Humane Society of Utah Presents “Home for the Holidays”: A Heartwarming Foster Event for Shelter Dogs

Murray, Utah – Nov. 22, 2023 – The Humane Society of Utah (HSU) announces the return of  “Home for the Holidays,” set to occur on Nov. 22, 2023. This unique initiative aims to bring joy to both shelter dogs and families during the Thanksgiving weekend.

Event Details:

  • What: Home for the Holidays Event
  • Where: Humane Society of Utah, 4242 South 300 West, Murray, Utah 84107
  • Date & Time: Nov. 22, 2023, pick up times 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Event Description:

“Home for the Holidays” is an event designed to give shelter dogs a well-deserved break from the shelter environment during the Thanksgiving holiday. Preregistered members of the public will have the opportunity to pick up a shelter dog for the holiday weekend to provide them with love, care, and a warm home atmosphere. Temporary fostering offers the dogs a break from the shelter and helps them experience a loving family environment, potentially leading to permanent adoptions.

Interview and Visual Opportunities:

Media representatives are invited to attend the event to capture heartwarming moments as families connect with their temporary shelter dog companions. Representatives from the Humane Society of Utah will be available for interviews to discuss the event’s significance and its positive impact on shelter dogs.
