Business Details

Description

The Humane Society of Utah took in more than 11,000 owner-relinquished
animals in 2011 and expects to do so once again in 2012. On average, the
HSU facilitates adoptions for more than 7,000 homeless animals each year.
And the HSU does this without any support from tax payers or government
agencies. Relying upon donations from the public the Humane Society
staff conducts on-site and mobile adoptions; provides comprehensive
medical services for shelter animals; operates an in-house clinic for low
cost sterilization procedures and vaccinations; offers a foster care/parent
program for animals with special needs; and operates a rescue/transfer
program which networks with rescue groups around the nation. In addition
to all that, the Humane Society also has a full time investigator who
responds to cases of animal cruelty and neglect throughout the state. Plus,
our shelter, celebrating its’ 52nd year of operation, offers pet facilitated
therapy, education programs in public schools, behavior and training
classes, a volunteer program, adopt-a-thons, and therapy visits to
residences in nursing homes and assisted living centers. More than 300
volunteers assist the Humane Society with various daily activities and
operations and the shelter relies upon 100 foster families to help achieve
the organization’s mission: the elimination of pain, fear, and suffering in
all animals.
