Those who know me know of my passion for homeless, neglected, abused and unwanted animals. I've read and heard about Best Friends but I guess I had forgotten we'd be traveling into the backyard of this group of rescuers. Of course, there would have to be a tour of the facility.

An enormous plot of land has been set aside at the sanctuary for a pet cemetery and memory center called Angels Rest. Like everything else here, it's all about the animals.
The huge property of Best Friends contains specific areas with names like Dogtown, Catland, Feathered Friends, Piggy Paradise and Bunny House.
|It's a gated community.|
Our tour made stops to meet and greet dogs in one of the DogTown quads and then to meet some kitties at Catland. Wayne went in to see the dogs but stayed in the car at the Catland stop.
|Looks like this guy made friends with these folks already!|

This sweet setter mix has been adopted and will be shipping out soon.
She tried to play with everybody.

|Pit Bulls have one of the toughest roads to travel because of their reputation.|
|Welcome to one of the Cat Houses!|
|Loved this little white one especially.|
Other fine groups are established all across the country too. Please do your part to help if you can.
