There are over 1,600 animals at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. And you can change the life of one of them today. Sponsor a dog, cat, bird, or even a horse and follow their story. Or maybe even find your new best friend to adopt.
Meet animals to sponsor from Best Friends Animal Society. Keep coming back here to get the latest information on how they are doing.
Have you ever been mistaken for someone famous — perhaps a musician, actor or athlete? It happens to felines as well. In fact, there’s a cat at Best Friends who looks so much like a certain someone, he’s named after him.
Sporting a handsome gray and white coat with impressive jowls, Little Benton bears an uncanny resemblance to Benton, a famous former Cat World resident.
Visitors to the Sanctuary can submit kudos cards to acknowledge Best Friends employees who are doing particularly outstanding work. It’s quite an honor and, wouldn’t you know, Princess Blue overcame the species barrier. As the Best Friends Welcome Center gift shop greeter, she received a kudo. The reason? Being soft.
Ever wonder how we choose names for the animals at the Sanctuary? They get a name when they arrive — before we really know them — and sometimes it’s challenging! Naming Holy Moly though was easy. This big, gorgeous, rambunctious boy was rowdy. When he gets the zoomies you can’t help but scratch your head and mutter, “Holy moly.”
Koda is new at the Sanctuary. He was adopted as a kitten, but things didn’t work out in his home. Koda had been behaving in a way that seemed a little aggressive. Lucky for Koda, we understand that sometimes the only way a cat can let you know something is wrong is by acting in a way that demands your attention!
On a sunny winter afternoon I reacquainted myself with Tiny Tim. It took all of one minute. Happy Feet (one of his many nicknames) has never met a stranger. He is bright, playful and always eager to “help” a volunteer with whatever task is at hand. Folded towels need to be inspected, toys need to be tested, etc. He is a busy boy.
The word “tortitude” is a word used to describe the irascible attitude of tortoiseshell-colored cats. They can be strong-willed and independent — yet not so independent that they won’t let you know when they need something from you. Eliana’s tortitude comes into play daily. She uses that strong will to overcome her mobility challenges. There is no keeping this feisty feline from her favorite bed on the catio.
