Echo and Yoshi's Story

We adopted Echo about a year ago and have loved having her in our lives. We noticed that she seemed to have anxiety problems related to our leaving her home alone when we went to work, so, we decided to look into getting another cat to keep her company. 

We took Yoshi in on a two-week trial to make sure he got along with Echo; of course, we fell in love with him right away so we were released when the two seemed to tolerate each other ok. They still aren't BFFs but Echo is happier now she isn't alone, and Yoshi is pretty laid back. 

Rosco's Story

Hi my name is Mallory & almost a year ago I adopted "peewee" who is now Rosco. Rosco is a German shepherd mix & is the absolute best dog I have ever had. He had some serious anxiety issues when we first got him, most likely from a past that was unpleasant. When I went to pick him up the described to me how he was missing some teeth in the front as well. Over the course of this year, it has been amazing me & Rosco both healing one another. He is so well behaved & I can take him anywhere he's allowed.

Pancake's Story

I fostered a beautiful Flame Point Siamese named Pancake. He was ten years old and turned in because of another pet. He was adopted and brought back because someone was allergic to him and I felt bad and decided to adopt him myself. It was kitten season and at that time it is harder for older cats to get adopted. He was stressed out and I had trouble with him urinating on my carpet and he had been checked out by the vet and there was no bladder problems just behavioral issues. For a long time I kept him in the bathroom when I was away or in bed at night.

Rugby's Story

In November 1996, I adopted an orange and white tabby cat from the Humane society of Utah. I named him Rugby and he was never apart from me after that. I grew up, got married, moved from apartments to new homes. I started a family and all along he was there beside me. He lived a long, healthy life and passed away peacefully on Friday, Aug. 12, 2016. Thank you so much for allowing me the opportunity to bring him into a loving home, and for all the services you continue to provide at the Humane Society of Utah.

Polly's Story

I wanted to send a thank you for allowing me to adopt Polly on 08/03/16. I went to the Humane Society after leaving the Vets office. Sadly I had to have a rescue cat that I had cared for put to sleep. She had Breast Cancer. I wanted to find another cat that needed a good home & to distract me from the loss of Lily. Polly has distracted me for sure. As you can see, she has made herself right at home. The description of her on the card was spot on. I can't go into another room without her trotting by my side. So far she has not tried to go outside which I'm happy about.

Luna's Story

We adopted Luna, an older black lab from the HSU around 4.5 years ago. She was gray, scared, and had a limp. I bet a lot of people walked past this wonderful animal before we came around. Luna was sweet, and seemed very smart. She convinced us to adopt her by rolling over when we asked. She turned out to be the best dog I've ever had. She was smart, sweet, well behaved, good with people and other dogs. Not so good with deer, raccoons and skunks. My family loved her so much. I often thought that I would love to meet her former owners and ask why on earth they would give her up.
