Volunteer Week
Special thanks to our Best Friends volunteers with treats, discounts and events this week.
April 10, 2016

We appreciate the time and effort our volunteers devote to the animals and to Best Friends every day. But for one week in April, the entire nation celebrates the power and devotion all volunteers contribute to our society. In thanks, all week long April 10-16, we at Best Friends have special treats and events in store for our volunteers.

  • Enjoy homemade vegetarian or vegan treats provided by Best Friends staff at all Utah program locations.
  • Get 25% off Best Friends and NKUT branded merchandise at our Pet Adoption Center store.
  • Join us for events sponsored by organizations all across the Wasatch Front (see below).

 Thank you for all you do for the animals! If you aren't yet a volunteer, visit volunteers.bestfriends.org or email utahvolunteer@bestfriends.org to learn more!
