best friends animal society
everyone who knows me knows how much i love animals. which means i love people and organizations that love animals.
the best friends animal society is an amazing non-profit organization that is "dedicated to the simple philosophy that kindness to animals builds a better world for all of us." their utah sanctuary is home to thousands of animals, most of which have special needs and many of which are considered un-adoptable. they give these animals the love, attention, and care that they need in order to live full lives, and they also help to find them "forever homes." the network has also led some of the largest animal rescue efforts at home and abroad.
if you ever need a good cry, you can go to their website and read the stories of some of the cats, dogs, bunnies, horses, and birds that have been rescued. you can even adopt or sponsor one (or more) of them. i can't think of a better way to spend $25.
p.s.... the kitty image up in the corner is from the pawprints project, which sells art prints of actual shelter animals. 10% of the purchase price of each print goes to a local animal shelter.
