Luke's Story

We went in to HSU to meet this adorable 11-month-old rat named Luke. One of our 3 fatty ratties had recently passed away & you could tell the 2 were missing their brother.
When we stopped in, I went straight to the cage & pulled him out. The volunteer in the small animal area made a sound of amazement & told me that I was the very 1st person that Luke did not nip at. It was instant love! 

Teague's Story

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.

Steve's Story

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.

Copper's Story

We just wanted to say thank you so much for all you do!
We adopted our big yellow lab Cash (now Copper) on March 10, 2018 and we already can’t imagine life without him!
We love him so much! He fits perfectly in with our family.
Thanks for helping us find him!

Coco's Story

I just wanted to send a message to the staff at the Humane Society of Utah to tell them thank you. We had such a great experience when looking for a 4 legged friend to join our home.
 

Tabitha's Story

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.

Roxy's Story

Roxy, or sometimes called “The Wiggle”, has filled our home with love since we adopted her from The Humane Society. We first had to gain her trust by establishing a routine and gradually introducing her to new experiences. It wasn’t long before she accepted us into her heart.

 

Sinbad's Story

The 2-month-old kitten ("Rusty", renamed Sinbad, #A107980) I adopted from you is now a little over a year old, so I thought I'd share the joy with you.
 
As you can see in the picture, while he's bigger now, that lovable kitten is still discernible in his face, and that shock of white hair just under his chin is still there.
 
He's a wonderful companion, cuddly yet feisty (like a true orange tabby), and I look forward to many more years with him.
 
Thanks for fostering him and letting me adopt him.
 

Luna's Story

I had a sudden urge to add to my little family in December 2017, so I went looking for a cat. I had originally gone in to look at two others, but when I laid eyes on Luna (then known as Boo) and she rolled on her back and offered her tummy, I knew it was love at first sight. Luna is now spoiled rotten with love, toys, treats, and tags along with me and her new brother, Leo, everywhere I go. She is the most loving cat I’ve ever had the honor of knowing!
