The Humane Society of Utah transfer team has a new name—Shelter Overpopulation Animal Rescue or SOAR for short. In 2020, our transfer team gave 2,657 at-risk animals a second chance by bringing them to the Humane Society of Utah to offer medical and behavioral help and to find new loving homes through our adoption center.
The mission of SOAR is simple—to save as many lives as we can. SOAR partners with over 150 shelters and rescue groups across Utah and neighboring states to safely transfer animals from overcrowded and underfunded shelters to the Humane Society of Utah.
"What breed of dog is that?" This is one of the most common questions we hear at the Humane Society of Utah. What breed would you guess for this Utah Humane Society alum, Rosco? Rosco came to our shelter two years ago with his littermates. His family recently sent her DNA results to us, which we have shared below.
The year 2020 has posed a lot of challenges, but that hasn't stopped our Humane Education program. After a few adjustments, we were able to continue reaching school-age children via Zoom presentations.
In 2020, our Humane Education team has taught 6,778 children—2,656 of those children were educated virtually.
Not only are we reaching kids across the Salt Lake Valley, but also school districts as far north as Cache County and all the way to St. George, Utah.
- A maximum of eight campers with three staff members. Campers will stay together all day, each day.
- To minimize the sharing of high-touch materials, each camper will be given their own plastic tote to use all week. They will be given all of their own supplies, which will be kept in their tote. The tote will also be used to store items from home.
