Every day at the Sanctuary, animals receive the love, care and companionship they need to heal and find families of their very own. Please, have a look around.

Tucked into the exquisite red-rock canyons of southern Utah, Best Friends Animal Sanctuary remains the heart of our organization and the largest no-kill sanctuary in the nation. 

Here, cats, dogs, horses, pigs, birds, bunnies and other animals find safe haven, along with the chance to be adopted by a loving family. Best Friends is dedicated to bringing the entire country to no-kill by 2025.
