Best Friends

Best Friends is my pet project, forgive the pun. My husband and I were travelling through a deep valley in Utah some years ago and happened to see a large and colorful hand carved sign by the side of the road reading: Best Friends. We went in and the rest is history. Please read the following excerpt from their website. They do incredible rescue and rehabilitation work.

"The Best Friends Animal Sanctuary at Angel Canyon, at the heart of the Golden Circle of national parks in southern Utah, is home on any given day to about 2,000 dogs, cats, and other animals, who come from shelters and rescue groups around the country for special care they can only receive at Best Friends.

Most of the animals who find their way to Best Friends have special physical or behavioral needs, and our expert staff of veterinarians, trainers and caregivers offer them all the help they require. Most of them are ready to go to good new homes after just a few weeks of special care. A few, who are too old or too sick, or who have suffered extra trauma, find a home and haven at the sanctuary, and are given loving care for the rest of their lives."

A great gift for all animal lovers is a donation in their names to Best Friends. Please visit to learn more about this wonderful place.
