Founded in 1960, the Humane Society of Utah (HSU) has always fostered an atmosphere of love, compassion and respect for Utah’s pets and is dedicated to the elimination of pain, fear and suffering in all animals.
As the largest and most effective animal shelter in the state, the HSU provides the following programs to benefit Utah communities: affordable spay/neuter and vaccination services; transfer and rescue of at-risk pets from other smaller shelters; life-saving surgeries and foster care; receiving of owner-surrendered pets; sheltering of homeless animals and adoption into new loving homes; education about the humane treatment of animals and the homeless pet population crisis; cruelty investigations of animal abuse and neglect around the state; and the promotion of legislation and ordinances that will enhance the welfare of animals in Utah.
As an open-admissions shelter, the doors are always open for any animal that can be legally accepted. The HSU is a member of the No-Kill Utah Coalition and works hard to ensure that every healthy and treatable pet that enters the facility will be placed into a loving home. Over 11,000 pets are expected to receive positive outcomes in 2015.
The Humane Society of Utah is a 501(c)(3) private nonprofit organization that does not receive any tax dollars or government funding and is not a branch of any national organization. It is solely funded by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses and foundations. Read more about the HSU online at http://www.utahhumane.org.
