Book Summary:

In the summer of 1982, a group of young men and women pooled every penny they had and bought three thousand acres of desert in Utah.  It was to become the most famous no-kill animal sanctuary in the world - a haven for over two thousand furry and feathered friends, including:

  • Sinjin, the badly burned clack cat who survived to welcome others home
  • Victor, the abandoned Australian Shepherd mix who became the Godfather of dogs
  • Sparkles, the broken-down pack horse who comforts humans and animals
  • And then there's Tyson and Tommy, two tiny black kittens who have something to teach us all...

Author Samantha Glen traces Best Friends' amazing development from a passionate group of people who rescued handfuls of animals, creating the country's most beloved sanctuary for special-needs pets, to a respected organization that leads the no-kill movement.  With a forward by Mary Tyler Moore, this book reminds us all that a small group of friends can make a big difference.
