MURRAY, UT (May 26, 2017) -- Memorial Day adoption special May 26-29 at the Humane Society of Utah

In celebration of Memorial Day and to honor and thank those who have served our country in the armed forces, the Humane Society of Utah (HSU) along with 29 other animal shelters across the country have partnered with the Animals for Armed Forces Foundation to waive the adoption fees for all active and retired military looking to adopt a new pet. The Animals for Armed Forces Foundation is generously covering 100 percent of adoption fees to military members and their immediate family Friday, May 26, through Monday, May 29, 2017. The HSU adoption center located at 4242 S 300 W in Murray, Utah will be open Memorial Day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“We feel that this adoption event will benefit many members here since there are several military installations in Utah,” said Lesley Gulledge, HSU membership and grants coordinator. “It touches my heart to know we’re helping shelter animals find homes and giving back to those who have served at the same time.”

This fee-waived adoption special applies to active duty, reserve and veterans of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and National Guard.

To receive the adoption discount, a photo ID and one of the following is required: military ID, dependent ID, DD-214 and Driver’s License, or NGB Form 22.
