Visit Best Friends at our Utah Sanctuary and Lifesaving Centers across the country.

Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, UT

One of the great benefits of being a Network partner is that our Volunteer and Visitor Experience Division staff (VVE) will help coordinate your Sanctuary visit to give you a personalized experience and ensure you maximize your time with us.  

If you’d like to visit the Sanctuary, please complete our Best Friends Network partner pre-visit survey. Once this is submitted, staff from the VVE Division will reach out to you directly to help plan your activities. 

For a successful visit, please note the following:

  • We encourage you to provide as much advance notice as possible. Six to eight weeks is recommended. The earlier you plan, the more likely that your specific requests can be accommodated.
  • If you desire any interaction with the animals while visiting, you’ll need to register in advance as a volunteer. More information on volunteering can be found by clicking here
  • You can find more information to help you plan your visit here.
