Best Friends Animal Society Offers Rescue Partner Incentives for Efforts : For each VIP Rescue Only Pet pulled with one of our approved rescue partners , Best Friends Animal Society offered to give $ 125 to provide support to rescue agencies who are also navigating some of the same life saving challenges that Arlington Animal Services has been faced with this summer . " As everyone adjusts to life opening back up , paired with the peak intake numbers during the summer , shelters have an increasingly difficult time housing and placing the high numbers of animals coming to the shelter for help ." said Ashley Woolnough , AAS Shelter Manager . " We are thankful for the incentive partnership with Best Friends to help ease financial burdens of pulling a VIP pet from the shelter ." In addition to the financial assistance , this incentive also helps by freeing up space at the shelter when we expect to see more pets entering our facility .
