Lady Mojo is all hound. If you love goofy, sometimes stubborn and always enthusiastic dogs, Lady Mojo may be the girl you’ve been looking for. It would be helpful if you had some hound dog experience. Lady Mojo is a loving companion, but when her hound kicks in, she might temporarily forget that just a moment ago she wanted to be with you and opt to chase whatever it was that caught her eye.
Four-legged or two-legged, furry or feathered, they all have so much love to give — and, boy, do they give it! Share the love by sponsoring an animal for a loved one (or yourself!).
Bart has a full-time job. He and his friend Auggie work at the Best Friends Visitor Center. His job has quite a bit of variety. Sometimes he is a greeter, sometimes he’s a therapist (people naturally like to tell him their troubles), sometimes he is on security duty and he patrols the whole place making sure it’s up to scratch.
Update: Aster was adopted!
Sometimes you meet a dog that just makes you smile instantly. That's Aster. She came to us from a sanctuary in Texas that is closing.
Aster is a strange creature (in the most loving way). She is charming, a bit shy and just the oddest little dog. Those eyes and those bat ears give her an almost cartoonish appearance. But it's her attitude that makes her the queen of the Fairway (the Dogtown area that is her current home). She snorts, grunts and stomps around the place like she owns it.
When I park at Horse Haven, Titan makes his way to the fence line to see if maybe this time, I have a treat for him. He seems to enjoy the interaction and lives in the hope that soon I'll disregard all the signs that say “No treats” and give him something. He reminds me of a gigantic sweet-tempered mooch. I just love him.
Sweet Alice loves to sunbathe. This curious, but timid gal has been at the Sanctuary since 2004. She is good at sharing, but we’d all love to see her have something of her own. Alice is shy, but treats, along with her natural curiosity, helps. Let’s see if some holiday magic can help this kitty find a home of her very own.
Cupid is an absolute favorite among staff and volunteers. This smart bunny loves clicker training and shows off by kissing his caregivers upon request! Cupid is a New Zealand bunny and about 5 1/2 years old in good health. He didn’t start off that way. His poor ears were a mess! You can read about his time here at Best Friends in these journals.
Cowboy is living with his old friend, Roy, as well as a few new friends named Billy Bob and Pancho. He still has some problems with arthritis in his spine, but had a nice summer, thanks in large part to the chiropractic work, acupuncture, and cold laser therapy he has been getting. He's still quite the character and is a staff favorite.
This story was submitted by Ken and Karen who traveled from Pennsylvania to volunteer at Best Friends. While visiting, they met and fell in love with Annette. ~Wendy
My wife Karen and I volunteered at the Sanctuary in early November. While there we met a little kitty that Karen took a liking to and then so did I. Her name is Annette and she has feline leukemia (FeLV).
