Meanwhile, the Wild Friends area rescues everything else -- bobcats, eagles, hawks, owls, bats -- then releases them back into the wild when they're all better. Of course, they're welcome to continue chilling at Best Friends for life if they can't be released for medical reasons or are super lazy.
Best Friends Animal Society
"Nah, I'm good here. How about you go live in a tree and eat field mice."
In 2013, 992 animals were adopted from Best Friends (out of 1,700, that's pretty good), not to mention the 37,000 pets they helped put in homes through their various community programs, local shelters, and partner networks. Remember "the nice farm upstate" your parents said they sent your dog to, when he got sick? This is probably it!
