Kanab, UT is home to one amazing animal sanctuary, Best Friends. I dragged Logan here once while we were driving to Bryce Canyon. Since then I’ve dreamed of going back, staying in the camper and volunteering. Our Bambi tour just so happened to pass through, so you got it, we stopped.
With 4,000 acres in a painted desert canyon, Best Friends does not disappoint in views. More importantly, they’re running a tight ship and take animals care to the next level. If you’re in SW Utah – go there. I promise it’s worth a stop for a tour or a half day of volunteering. We hung with the senior dogs and helped clean up their areas.
After volunteering, we left camp for a lil hike to explore the canyon and found some pretty epic secret stashes.
Our travel dog Jerry was adopted from a shelter. Getting close to 9 yrs. old, he is still rocking with us in our adventure lifestyle. I could go on and on about how great he is, but if you’ve met him, you know ;). The point is, no matter where you live or what kind of dog appeals to you, go check out your local shelter. Just stop by and see if you’re forever friend is there. Mine was and I couldn’t be more grateful for the joy he brings (when he’s not pissing in the house….but that’s another story).
