Best Friends Animal Society in Utah is working collaboratively with animal rescue groups, city shelters and passionate individuals who are all dedicated to the mission of making Utah a no-kill state.
As part of this mission, Best Friends hosts adoption and fundraising events, runs the Best Friends Lifesaving Center in Sugar House, and leads the NKUT initiative. We welcome anyone who is six years old and up, although minors age 6-17 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian while volunteering. Each adult can supervise up to three minors during a volunteer shift. If your group has four or more minors, two adults must be present to supervise them while volunteering. For safety considerations, each animal area has its own minimum age requirements: Cat World = 6+ Bunny House = 6+ Parrot Garden = 8+ Dogtown = 10+ Piggy Paradise = 12+ Horse Haven = 12+ Wild Friends = 18+ Sanctuary Store = 18+ Angel’s Rest = 18+ Landscaping = 18+
