Discovery Weekend 2022

May 12-15, Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, Kanab, Utah

A weekend of wonder where you’ll see firsthand the lifesaving work that you make possible every day. Whether it’s your first visit or your favorite destination, the magic of Angel Canyon is sure to surprise and delight you. Here, you’ll learn how, together, we’re making the entire country no-kill by 2025.

Best Friends Discovery Weekend is your chance to step behind the scenes at the Sanctuary. You’ll meet Best Friends’ visionary founders, interact with our caregivers, connect with the animals who call the Sanctuary a home-between-homes, and spend time with people who, like you, believe we will Save Them All.
