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!

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.
