Best Friends Animal Society
August 17, 2011
I visited Best Friends in 2006. The sanctuary is beautiful and all the animals I saw appeared happy and healthy. It is great to see a place where special needs animals are not turned away or euthanized. It was also nice to see that there is an area maintained for rehab of local wildlife. Allowing members of the public to visit and volunteer helps spread the word about animal needs and also benefits the sanctuary financially. I voluteered in the rabbit area, which at the time did seem in need of expansion, but I understand that it has been renovated since then.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my visit to the sanctuary. I hope someday I may be able to adopt an animal fromo the facility.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
increase marketing in the area, for example, Las Vegas, to increase awareness of the sanctuary and encourage more people to visit/volunteer. Even in nearby cities, many people were unaware of the sanctuary.
General Member of the Public & I provided husbandry in the rabbit house and took a tour of the sanctuary.
