Our grandma, Beth, had a bucket-list wish to visit Best Friends animal sanctuary. As you all know, she's a tremendous animal lover (have you ever heard the story of her pet pig?!), and she's been supporting Best Friends for many, many years. She hasn't made it for that visit yet, but we're hoping that COVID-19 will wane and we can safely take a road trip together in 2022! Until then, we thought we'd raise money in her name for her favorite cause.
If you don't know Best Friends, it was founded in 1984. Best Friends is a pioneer in the no-kill movement and has helped reduce the number of animals killed in shelters nationwide from an estimated 17 million per year to around 625,000. That means there are still about 1,700 dogs and cats killed every day in shelters, just 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 Beth's fundraiser, you'll be helping around 1,600 dogs, cats, bunnies, birds, horses, and other barnyard animals who on any given day reside at the 4000+ acres that make up 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 honor our Gram by helping to save animals' lives! I know how much Beth will appreciate your help, and I know how much we appreciate your support in her name!
