Halloween pet safety tips 2018

MURRAY, UT (Oct. 24, 2018) --The Humane Society of Utah reminds pet owners to keep pets safe during holiday events

 

Halloween can be a scary time for pets. The Humane Society of Utah (HSU) reminds pet owners that holiday festivities may be stressful for their furry family members and encourages extra attention when opening doors to costumed visitors and partygoers.

 

Kisser and IntiGaia's Story

My previously adopted dog died in October. Then one day in April, at a stoplight a block from my house, listening to Public Radio, they mentioned the adoption day. Just a peek, enough to bring back the real memory of all of the dogs I had as companions, barking and sniffing their way through all of my hard and joyful times. Instead of going home, I turned down the hill, and said, I need to see and touch them just a minute. The HSU doors opened.

Raven's Story

Raven is doing so well here with us. We just love her! She is the biggest cuddler! She loves to play in the water and fetch her ball and sticks. I have lots of other pictures of her on my Facebook page. Not sure how to send a link yet. She lives to go to tanner dog park and play with all the other dogs. It's an off leash park that she loves to go to. I'm so glad we got to adopt her.

Happy Adopt a Dog Month!

Right now, there are 40 homeless dogs at the Humane Society of Utah (HSU) with so much love to give. And every day more come through our doors in need of a new loving home.

Thanks everyone, you did it!

We are honored by your trust and support. Thank you so very much for helping us reach our Matching Gift Challenge goal!

And a HUGE thanks to Utah’s Wasatch Front Subaru Retailers for making this lifesaving campaign possible.
