Adoption Process

As we navigate through the challenges of this COVID-19 pandemic, the Utah Humane Society reinforces our ongoing commitment to the health and safety of our employees, volunteers, and our community. To adhere to social distancing requirements, we are implementing the following temporary changes to our adoption process:

  • Adoptions are done by appointment only until further notice. We have worked to get many of our pets out of the shelter and into foster homes during this crisis and need to coordinate a meeting with the animal and interested adopter.
  • View available pets below and call us if interested in a pet to be considered. We will pre-screen applicants over the phone and schedule an appointment. Adoptions are made on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • At this time, we are accepting credit card payments only, no cash transactions.
  • Only adopters with an appointment will be admitted into our Adoption Center. Other visitors may be asked to leave to enforce social distancing.

Please call us at (801) 261-2919 ext. 227 with any questions or concerns. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
