Visiting the Sanctuary

Anyone who visits the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary will tell you: There's just something special about this place. On any given day, up to 1,600 animals call Best Friends Animal Sanctuary a home-between-homes - each and every one seeking a safe haven where they can find refuge, love and acceptance.

When you're ready to come visit, you can book lodging, schedule a free Sanctuary tour, browse all the available animals, and find out everything the Sanctuary has to offer on our website:

Plan Your Sanctuary Visit

Please note that our Sanctuary population is constantly changing as animals are adopted and new animals arrive, so we cannot guarantee the future availability of any animal in our care. As a Sanctuary, many of our residents have special medical or behavioral needs that may not be the best fit for every family, but our adoption specialists will work with you to find a great match.

We can't wait to meet you and help you make a love connection with one of our wonderful animals waiting for a home of their own. If you have already submitted your matchmaking survey, look out for an email response from one of our adoption specialists!
