Angel Canyon, home of Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, has been known for thousands of years as a sacred place to the people who lived here. When you arrive, you immediately feel the peace and tranquility of a place where so many ancient peoples have gathered in centuries past, and where today, so many creatures are loved and heal from their hard life journeys.

The animals come to this sanctuary in the canyon from far and wide. Some are ill, some have been neglected or abused, and all are homeless. But once they're at this animal refuge, at what is much more than a no-kill animal shelter, they receive everything they need, physically, emotionally and psychologically, to thrive and find good homes. For those few who are never ready to take that next step, Best Friends is their safe haven for life. There really is nowhere else like it on earth.
