2011, as did AVN Media Network Paul Fishbein in January, 2012. Haze's donation is dedicated to ensuring a time when there are no longer homeless pets.

"I chose this charity because I believe animals have a special place in everyone's lives," said Haze. "Before I started in porn, I volunteered at animal shelters in my home town and also assisted many animal rescues by fostering and rehoming rescued animals. When I was 18, I attended a trade school and received my certification as a Vet Assistant, working in many different clinics."
"I am now the proud doggy parent to two beautiful English Bulldogs," she continued. "Best Friends Animal Society stood out to me because they rescue and rehome animals from all walks of life, from dogs to cats, and even birds and pigs! I know this donation will be put to good use."
Best Friends Animal Society is guided by a simple philosophy: kindness to animals builds a better world for all. In the late 1980s, when Best Friends was in its early days, roughly 17 million dogs and cats were being killed in shelters every year. Despite the commitment of shelter workers to the animal in their care, the conventional belief was that little could be done to lower that terrible number. Best Friends' No More Homeless Pets campaign created a new vision: A grassroots effort to place dogs and cats who were considered "unadoptable" into good homes, and to reduce the number of unwanted pets through effective spay and neuter programs. Since then, the number of dogs and cats being destroyed in shelters has fallen to approximately 5 million a year. There has been much progress, but there is still much more to do. The work of Best Friends is supported entirely by the donations of its members. Through the generous hearts and hands of people like you, they can ensure animals who come into the care of Best Friends will never again be alone, hungry, sick, afraid, or in pain.
