Summer Safety and Hot Weather Pet Tips

MURRAY, UT (July 22, 2019)—Summer concerns for pet owners from the Humane Society of Utah 
 
 
Safety concerns increase with the temperatures as more pets spend time outdoors during the summer months. The extreme heat poses dangers for people and pets alike.  Pet owners should minimize outside exposure for their pets during the day to prevent heat exhaustion and heatstroke. If you notice signs or symptoms of heat-related illness in your pet, take them to your veterinarian immediately. Heatstroke can be fatal if not treated promptly.
 

Our History

The Humane Society of Utah fosters an atmosphere of love, compassion, and respect for Utah’s pets and is dedicated to the elimination of pain, fear, and suffering in all animals. We work hard to ensure that every healthy and treatable pet that enters our facility will be placed in a loving home, and there is no set limit on the length of time an animal may remain in our adoption program.
 

Meet Melinda, our July Volunteer of the Month!

Melinda began her journey as a volunteer back in 2014! In that time she has become an integral member of our special events volunteer team. No matter how big or small, close or far, if it's a special event to support the animals here you will find Melinda there. She wraps presents in December, checks in patrons during Picture Your Pet with Santa, manages the Puppy Room at the Gala, helps to coordinate check-in at Bark at the Moon and so much more. Her love and special connection to animals is obvious in all of the work she does with us.
