‘Get Busy Living’ with Best Friends!
Each year, tourists from around the world find their way to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, the nation’s largest no-kill animal sanctuary for abused and abandoned companion animals. Located in the scenic red-rock country of Angel Canyon, five miles north of Kanab, the sanctuary is operated by Best Friends Animal Society, one of the nation’s best-known animal welfare organizations. Established in 1984, Best Friends, in addition to the sanctuary, manages national initiatives on a variety of animal welfare issues. Often described as the nation’s most beloved animal sanctuary, Best Friends is home on any given day to about 1,700 cats, dogs, bunnies, parrots, birds, horses, potbellied pigs and other companion animals. Each animal comes to the sanctuary with its own story of abuse, neglect, or abandonment. However, at Best Friends they are under the watchful eye of caregivers who attend to their needs, always with the goal of a happy ending to their story – adoption into a new, loving, life-long home. Free daily tours delight visitors with a beautiful drive through the sanctuary’s 3,800 acres. The tours take an hour and a half and wind through Angel Canyon, a sacred place for thousands of years. The tour stops at Cat World and Dogtown. Visitors also pass by Horse Haven, Piggy Paradise, Bunny and the Parrot Garden. ? Along the way, visitors are sure to see other wild species because the area is populated by jackrabbits, wild turkeys, deer, bald eagles and hawks. To reserve space on a tour, please call 435-644-2001, ext. 4537 or e-mail email@example.com. Tours start at 9 a.m. and book fast. Reservations are recommended. Best Friends Animal Sanctuary has become one of America’s top destinations for volunteer vacations. Of the more than 29,000 visitors who came to Best Friends, nearly 8,000 of them decided to volunteer at the sanctuary. That means they spent time walking dogs, cats or potbellied pigs, socializing or feeding the animals, cleaning animal living areas and performing other important tasks critical to the care of the animals. Many families volunteer for a couples of days, then head out to visit nearby national parks. Don’t just make a visit to Best Friends a stop on your travel itinerary, make it an enriching experience for years to come.
