For more than two decades, the Best Friends Animal Society has focused on making the world a better place for animals. With programs focusing on animals that are often deemed unadoptable, the BFAS has a new adoption center in Trolley Square in Salt Lake City. Open Wednesday-Saturday, 12-8 p.m., the center offers animals who need a new home and are currently available for adoption.
The BFAS operates a sanctuary in Southern Utah with more than 1,700 animals on 30,000 acres. While mainly hosting dogs and cats, the sanctuary is also home to rabbits, birds, goats and pigs. It’s open to visitors and each year more than 25,000 people tour the facility and more than 4,500 volunteer.
Adoption fees are $25 for cats and $75 for dogs, with all pets spayed/neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped.
“We want to encourage people to adopt pets either from stores that offer rescued animals, or from shelters and rescue groups. Every year millions of homeless, adoptable dogs are euthanized in shelters and we want to stop that unnecessary killing,” said Kelli Ohrtman, Best Friends campaign specialist.
