Best Friends–Utah

Ever since Best Friends was founded 30 years ago, we’ve called Utah home.

Located in the beautiful red-rock canyons of Southern Utah, Best Friends Animal Sanctuary is home to about 1,700 animals and stands as a model for lifesaving programs that we share with others around the country.

Since the early 90s, our work has branched out beyond the Sanctuary to the rest of the state. And in 2000, we launched innovative programs dedicated solely to reducing shelter deaths in Utah.

We’ve made great progress: More and more Utah shelters and communities are becoming no-kill. But until every homeless dog and cat is saved, our work is not complete.

That’s why, in 2014, Best Friends introduced the No-Kill Utah (NKUT) initiative. NKUT brings together passionate individuals, city shelters and an entire coalition of animal welfare organizations, all working toward a single goal — to end the unnecessary killing of dogs and cats in Utah shelters by the year 2019.

We’re in the final push to make a no-kill Utah become a reality. The last 20 yards. We can’t do it without you.

Join us. Because together, we can Save Them All.
