In the midst of holiday celebration, we’re sadly reminded of the gruesome suffering some animals endure. Three extremely emaciated dogs were abandoned in a Woods Cross, Utah, home when the owners were evicted. We’re thankful to Davis County Animal Control for taking care of these dogs and to the police for their due diligence in arresting the couple responsible. The Humane Society of Utah asks that the Luceros are held responsible for these acts of animal cruelty and be charged to the full extent of the law.

Spencer Pedersen, a 26-year-old male, was arrested by Provo police officers Wednesday, Nov. 16, 2017, on reports of torturing and killing eight cats in Provo, Utah. A witness reported finding the dead cats in his backyard over the past few weeks. One cat was found with a rope around its neck and one in a nearby trash can near Pedersen’s residence.
The Humane Society of Utah (HSU) is adding $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible for shooting a Doberman dog named Chunk in Gusher, Utah. The HSU hopes the reward assists the Uintah County Animal Control and Shelter in obtaining information required to identify and charge whoever is responsible for this allegedly intentional act of senseless animal cruelty.
We have an amazing team at the Humane Society of Utah. It takes a lot of hard work from the staff and volunteers to save so many animals and do such great work, which is why we're proud to be recognized for our efforts by CNN on National Puppy Day March 23, 2016! We're grateful to our amazing photographer, Guinnevere Shuster, for helping to positively promote the image of shelter animals through her photography.
