Murray, UT (May 24, 2019) — Adoption special May 24-27 at Utah Humane
To honor and thank those who have served our country in the armed forces, Utah Humane 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 24, through Monday, May 27, 2019. The Animals for Armed Forces Foundation is generously covering 100% of adoption fees for military members and their immediate family. The Utah Humane Adoption Center located at 4242 S 300 W in Murray, Utah, will be open Memorial Day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
“Pets benefit our lives in so many ways, and the companionship offered by a pet can help military members and their families,” said Vaughn Maurice, Utah Humane executive director. “A pet may help someone suffering from PTSD, traumatic stress, or simply offer comfort to loved ones while an active family member is away.”
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.
All animals adopted from Utah Humane are spayed or neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. The regular adoption process applies during events to ensure the best fit for both the animal and the adopter.
A photo ID and one of the following is required to receive the adoption discount: military ID, dependent ID, DD-214 and Driver’s License, or NGB Form 22.
Information about holiday hours of operation and all animals available for adoption may be viewed online at www.utahhumane.org/adopt.
