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

Rating: 5 stars  

Absolutely amazing what this organization has done to save homeless animal lives in this country. Fighting for them on so many fronts in innovative ways, changing public perceptions about pitbulls ( see the documentary -The Champions), FIV & Community cats, medical innovations, promoting spay & neuter, public outreach, pursuit of no-kill policies & legislation and a television program -Dogtown, making available extensive dog training info to the public on their website. They were there in NOLA in the wake of Katrina, and they were here in NJ helping distribute food, etc after Sandy. Imagine my surpise when walking a local shelter dog around the corner of the building & running into John Garcia! i've been to the sanctuary in Utah and it is amazing. Even after Harvey the leadership & innovation continue as they announce a 30 day wait/ hold period (instead of the ridiculously short 3 days in Houston) for people to reunite with their pets after their lives have been totally upended. And guaranteed adoption of pets found as strays or given up after that horrific event. They lead the way in everything they do for the animals. They have changed the equations for dealing with homeless pets,
