Dianna has never been in this area before so our first stop Saturday afternoon was at Best Friends Animal Society for another tour. Last fall when we were here we did only the dog tour. This time we took the regular tour of the whole sanctuary. We didn’t get to spend as much time interacting with the animals but we got to visit the cat house.
The Sanctuary is located in beautiful Angel Canyon. They own 3700 acres and lease another 30,000 acres from the Federal Government.
This is Angel’s Rest, the pet cemetery. It is open to the public and is a beautiful, very peaceful place.
The dog house.
Then on to the cat house.
Bob (the cat) has bladder problems and his handler helps stretches out his muscles. Bob loves to de-stress by hanging like this. They do this before they express his bladder for him. Have I told you how well loved and taken care of these animals are.
Most of the animals here come in as unadoptable. Either because of physical problems or because of social problems. They also do not take in very many small dogs because small dogs are easily adopted and work well at local shelters because they don’t need as much room or as much food as the larger dogs. The trainers work with these animals and if they determine that the animal will never be adoptable, it has a home here at Best Friends for the rest of its life.
Don’t you just love these eyes? This cat also has bad hind legs either from abuse or being hit by a car.
This dog is Meridian. He is extremely shy and skittish around people. But look who won him over. With the right owner, he would be an excellent pet and I’m sure they will be able to find that right person for him.
