Located five miles north of Kanab, Utah, Angel Canyon, home of Best Friends Animal Sanctuary and about 1,700 homeless animals, has been known for thousands of years as a sacred place to the people who lived here. It continues to this day to be a very unique and extraordinary place.
A place of healing for homeless pets
When you arrive in the canyon, 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 animals are loved and heal from their hard life journeys. The Sanctuary is home to dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, horses, pigs, goats, mules, sheep, burros and wildlife.
An animal refuge
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 our animal safe haven, at what is so 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 the Sanctuary on earth.
