The Best Friends Visitor Center

Please note:
To keep our staff, guests and the animals safe, we’re reopening to the nearby public on June 25, 2020. This means that residents of Utah, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, New Mexico or Wyoming who drive to the Sanctuary are welcome to book lodging, reserve a tour or sign up for a volunteer shift. We look forward to inviting guests from all locations soon and thank you for your understanding.

As of Monday, March 16th, the Best Friends visitor Center will be closed to the public until further notice.

The Best Friends Visitor Center, located in the heart of Kanab, is an interactive educational center for tourists to learn more about Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, our national programs and, of course, the animals. Folks will have the opportunity to sign up for Sanctuary tours, get information on volunteering, grab a tasty drink, and even meet a few adorable, adoptable pets! Be sure to check out our upcoming events, like Kittens & Coffee and Paint Your Pet's Portrait, listed below.
