As it happens, when I have a lot of paperwork to do, I am able to listen to books on audio. I have had a LOT of paperwork lately so the books are just flying by.
The book Best Friends attracted me simply because it have dogs and cats on the cover. The tagline read “The True Story of the World’s Most Beloved Animal Sanctuary.” Being an animal fan – I gave it a listen. Wow. Best Friends is an amazingly huge sanctuary in the heart of the Golden Circle of national parks of the Southwest, including the Grand Canyon, Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon, Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, and Lake Powell. The book is the story of how the creation of Best Friends was realized after decades of dreaming.

If you love animals, you will love the stories in this book. I think I have a new travel destination on my “places to see” list.

So what can you do? Well, the Best Friends Network is more than just a cool ranch in Utah, it is a nationwide movement. One of their areas of focus is the No More Homeless Pets initiative. Steps you can take in your area include:
  1. Spay or neuter all of your pets and any outdoor cats you are feeding.
  2. Adopt a pet from a shelter or rescue group. Never buy from a pet store.
  3. Join the Best Friends Network.
