STATEMENT ON POSTPONING OUR MAY 2ND GALA:

This year, the Utah Humane Society will celebrate 60 years of dedication to the elimination of pain, fear, and suffering in companion animals. Our WAGS TO WISHES Gala, originally scheduled for May 2, 2020, was to be the kick-off of that celebration.

In light of the recent and rapid spread of COVID-19, the actions taken by local, state, and federal authorities to modify the impact of this international crisis, and most of all in consideration of our many supporters, we will be postponing our May 2nd event.

The good news is we were able to secure a new date with the Cleone Peterson Eccles Alumni House so the party will go on!  Our WAGS TO WISHES GALA will now be held on Saturday, December 12, 2020.  All ticket purchases will be honored for the new date.  If you have any additional questions or comments, please contact Karin Duncker, Director of Development, at 801-261-2919, karin@utahhumane.org

We hope to raise a glass with you in December and celebrate the work we do, your ongoing support, and the vital connection between our community and mission to Change Their World.

 

Join us for our annual Wags to Wishes Gala on Dec. 12, 2020, at the University of Utah Cleone Peterson Eccles Alumni House.

This year, the Utah Humane Society is celebrating our 60th Anniversary! We are excited to announce we are hosting at a new venue, the Cleone Peterson Eccles Alumni House at the University of Utah.
