Best Friends Animal Society
August 29, 2011
Best Friends has to be heaven on Earth to the animals that inhabit the sanctuary,,I have been there twice and if one were to ask me for one word to describe my experience,,it would be "spiritual", The beauty of the surroundings mixed with the over and above dedication of those who work there make for an unbelievable experience,,,who else would have a pot belly pig on an overnight? Who else would have men sleeping with their arms around Michael Vick's dogs so they could be socialized? It is a labor of love from these people,,it is a mind altering experience for those who volunteer with these glorious animals,,Wish I lived closer but I do sponsor an animal in their Guardian Angel program,,do yourself and your family a big favor and visit, volunteer and come away in love with the beasties that inhabit Best Friends.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
simply being there and seeing the love and dedication of the people that work there with all the different animals. They have rescued Katrian victims,,flown animals from Beirut and closer to home, hoarding problems and cats in Parup which they took and cared for,,their goal is to try to find homes for these animals and they do,,even the ones with special needs.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I can honestly say I would make no changes at all,,,they have grown tremendously in the past 25 years and am perfectly capable of finding new and improved ways of dealing with all they face.
Volunteer & I worked with the cats for two days, cleaning and socializing with my two daugters, then spent a day with the dogs which was an experience into itself!.
