    Stray Listings

    If you have lost your pet, the Humane Society of Utah urges you to visit your local Animal Control shelter first. The Humane Society of Utah does not take in as many strays as the Animal Control shelter does. The chances of finding your lost pet are higher if you check with Animal Control first.

    Community Outreach

    The community outreach department is the fastest growing and most dynamic new venture by the Humane Society of Utah. The outreach department is responsible for off-site adoptions of Humane Society animals. This new concept in animal welfare is aimed at bringing animals and education to the public. Research has shown that people are reluctant to visit animal shelters due to the inherent sadness of a shelter environment and the endless selection of animals. Many people find it easier to choose from a smaller selection of animals.

    Receiving

    The Humane Society of Utah has an "open-door" policy. We are not a limited-access facility. All domestic animals (excluding livestock) which are turned in to our shelter are evaluated in terms of their adoptability. Factors like temperament, age, health, etc. are considered before they are put up for adoption. The HSU adoption rates for adoptable dogs in 2011 was 100%, and 95% of the cats found good new homes. (The national adoption rate is only about 25%.)
