The Humane Society of Utah (HSU) held a transfer and rescue partner swap Sunday, Jan. 17 at the HSU facility located in Murray, Utah to trade pet food and supplies, medical items, pet toys, blankets and other products needed by local animal rescue groups and shelters.

That is a record number of adoptions as well and we thank our amazing staff for their hard work.
