Favorite Things to Do at Best Friends

If you go:

*Stay at the cabins, they are awesome, and if you are a member (only a $25 donation!) traveling off season (Dec-Mar) they are only $55/night and have all the comforts of home including cable, kitchenette, shower, coffee, and fridge/microwave

*Eat at Angel Village- every day at noon for staff and volunteers, the chef at Angel Village cooks an amazing vegetarian buffet for only $4!!!!  Our lunch included stuffed red and green peppers, homeade fresh vegetable soup, salad bar, fresh fruit, tomato salad, mini cheesecakes, coffee, tea, etc!  The view is also AMAZING!

*Take a sanctuary dog on an outing or a sleepover.  BF relies on people giving the animals many experiences with different people in different situations.  If you do not bring your own dogs to BF, they will allow you to choose an adoptable animal for an overnight, then give that dogs' caregivers a full report card so that they know how the dog did, and if they have to work on any issues- this helps the dog be more adoptable and have less chance of being returned.  I'm told you can even do a sleepover with a Pot Bellied Pig!

*Visit Angel's Rest- it is a peaceful and tranquil place where many loved animals have been 'tucked in.'  It will give you chills and take your breath away.

*Hike the extensive, well built and maintained trail network that surrounds the thousands of acres around Angel Canyon

*Sponsor an animal- if you can't adopt one, help one out!  There are links on each animal that help you donate whatever you can to assist in the care of that kind soul like Tina Louise or Theresa

*Shop at the gift shop- they have many cool items for you and your furry friends.  Consider buying some windchimes or prayer flags if you or someone you know has lost a beloved pet.  They also have lots of logo wear and artwork, all of the profits go back to the animals there!

*Take a tour, it's a beautiful 90 minute ride through gorgeous canyon country, where red rock views and juniper trees speckle the land.  Along the way, you'll get to see all the places the animals call home

Wow... thanks for the series of BF posts. I had no idea about this place and it looks really great. I also like the Best Friend site that allows you to read about all the pets they have for adoption. I will have to post this info up on the cragbaby.
Great posts, girl!
Keep on rockin' on.
