Volunteering in 2012

Is one of your new year’s resolutions to volunteer more in 2012?  If you’re an animal lover, I’ve got a great suggestion for you!  Visit the Best Friends Animal Society’s sanctuary and spend a week with some of your favorite and some non-traditional animals.

In 2010, I volunteered at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Angel Canyon in Kanab, Utah.  Best Friends is the nation’s largest no-kill sanctuary and is home to over 1,800 animals including dogs, cats, horses, pigs, birds and more who come from shelters and rescue groups around the country.  some of the animals have special physical or behavioral needs.

This is a really cool place for animal and nature lovers alike.  It’s beautiful in the canyon setting and there are so many different animals to help with, you really make a difference.

Check out their website for more info on adopting an animal, volunteer opportunities and other ways you can help out – www.bestfriends.org

I flew into Las Vegas and rented a car to drive 4 hours to the sanctuary.  On the way I stopped at Zion National Park to spend a few hours exploring the park.

You can also visit the Grand Canyon while you’re in Utah.  I visited the North Rim.

The Coral Pink Sand Dunes Park is in Kanab and you can visit this park after a day at the sanctuary.
