HSU Animals Going "Home For The Holiday!"
Humane Society Volunteers will clear our Kennels on Christmas Thanks to the hospitality of Humane Society of Utah volunteers, many animals available for adoption at the HSU will be spending this Christmas in warm homes, surrounded by kind, loving people!
“A lot of our animals will truly have something to be thankful for,” says Jamie Usry, the Humane Society of Utahʼs Volunteer & Special Events Co-ordinator who is starting what will hopefully become an annual event. “Our volunteers have really responded by generously opening their homes to many of our animals this Christmas.”
Instead of spending another day in the kennels at our shelter, these lucky cats and dogs will get to spend the holiday in homes of HSU volunteers, sharing time and perhaps a bit of the holiday feast! Volunteers will pick up the animals from 3-5 pm this Christmas Eve (Saturday, December 24). The media is welcome to speak with Jamie Usry about this program at the HSUʼs holiday “Exodus.”
“By getting these animals into homes, even for a little while, we hope to make the holidays more meaningful for our volunteers...and allow these dogs and cats to socialize more with people and other pets, making them even better candidates for adoption once they return to the shelter.”
