New Yorker needed to save animals everywhere, Best Friends Animal Society – Marketing Manager

Save Them All as the Mar­ket­ing Man­ag­er — At the core of Best Friends’ work is the dream that one day ani­mals will no longer be killed in Amer­i­ca’s shel­ters. It was the 1980s. Shel­ters across Amer­i­ca rou­tine­ly killed cats and dogs as the pri­ma­ry method of han­dling unwant­ed pets. Around 17 mil­lion ani­mals per­ished every year. Then, a group of friends began tak­ing some of those “unadopt­a­bles” to a safe haven to heal. At the heart of Best Friends is the Sanc­tu­ary, where, at any giv­en time, about 1,700 ani­mals are turn­ing their lives around, receiv­ing the med­ical help they need, and get­ting love and accep­tance to help them over­come their past. While search­ing for their for­ev­er homes, they live in a scenic, heal­ing envi­ron­ment among human and ani­mal friends.

Best Friends owns near­ly 3,700 acres, and we lease anoth­er 17,000 acres of state and fed­er­al land. Near­ly 30,000 peo­ple vis­it every year to meet the ani­mals and tour what has become the nation’s largest no-kill sanc­tu­ary for com­pan­ion animals.
