The True Blood Actress is the Society’s Ambassador:
Fans of HBO’s True Blood not only know Kristin Bauer van Straten as the vampire Pam, but as an actress who adores animals. Recently she got a chance to visit the Best Friends Animal Society’s Sancuary which is the nation’s largest no-kill shelter. Kristin is a celebrity ambassador for the society and has been a strong advocate for them over the last few years. This was her first visit to the sanctuary and she had this to say about it:
Words can’t describe this stunning operation. Things impacted me that I hadn’t expected. The beauty of the place, the backdrop of Utah is ever present. The people who work here and volunteer are quite astounding. I was also surprised by individual animals I met: a wobbly big black cat who pushed his head in to my hand and purred so loud; a guinea pig with a Mohawk who made such strong eye contact with me; and a seven-month-old pot belly pig who already knew all the tricks my seven-year-old dog can do.
This is a trip one simply must do. Best Friends is the only place like it in the world. The founders have done something never before accomplished. Before their vision, no one believed (no-kill) was even possible. Lives are transformed at Best Friends through a very special combination of love and know how. Treat yourself to immersion and some of that transformation will also rub off on you, it has me. This is a trip for the soul.
