This year for the Christmas season, in lieu of sponsoring one animal, we decided to make a general donation to the Best Friends Animal Society, which runs an animal-adoption shelter and also has a wonderful animal sanctuary for those animals who are not eligible for adoption. With so many homeless pets out there in need of loving families, we thought we’d help shine a light on some of the animals who can be adopted, like Buddy, who most likely used to be a big-time stuntman in Los Angeles, and Georgia, one of the pit bulls found living on the property of Michael Vick.
Watch the adorable video here below of some of the animals at BFAS dressed up in their holiday best.
You can view all the adoptable animals currently at Best Friends Animal Society, which includes dogs, cats, and birds, as well as horses, goats, ducks, sheep, pigs, and more (yes, farm animals can be adopted into loving homes too). Through the end of the year, shelter adoption fees are being waived for all senior dogs and cats.
If you’re unable to actually care for one of these animals, you can also sponsor an animal who is a permanent resident at the sanctuary.
If you feel so inclined to make a donation to Best Friends Animal Society, now’s a great time to do so, as all donations through the end of the year will be matched thanks to a group of generous donors.
If you live near the sanctuary in Utah or want to visit there, there’s alternate non-monetary ways to give, like volunteering at the shelter; having a sleepover with a dog, cat, pig, or rabbit; or taking a dog for an outing for the day.
