Lucy's Story

I had wanted a little kitty for quite some time, but was never quite able to get one. Once the time finally came, I was so excited to go find a new friend at HSU! When I saw Lucy, I knew I had to bring her home. She was so timid, and even afraid. She was hiding in the corners of the room and didn't want to come out to say hi. But I knew I could help to make her life better so I adopted her right away. We got her trimmed and all cleaned up, but she was still very afraid for quite a while. She hid under the bed a lot, especially during the day.

Henry's Story

I am currently a first year law student with a lot on my plate. I'm also a long-time dog lover, but I've never had my own. A couple of months ago I decided that adopting a furry companion was exactly what I needed to help ease the stress of school. On a whim, I contacted the Humane Society of Utah to see if there were any Pomeranians at the shelter. To my surprise, there was a four-year-old adoptable Pomeranian who had been found wandering South Jordan. From the moment I held Henry in my arms, I knew that I had met my new best friend. We're inseparable.

Adopt a rescued rabbit in February

MURRAY, UT (Feb. 4, 2016) -- Rabbits are the third most adopted pet at the Humane Society of Utah

 

To celebrate Adopt a Rescued Rabbit Month in February, the Humane Society of Utah is offering a special adoption fee of $10 for one rabbit or $15 for two. All rabbits are neutered or spayed, and HSU can help educate adopters on the proper equipment, care and training needed for their new pet bunny.

 

Rousette's Story

I adopted my sweet kitten, Rousette (formerly named Alice), from HSU about 2 weeks ago and I already cannot imagine my life without her. She is cute, friendly, well-behaved, and above all, my best friend. She improves my life in every way, and I could not be happier with my adoption.

Smoak's Story

My husband and I just bought our own home. We have always been around our parents' animals and we noticed we missed that love and companionship having an animal in the home brings. We decided to go look for a cat at the Human Society. This first cat we looked at ended up being the one who stole our hearts! She sat there so quietly and patiently and she was rated one of the best cats with kids!

Jake's Story

Jake had no idea about the adventures he was about to embark upon with our family when we met him for the first time and fell helplessly in love with him at the HSU. We lived with Jake in Utah for approximately 6 months before finding out we had an opportunity to live in Canada. As he had become a very loved and important member of our family we did not hesitate to include him in our big move. We drove all the way from Utah to Canada with Jake and discovered how much he enjoys long distance driving.

Cookie's Story

After a long search for a family dog, I happened upon Cookie during a Petco adoption. The staff were great and patient with me and my kids. Cookie has adjusted very well and adores the kids and sleeps with them every night. She has been a great running, biking, hiking and skiing partner for me, and man is she fast!!! I look forward to many happy years with Cookie. Thank you for making our adoption easy. We are thrilled with our newest addition to the family.

Kenai's Story

KENAI has become my sweet lovable baby who snuggles with me all the time and is a part of the family. My kids and hubby love him to death and he is well on his way to becoming a great service dog for me. He no longer has anxiety and stays close to home when let out. He is learning to socialize with other dogs without being scared and is good about letting strangers pet him without being afraid as long as I'm near. He alerts me when I'm sleeping to noises and has gained weight like a champ. He plays with toys and bounces through the house happy with his tail waving like a banner.
