Best Friends Animal Sanctuary and National Conference
Written by Lindsay Black
We began our trip at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Angel Canyon, just 5 miles outside of Kanab. Approximately 1,600 homeless animals reside at Best Friends, including cats, dogs, horses, pigs, bunnies, parrots and wild life. Driving into the desert we were greeted by beautiful orange and white cliffs and canyons. The view was absolutely breathtaking. We stayed in a cottage at the Sanctuary overlooking a number of horses in their pen. Every once in a while you would hear a loud neighing of a horse and at night the crickets sung us to sleep.

“It was great to see so many people joining together to help animals in need. I learned a lot and have brought back some great ideas to make life at AARCS happier for the dogs and the people. It was very validating to hear so many recommendations that shelters and rescues should start doing things that AARCS has been doing for a decade now.”
