Best Friends Animal Society has introduced the next level in pet-centric lodging with the opening of its Best Friends Roadhouse and Mercantile. Not only does the Roadhouse and Mercantile cater to the traveling public in search of pet-friendly accommodations, it fully supports the lifesaving work of Best Friends Animal Society.

The Roadhouse was designed by Salt Lake City architects Wow Atelier and interior designer Jillian Kliewer, and is located among the famous red rocks of Kanab, Utah. The Roadhouse offers travelers and their pets 30 regular rooms and 10 suites, including two two-level suites, all with pet-thoughtful amenities like durable fabrics and sleeping areas with pet mattresses, as well as complimentary washing stations, a fenced-in pet-park area with water features, along with pet walking and sitting services. Two of the rooms are specifically designed to accommodate cats.
