Kanab Best Friends, Southern Utah (Kanab)
Located in southern Utah, north of the Grand Canyon, this is the nation's largest sanctuary for abused and abandoned companion and domestic animals. The organization's aim is to "bring about a time when no homeless, unwanted animals are destroyed in shelters and when every dog or cat ever born can be guaranteed a good life in a good home."

Utah Lab Rescue is Utah's only Labrador Retriever Club and Rescue. The organization has non-profit 501(c)3 status and rescues mostly purebred Labradors from the local city shelters, and at times in other special circumstances. The group will be introducing a new program for senior Labradors, funded by their "Peykos Memorial Fund," newly created in honor of the Founder's own Labrador "Peykos" who died tragically in April 2006. This program will allow the group to take in and rehome, or keep with the founder, senior Labradors to give them that much-deserved opportunity to live their last days or years with love, not in a cold, dark shelter. Senior Labradors eligible for this program must be 8 years of age or older. Younger Labradors will be placed up for adoption under the normal adoption program.
