Kenai's Story

I just wanted to update the HSU family on how Kenai, now more affectionately known as Kee. My sweet boy has amazed his vet with his ability to trust me. We were able to do x-rays of his back and hips while on his back with no sedative. I put him on the table and he laid his head back on my shoulder while I spoke to him in Gaelic. His vet said in his 20 years he had never seen such a thing. I knew when I saw this beautiful boy on the website and heard his story and that nobody would take a chance on him that he had to be mine.

Jacque & Jesper

In 2001 mom took us as a family to the Humane Society to look for a kitten as luck would have it we came home with two. We named them Sugar and Spice because they were both white and Sugar pure white with pink ears had the sweetest personality and Spice was super feisty with a little bit of orange they were bundles of joy and super healthy happy kittens until spice ate some plastic and had to have surgery when he was a couple years old.

Rosie's Story

We went to the shelter to "look" at dogs, but knowing me, of course I was going to get one. We went in and looked at all the big dogs, all of them very very cute, but right when we got to June (her name was Rosie at the time) we knew she was the one. We took her out on a walk and I sat on the grass and she just plopped down next to me and I immediately started crying. I was so happy when we got her. At first, her fur was kind of gray and frizzy and dead, she was very scared, she wouldn't eat, and she was very quiet.

Hooch's Story

We adopted out senior, Hooch, almost a year ago. He's the best dog and so sweet. He loves his brother and sister kitties too. I'm so glad he is part of our family.

Max's Story

This is Max. When we adopted him he was a skinny 60lbs and his fur was in mats and had to be shaved. But with lots of love and plenty of naps on his new warm bed he has gained healthy weight and loves every second of his forever home!

HSU statement on abandonment of three dogs in Woods Cross

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.

Face's Story

I was terrified of dogs since forever. However, at 6 my parents adopted Jack for me. After a quick name change, Face and I became fast friends. I got over my fear of dogs, and Face became my best friend.

Mathis's Story

My husband and I never imagined getting a cat since we both grew up having pet dogs. But as faith will have it, our two-year-old son is a "cat lover". Thanks to the Ikea stuff toy cat that he adores and his purring session with the FurReal friends Bootsie the cat. We tried to introduce him to dogs and puppies but his heart didn't sway. So when it came down to brainstorming for this year's Christmas present, we knew what to get him.
