Time with the animals
Signing up for a volunteer shift is one of the best ways to ensure that you get quality time with the animals.
Personal pets are allowed in public areas, including Angel Village, hiking trails and the welcome center, with the exception of indoor dining areas.

A few other things to consider
Smoking and Best Friends facilities
Smoking is permitted only in designated outdoor smoking areas. Smoking is prohibited in all Best Friends buildings and work vehicles (including golf carts) and within 25 feet of building entrances, exits, air intakes and windows. To reduce both litter and the risk of brush fires, all cigarette butts must be disposed of properly in a designated receptacle.
For safety reasons and in keeping with our principles, firearms are not allowed.
