Animal volunteer vacations for groups and families

For groups interested in an animal volunteer trip, the Best Friends Learning Experience offers a program tailored especially for you at our sanctuary in Kanab, Utah. This program is designed for people who are interested in working together in an animal sanctuary setting.

Groups of all types are welcome to volunteer, including:

  • School and university groups and clubs
  • Church groups
  • Scout troops
  • Professional organizations
  • Families (e.g., a trip to the Sanctuary makes a great family reunion vacation)
  • Groups of friends

The experience of volunteering to help animals

By participating in the daily routine of the Sanctuary, groups have the opportunity to learn about and participate in various aspects of animal welfare and rescue. Individuals get the chance to work hands on with, caring for and socializing, different animals at the Sanctuary, including dogs, cats, rabbits and more. Volunteers also participate in service projects and attend educational presentations to learn more about community cats, breed discrimination and puppy mills.
