MURRAY, UT (Nov. 5, 2020) — Animal adoption special Nov. 7–8 at Humane Society of Utah
To honor and thank those who have served our country in the armed forces, the Humane Society of Utah 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 Saturday, Nov. 7, through Sunday, Nov. 8, 2020. The Animals for Armed Forces Foundation is generously covering 100% of adoption fees for military members. The Humane Society of Utah Adoption Center located at 4242 S 300 W in Murray, Utah, will be open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day.
“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, Humane Society of Utah 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, Space Force, Coast Guard, and National Guard.
All animals adopted from the Humane Society of Utah 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.
