Corderman & Company Volunteer Expedition to the Best Friends Animal Society Sanctuary

 
 
 

Corderman & Company partnered with the Best Friends Animal Society to put together a small team of volunteers to help continue the non-profit organization's mission to rescue and save abused and neglected animals. The Corderman volunteer team, including Laura Fraioli, Lisa Borelli, and Hannah Corderman, ventured out west last week to southern Utah where they spent their days volunteering at the Best Friends Animal Society Sanctuary. On any given day, about 1,600 animals call Best Friends Animal Sanctuary a home-between-homes. Dogs, cats, bunnies, birds, horses, pigs and other barnyard animals come here from all over the country, each and every one seeking a safe haven where they can find refuge, love and acceptance. Working full time to directly support animal welfare, with daily activities revolving around animal care, behavioral therapy/training, and cleaning, the volunteer trip was a huge success and we can't wait to continue giving back to causes we are most passionate about.

 
Meet Stetson! The three Corderman women spent time organizing and cleaning the shelter home of this Boxer/American Pit Bull Terrior sweetheart who just arrived to the main shelter area from the Sanctuary's Care Clinic where he's spent the last several months in recovery. Stetson was originally brought into the clinic because of gunshot wounds to his head and mouth. Shot at then left for dead, Stetson was fortunately saved by a good samaritan who called the Best Friends Animal Society ER upon finding him. Now released after recovering from reconstructive surgery, Stetson is doing wonderful and has a LOT of love to give despite his past.

A number of ready-to-adopt dogs are available for special "Animal Sleepovers," a unique way to continue volunteering and helping the Best Friends mission even after the official volunteer day has ended. We brought Raffle, a handsome two year old greyhound rescued from a kill shelter where he was scheduled to be euthanized, back with us to stay the night. Taking him on long walks around town, meeting new people, and enjoying a fun night at the hotel, Raffle had an exciting time exploring Kanab with us. By strengthening his social skills, the hope is Raffle, an amazing dog who never stops smiling and wagging his tail, will become adopted even sooner!
