About the Author
Best Friends Animal Society is a non-profit tax-exempt charity that provides sanctuary to between 1,500 and 2,000 animals. The organization was the brainchild of Michael Mountain, who sought to create a no-kill facility for rescued animals. The pilot program expanded and Best Friends was established in the early 1980s. They have great success in rescuing and rehabilitating animals and finding homes for them. The sanctuary is located at Angel Canyon in Southern Utah, a 33,000-acre ranch at the heart of the famous Golden Circle of national parks, close to Zion National Park, the Grand Canyon's North Rim, Bryce Canyon, and Lake Powell. A wide range of animals, including dogs, cats, birds, horses, rabbits, goats and farm animals, are cared for at Best Friends. The organization reaches across the nation, helping humane groups, individual people, and entire communities to set up spay/neuter, shelter, foster, and adoption programs in their own neighborhoods, cities, and states.A former reporter and editor, Michael S. Sweeney is assistant professor of communications at Utah State University in Logan.
