MURRAY, UT (May 25, 2018) -- Memorial Day adoption special May 25-28 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) has 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 Friday, May 25, through Monday, May 28, 2018. The Animals for Armed Forces Foundation is generously covering 100 percent of adoption fees for military members and their immediate family. 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’re honored to be able to give back to those who have done so much for our country while helping find homes for our animals, ” said Lesley Gulledge, HSU development manager. “This adoption event will benefit many members since there are several military installations in Utah.”


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.


During this event last year, 56 pets found new homes with military members.


All animals adopted from the Humane Society of Utah are spayed or neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. HSU’s regular adoption process applies to ensure the best fit for both animal and adopter.


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.
