Coco's Story

I just wanted to send a message to the staff at the Humane Society of Utah to tell them thank you. We had such a great experience when looking for a 4 legged friend to join our home.
 

Tabitha's Story

Sweet Tabitha and I are coming up on our 3 year anniversary together this month and I just want to thank the Humane Society of Utah for caring for and bringing me together with the love of my life. Tabby had been dropped off at the shelter at least twice before I found her and was very shy and scared when she came to me. It's been amazing to watch her gain confidence and trust over the past 3 years. 
I'm so grateful I found her and have had the joy of providing her with her forever home. She is the best hiking partner, climbing buddy, and cuddler a girl could ask for.

Roxy's Story

Roxy, or sometimes called “The Wiggle”, has filled our home with love since we adopted her from The Humane Society. We first had to gain her trust by establishing a routine and gradually introducing her to new experiences. It wasn’t long before she accepted us into her heart.

 

Rainey's Story

I wanted to say thank you for giving me the opportunity to rehabilitate Rainey. She's been absolutely amazing. As of 24 hours after being in the home she now allows the leash without hesitation. Because she has given me such trust so quickly I have allowed her free range in my living room and kitchen and the ability to interact with Nala my husky. It has gone flawlessly. Rainey barks when she wants outside and is mimicking my husky for things she wants. I wanted to give you an update because I'm sure you're wondering about her progress. It's not baby steps. It's leaps and bounds.

Marshall's Story

We adopted Marshall July 16th, to be honest we were just looking to see if we were wanting a pet. We got to walk a couple of dogs and of course, our heart was set on each animal! Then we came across Marshall who was only 5 months old when we got him! He was on hold for another family when we first saw him but unfortunately, the other family was not able to take him and we were lucky to take him home with us. Marshall was told to have some quirks when we got him but, we have yet to see them. He is so friendly and great with animals.

Winnie's Story

Last October, our huge family Labrador passed away. I knew that I needed a companion because I am home alone for the majority of the day for the whole week. I also knew I needed someone small and cuddly. I went into the HSU with admittedly low expectations. Then, I met little Rigby on a warm March day. He was so nervous and shaky, but he still cuddled right up to me. It really was love at first sight. I re-named him Winnie, after WInnie The Pooh. He got back up to a healthy weight quickly, and really started to live up to his namesake-he is a big fan of sleeping, eating, and being lazy.

Indy's Story

We adopted our mutt-mix Indiana about a year and a half ago, and we couldn't love him more. He was picked up as a stray, so we don't know his back story, but he was so terrified and timid when we first brought him home. After a couple days, he warmed up, and now he's an amazing, playful, adventurous pup full of love. He loves snuggling with us on the couch, going on hikes, and playing tug-of-war. He's helped both me and my husband through emotionally difficult times - we're so grateful for him every day. We can't imagine life without our Indy. Thank you Human Society!

Cowboy's Story

My Husband adopted "Dollar" for me for my Birthday. He is a great little boy. His NEW name is COWBOY. He was really nervous at first but in the last week, he has adapted very well. He had been put in the HSU for 3 times. Happy to say never again. He gets along very well with my other dogs and my cats. He is a little Papillon. Very sweet and loves his family. Thanks for having him there to adopt. We love him!!!
