Have you heard about this wonderful show on the National Geographic Channel? My neighbor has what I would consider a dream job working for them. They are the most wonderful animal organization and are located in the beautiful red rocks in southern Utah. This organization is called Best Friends Animal Sanctuary and they basically take the worst-of-the-worst animals that have little chance of finding homes and make them well and socially acceptable - which means adoptable. I've started watching (ok, I'm addicted to) their show on tv called "Dogtown" which is just about the dogs at the sanctuary. They believe that every animal can be rehabilitated and they even took the worst of Michael Vick's fighting pit bulls and spent many months working with them to make them adoptable. I'm so impressed with the work they do.
So far, I've found several horses, bunnies, cats, dogs, ferrets, and oh, a squirrel that really need to come live with us. One day, I want to make a trip down there to spend a week and volunteer.
