My only sadness about Best Friends Animal Society and its sanctuary in Kanab UT is that not everyone is aware of the effort, excellence and enthusiasm by these dedicated animal lovers and caregivers. Multiple visits, volunteering at the sanctuary, continues to reinforce my admiration for the professional staff and their ceaseless efforts to affect the attitude and behavior of the animals and birds under their care. Their mission, "No More Homeless Pets" is woven into the fabric of their operations and mindsets. The flow of volunteers visiting the sanctuary, including myself, quickly learn that love and best intentions are not adequate to improve the lives of these smallest of God;s creatures. Instead, I learned about patience and persistence as well as relying on the expertise of the Best Friends professionals: if I wanted to make an impact upon animals who still are wary of humans, due to past experiences. Stimulated by my experiences there, and informed and educated by Best Friends sponsored Workshops, I re-enter my own community with commitment to aid local Shelters in any way, too.
