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

Rating: 1 stars  

Best Friends, or Worst Friends as I prefer to call them, is a fraud. They sit on thousands of acres of land and millions of dollars in the bank, but do ABSOLUTLY NOTHING for the local community. We are in dire need of a local animal shelter in Kanab, but will Worst Friends help? You have got to be kidding! They would rather spend money on saving animals in Lebanon, Peru, the Michael Vick pit bulls, etc. Why? Because it is great publicity and rakes in the dollars. Kanab and Kane County need an animal shelter and if Worst Friends would actually live up to their Best Friends title they would provide it. One of the Founders was once overheard to say that in addition to the to the land at the sanctuary itself, they also had title to a large amount of acreage very remote. This land cannot be used for sanctuary purposes becuase of its location and it's understood that you need a 4WD to get access to it. Why do they have this additional land? Remember, the people were originally known as the Process Church so is this property used to hide religious ceremonies from public view? With Worst Friends almost anything is possible!

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

Disgusting detail

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

Sweep away over 90% of the so-called management and staff those positions with people who have actual management experience.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...


The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Staff is generally good, but the middle management should largely be done away with. All of executive management should be done away with.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Hide it like it does with the rest of the money it receives.

Ways to make it better...

They were honest!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

They lie when admitting a mistake would be far better. They have become a legend in their own minds.

One thing I'd also say is that...

The Feds ought to initiate a RICO investigation.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Donor & Donated large sums and volunteered.
