It is said that many hands make for lighter work.

It is through partnerships with like-minded organizations that companies can truly have an impact for the greater good.

Ruffwear is extremely excited and proud to give you a sneak peek at a new partnership we have formed with an organization that is leading the way in animal welfare – Best Friends Animal Society.

bfas-logo-staOver the next two months, we will be rolling out the details of our new multi-year relationship with Best Friends as we join forces to help further their mission as well as help find forever companions for active dogs at their Animal Sanctuary in southern Utah.

To kick off our partnership, we are headed to Kanab, UT on Monday, March 16 to spend a week at the Sanctuary, getting to know their team, shooting some photos and videos, and spending quality time with their dogs.

panoBestFriendsAnimalSanctuaryWhat is the Sanctuary? At the heart of Best Friends is the Sanctuary, where, at any given time, up to 2,000 animals are getting a new lease on life, receiving the medical help they need, and getting love and acceptance (and a little bit of training!) to help them overcome their past. While searching for their forever homes, they live in a scenic, healing environment among human and animal friends. The Sanctuary lies on 3,700 acres of beautiful western landscape, surrounded by 17,000 additional acres that are leased from the federal government. Over 25,000 people visit every year to meet the animals, volunteer their time to help out, and tour what has become the nation’s largest no-kill sanctuary for companion animals.

We encourage you to learn more about the Sanctuary HERE and maybe even think about planning your next vacation to this beautiful part of the world. While there, you can spend some time volunteering to help with their animals, take a dog for a hike, and even visit nearby Zion National Park.

  1. This is incredible news! I’ve been a fan of Best Friends since I read the founders’ book when I was 10 years old- my family took me on vacation there as a teen and it was a highlight trip for sure! Love Ruffwear products for my dogs now, and can’t wait to see how your partnership will evolve 🙂
