Our Advocacy Department advocates for companion animals on the local, state, and federal level. We push for changes in the law to increase animal welfare, bring necessary support to Utah’s rescues and shelters, and preserve the human-animal bond. We are always looking for volunteers to assist in our efforts! If you would like to get involved, contact us or sign up for Advocacy Alerts.
