About the Shelter
Founded in 1960, the Humane Society of Utah (HSU) works hard to ensure that every healthy and treatable pet that enters their facility will be placed into a loving home. There is no set limit on the length of time an animal may remain in their adoption program.
HSU is an open-admissions shelter, meaning that their doors are always open for any animal that can legally be accepted. In 2014, an expansion and renovation project was completed which allowed the HSU to save a record 10,481 pets. Through an education-focused adoption process, positive image promotion of shelter pets, and our many other programs and services, even more animals are expected to be saved in 2015. The Humane Society of Utah requires significant resources to continue providing programs to animals in need.
