Places of peace and healing
Angels Rest and Angels Overlook are sites of exceptional peace and quiet beauty, much more than final resting places for Sanctuary animals and cherished companions of Best Friends members, staff, and pet lovers.
They are tributes to the enduring bond we share with animals.
Set against the vastness of Angel Canyon, wind chimes softly sound with the slightest breeze, and each marker celebrates the memory of a beloved pet. Together, they remind us of the connectedness of all living things.
A visit to Angels Rest
To get a sense of the beauty and tranquility of Angels Rest, please watch this guided video tour. It’s by our own Best Friends co-founder Faith Maloney, who passed away shortly after it was recorded.
Tokens of remembrance for pets we’ve lost
At Best Friends, the ritual of leaving stones or tokens on the graves of animals lost has become a cherished and meaningful tradition.
Leaving a stone represents your loving support for those connected to this special pet and acknowledges and honors the bond that exists between them forever.
