On January 19, 2020, we lost our beloved mother, grandmother, aunt, sister, and great-grandmother, Barbara Liss. Her passion and love for the wellbeing of animals was a testament to the size of her heart. In her honor and memory, we have established a memorial fundraiser for one of her favorite organizations, the Best Friends Animal Society. In 2015, Barbara visited and volunteered at the Best Friends Animal Society Sanctuary in Southern Utah with her daughter, Linda. It was the fulfillment of one of Barbara's lifelong dreams.
Since it was founded in 1984, Best Friends Animal Society has helped reduce the number of dogs and cats killed in shelters nationwide from 17 million per year to about 733,000. That's incredible progress, but it means about 2,000 dogs and cats are still being killed in America's shelters every day, simply because they don't have safe places to call home. That number should be zero. And if we work together, it can be.
When you donate to this fundraiser in memory of Barbara Liss, you'll be helping around 1,600 dogs, cats, bunnies, birds, horses, and other barnyard animals who on any given day reside at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. Plus, you'll be helping to save the lives of homeless pets all across the country through lifesaving adoption and spay/neuter programs, no-kill initiatives, and more.
Thank you for donating to help save animals' lives. Together, we will Save Them All.
Love, Linda, Debbie, and Jonny
