Baltimore Sun Promotes Best Friends Sanctuary

The Baltimore Sun has published this little article on Best Friends animal sanctuary, calling it the travel deal of the week.

Best Friends, the largest no-kill animal sanctuary in America, “has added four tidy cabins to its eight cottages in Utah, all the better to house some of the 20,000 people who visit each year.”

The facility is located just outside of Kanab, making it a convenient stop for people touring Zion, Bryce and Grand Canyon national parks, and Lake Powell.

Best Friends houses some 1,700 animals and most are available for adoption. It depends on volunteers to help care for the animals and has won accolades from many celebrities and animal rights groups.

“Many animal lovers - 4,500 last year - volunteer for a day or two, walking and grooming the dogs, playing with the cats or helping out with training,” the article says.
