We lost our dog a couple months before we visited the Humane Society. She was old and it was her time. Well, our other dog was rather lonely because since a pup he's always had another dog around. So we came out to the Humane Society. We looked at a couple dogs but never found one we liked. We finally found one that one of the staff members was taking care of at her house because of medical things the dog had. After emailing her and setting up a meet and greet. We loved her. The dog's name is Goldie! Super happy dog and we even brought our dog to meet her.

We recently adopted Missy Elliot and Shakira from HSU and it was an amazing experience. Everyone was very nice and helpful throughout the process of their adoption. These two cuties have free range of the home with supervision and a shared pen for night time. They are settling in very well and are very sweet buns.
In October, HSU featured a Black Cat special right before Halloween. My husband and I went expecting to get a kitty, but fell in love with an adult cat named Riku instead. The moment I entered his room, he came to me for attention. After sitting with him in my lap for several minutes, I knew that I had not come here to choose a cat - I had come here for this cat to choose me.
I brought Bella and Izzy home on a beautiful October day. I knew I eventually wanted two or more, but had been planning on just one that day. They were playing together so well and the attendant said they came up together from LA and had been playing most of the time. The minute I held them my heart just melted.
I was nervous but had asked lots of questions to make sure they would fit my lifestyle. Having them made my home lighter and more joyful:)
On June 9, 2017 my 13 year old son and I stopped by the Humane Society to visit Kitty City. We have a spoiled, obnoxious 7 year old Siamese, Sam at home and have never thought about getting a second cat, just stopped by to visit and scratch a few chins. Five days later I received an email for an adoption event that weekend. I showed it to my son and something just told me we should go. If, a big IF, we get another cat, I wanted an older kitten or one about a year old. Saturday 6/17/17 we get up early and head to the PetsMart for the adoption event.
We adopted a rabbit at Christmas time two years ago from the Humane Society of Utah. His name is Steve. He has become a great pet and a member of the family. Here are a few pictures of him in the garden (he does live in the house/garage depending on temperature). Bunny heaven! Thanks for helping these animals out.
Sweet Tabitha and I are coming up on our 3 year anniversary together this month and I just want to thank the Humane Society of Utah for caring for and bringing me together with the love of my life. Tabby had been dropped off at the shelter at least twice before I found her and was very shy and scared when she came to me. It's been amazing to watch her gain confidence and trust over the past 3 years.
I'm so grateful I found her and have had the joy of providing her with her forever home. She is the best hiking partner, climbing buddy, and cuddler a girl could ask for.
