The Humane Society of Utah (HSU) currently embraces, and will continue to expand, a variety of programs to save more lives each year.
Veterinary care and sterilization surgeries for all homeless companion animals in our care (over 10,000 spays/neuters performed per year).
Affordable spay/neuter and vaccination services for the community at our in-house Clinic.
Foster Care in the homes of over 300 volunteers for special needs, ill, injured or baby animals to ensure adoptability.
Humane Education about responsible pet ownership, the humane treatment of animals and the homeless pet population crisis.
Transfer and Rescue network of over 140 partner facilities and groups to place more dogs and cats.
Behavior assessments, positive reinforcement training and enrichment activities to keep pets mentally and emotionally healthy while at our shelter.
Positive marketing and social media to increase the visibility of adoptable pets and engage the public in our efforts to control the pet population and increase adoptions (like Flower, pictured to the right, one of the many pets featured in our Photobooth Dogs series).
