Volunteering at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary as part of a group

Are you looking for a group volunteer experience that you’ll never forget — one that includes awe-inspiring scenery, friendly furry animals, and the chance to make a difference in the lives of homeless pets?

Group volunteer experience

The Best Friends group volunteer experience offers a unique program for those seeking an integrative learning experience in a setting like no other. You’ll be given the chance to work together with your group at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah — the largest no-kill animal sanctuary in the nation.

Every day, more than 4,100 dogs and cats killed in America’s shelters, just because they don’t have safe places to call home. We are determined to reduce that number to zero by the year 2025. The group volunteer program offers a blend of service projects  — educational presentations, tours and hikes that will inspire group members to help homeless pets in their communities.

Program presentations revolve around no-kill initiatives to Save Them All, with topics such as breed discrimination, community cats, puppy mills, Best Friends’ 2025 goal, and a showing of the documentary film, The Champions.

Groups best suited for Best Friends group volunteering:

  • Corporate or nonprofit groups
  • Professional organizations
  • High school and university service groups and clubs

Group sizes range from five people (smallest) to 12 people (largest) and 14 is the minimum age to participate in a group service-learning experience. At least two adults are required per group, and one adult can supervise up to five minors.
