Best Friends: A canyon paradise for homeless animals

“Our mission is to end the killing of shelter pets.” For the past thirty years, Frances Battista and a group of friends have been working hard to accomplish that mission, founding Best Friends Animal Society and building the largest no-kill sanctuary for homeless animals in need. Located in the beautiful red rocks of Kanab, Utah, Best Friends Animal Sanctuary is home to about 1,700 animals — cats, dogs, rabbits, birds, horses, goats, pigs and sheep — just to name a few.
