Review for Best Friends Animal Society, Kanab, UT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Best Friends is a godsend for animals. It provides a loving forever home for many animals. I was worried about volunteering after visiting other animal shelters. Best Friends was totally different, filled with people who really care about the animals and appreciate the volunteers. Our favorite place was Rescue Village, with all the rabbits. We really liked Dave and Terry (I think Terry), who give it their all each day and know all the
rabbits, their diagnoses and idiosyncrasies. I am proud to have volunteered, will do so again. My husband and I live in Florida, and when we decided to work this summer we
Oochose to work at Ruby's RV Park, specifically close to Kanab so we could volunteer.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

We volunteered at Old Friends and met a couple of dogs that we fell in love with. We were so happy to see that one of them was adopted between visits. He was a special needs dog for which the caregivers were able to find a good home. We also fell in love with Rhubarb, a dog at the Clubhouse. Everyone coming in loved the dog, petting and hugging him. Putting him in a walking cart every day is not easy, but the caregivers do it and make it a huge game each step he takes.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I didn't see the need for any changes.
