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. The HSU is a member of the No-Kill Utah (NKUT) Coalition and works hard to ensure that every healthy and treatable pet that enters our facility will be placed into a loving home. There is no set limit on the length of time an animal may remain in our adoption program.
HSU is an open-admission shelter, meaning that our doors are always open for any animal that we can legally accept. In 2014, an expansion and renovation project was completed which allowed the HSU to save more pets than ever before. Through an education-focused adoption process, positive promotion of shelter pets, and our many other programs and services, even more animals are expected to be saved in the future.
The Humane Society of Utah recognizes that the key to reducing the euthanasia of pets in Utah is through controlling the pet population. In 2017, 10,050 dogs, cats and rabbits were spayed/neutered by our veterinarians – 3,665 of which were owned animals and 6,051 were shelter pets. The HSU Clinic also administered 109,935 dog and cat vaccinations to ensure the health of owned pets in the community.
2,616 animals at risk of euthanasia were transferred to our facility in 2017 to reduce the burden on other smaller shelters across the state of Utah and neighboring states.
HSU currently embraces and will continue to expand a variety of programs to save more lives each year.
Thank you for your support of the Humane Society of Utah!
