Review for Best Friendsc/O La Public Library Science Andtechnology Depts, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I first leaned about Best Friends many years ago. As a volunteer with various animal welfare organizations, it seemed as if everyone i worked with knew about Best Friends and admired the organization. And, of course, I watched National Geographic Dogtown series featuring Best Friends rescue of Michael Vicks' dogs. Each episode increased my admiration for Best Friends. They are undoubtedly one of the few if not the only animal welfare organization that has the expertise to rehabilitate these dogs. But beyond their expertise is the kindness and compassion that is so evident. Several of my fellow volunteers who have visited Best Friends describe it as a wonderful and special place. I intended to visit myself---even had the plane ticket-- but due to some health concerns at the time I was not able to come. Friends who have visited jokingly say that maybe it was a good thing that I had to cancel my trip because if I went , I would never want to leave. Seriously, these are the absolutely glowing remarks I hear. My friends and I all agree that we look forward to receiving Best Friends' magazine because it makes you feel good to know that such a place exits and is dedicated to helping all animal regardless how much medical attention and care they need. When deciding which animal welfare organization to give my granddaughter (she is ten) a membership Best Friends immediately came to mind. So for Xmas I gave her a Best Friends' t-shirt, a membership and a copy of the book "Best Friends: The True Story of the World's Most Beloved Animal Sanctuary". After reading the book she asked if we could visit sometime, so hopefully the two of us will be making the trip to Angel canyon someday.
