Strudel's Story

My son adopted Strudel about 9 months ago. Strudel has become his emotional support dog. Getting him through the death of a grandma, two beloved family pets, the death of a friend, and the ending of a relationship. He is so loving and quirky we love when they visit. He has become all of our little buddy. He makes us smile even on the worst day. Thank you and thank God for Strudel!!!!!!!!

Archie's Story

We adopted Archie (previously Cooper) last September. I knew instantly that I needed to save him, and we have come to realize that he saved us! Archie was too afraid to walk on a leash, go through doors, get in a car, or meed new people. He would pancake on the floor and we had to pick him up to move him. Now, he loves his new home! He has made SO many new friends and he loves to run and play. His big (little) sister, absolutely adores him and helped him see the world isn't as scary as he thought. I suffer from Manic Depression and Archie knows when I am having an episode.

Korra's Story

This is our 7 year old rescue named Korra! She is the light of our lives! When we saw her at HSU, she was shaking and had lots of anxiety from being in a shelter. We could tell immediately that she needed a family who would give her all the attention and love. Korra loves her dad the most, but knows to run to mom to get her favorite treats. Her orange ball is her favorite toy and she has become so good at fetch! Korra touches the lives of everyone she meets and we are so grateful to HSU for the great care they took of her, until she came into our lives.

Rizzo's Story

This is Rizzo (Portobello) adopted two weeks ago with his sister, Gracie, who I adopted a year and a half ago. Rizzo is gaining both weight and confidence. He has learned so much in a very short time. He is even learning to play with a ball with Gracie! Thank you for bringing such a sweet dog to Utah so I could adopt him!

Koda's Story

Layla/Koda, Husky

I adopted Koda (previously Layla) a little over a month ago, and I can honestly say it is one of the best decisions I have made in my life. Koda loves her new home, and has made many new friends since I adopted her. She has continued her physical therapy as her Physical Therapist recommends, and had her first Hydrotherapy appointment since I adopted her yesterday (3-18-17), she truly loves the employees there. Koda has been helping me with my anxiety, really helping me out a lot, and helps me when I have anxiety attacks. She is an incredibly empathetic and intuitive friend.

Kisser and IntiGaia's Story

My previously adopted dog died in October. Then one day in April, at a stoplight a block from my house, listening to Public Radio, they mentioned the adoption day. Just a peek, enough to bring back the real memory of all of the dogs I had as companions, barking and sniffing their way through all of my hard and joyful times. Instead of going home, I turned down the hill, and said, I need to see and touch them just a minute. The HSU doors opened.

Raven's Story

Raven is doing so well here with us. We just love her! She is the biggest cuddler! She loves to play in the water and fetch her ball and sticks. I have lots of other pictures of her on my Facebook page. Not sure how to send a link yet. She lives to go to tanner dog park and play with all the other dogs. It's an off leash park that she loves to go to. I'm so glad we got to adopt her.

Goldie's Story

We lost our dog a couple months before we visited the Humane Society. She was old and it was her time. Well, our other dog was rather lonely because since a pup he's always had another dog around. So we came out to the Humane Society. We looked at a couple dogs but never found one we liked. We finally found one that one of the staff members was taking care of at her house because of medical things the dog had. After emailing her and setting up a meet and greet. We loved her. The dog's name is Goldie! Super happy dog and we even brought our dog to meet her.

Izzy and Bella's Story

I brought Bella and Izzy home on a beautiful October day. I knew I eventually wanted two or more, but had been planning on just one that day. They were playing together so well and the attendant said they came up together from LA and had been playing most of the time. The minute I held them my heart just melted.

I was nervous but had asked lots of questions to make sure they would fit my lifestyle. Having them made my home lighter and more joyful:)

Copper's Story

We just wanted to say thank you so much for all you do!
We adopted our big yellow lab Cash (now Copper) on March 10, 2018 and we already can’t imagine life without him!
We love him so much! He fits perfectly in with our family.
Thanks for helping us find him!
