Help save homeless pets in UT
Shelters near you need help to save more lives. In 2022, 1,700 dogs and cats were killed in animal shelters across Utah, but together with your help, we’re changing that.
Best Friends is working with animal welfare organizations and stakeholders statewide to save every pet who can be saved and reach no-kill through Utah by 2025. Your local shelter is counting on your help. Now is the time to get involved and make a lifesaving difference.
Best Friends calls Utah home
Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab is the largest sanctuary for companion animals in the nation. We also have a lifesaving center in Salt Lake City that offers adoptions and includes a kitten care center, spay/neuter clinic, and pet food pantry. In addition, we help support the Navajo Nation with food donations, spay/neuter services, vaccines, and grants.
