Staying at the Sanctuary’s RV sites

Best Friends Roadhouse and Mercantile, along with our Sanctuary and Sanctuary-based lodging, are excited to welcome back guests from all across the country! Starting August 1, to keep visitors, staff members and volunteers healthy and safe, we will transition into our longer-term COVID-19 operating plan. This plan reflects the recommended best practices from current government guidelines and credible medical evidence.

While on Best Friends grounds, we ask everyone to adhere to the following safety measures:

  • Wear a mask.
  • Complete a required health screening questionnaire before being visiting, volunteering or staying in any of our lodging options.
  • Wash and sanitize your hands frequently.
  • Adhere to proper guidelines on social distancing.

Also, Best Friends is dedicated to keeping guests and visitors safe by taking the following measures:

  • Frequent disinfecting of highly touched and high-traffic areas
  • Limiting the number of visitors and volunteers who can access indoor spaces and high-traffic areas
  • Enforcing proper guidelines on social distancing
  • Complying with all CDC, national, state and local laws and guidelines, including any nonlocal stay-at-home orders

Although we are all going through an unprecedented time, we can come together to keep each other safe and healthy as we continue to Save Them All.

Thank you for your commitment to the animals and to each other.

Please note:

RVs longer than 21 feet will have difficulty maneuvering on some of the Sanctuary roads and in parking areas. If your RV is longer than 21 feet, you’ll need a car to get around the Sanctuary.

Transportation is not provided at the Sanctuary, so you’ll need your own vehicle to get around. The Sanctuary is spread across 4,200 acres and many of the animal areas are miles apart. Walking is not a viable option and bicycles are not allowed on most roads. You’ll also need a vehicle if you want to travel to and from the town of Kanab. Persons volunteering in Dogtown must have access to a vehicle during all shifts.
