Best Friends Animal Society celebrated the grand opening of Vals Puppy Care Center on March 25, 2010. The new two-building setup for puppies at the sanctuary was built to keep the puppies warm and snug no matter what the weather can dish out and has been much needed. Vals Puppy Care Center was about three years in the making, including a full year of planning alone. As Best Friends CEO Gregory Castle explained in his opening remarks for the ceremony, "This building will help save lives," and "will bring us closer to a day when there are no more homeless pets."
Get a peek at the building and some of the new residents.
Best Friends Animal Society is a nonprofit organization building no-kill programs and partnerships that will bring about a day when there are No More Homeless Pets®. At the core of Best Friends' work is the dream that one day kindness will replace cruelty, and animals will no longer be destroyed because they are unwanted or imperfect. Spaying and neutering will be the rule for all pets and adoption will be the first option for everyone. Making this dream a reality is the mission we call No More Homeless Pets. The society's leading initiatives in animal care and community programs are coordinated from its Kanab, Utah, headquarters, the country's largest no-kill sanctuary. This work is made possible by the personal and financial support of a grassroots network of supporters and community partners across the nation.
