Adopting an animal is gaining a family member for the life of that pet. This can be a commitment of up to 20 years for a puppy or kitten!
Our shelter is a stray facility, which means the animals we shelter have been lost or have been abandoned. These animals have been rescued by Animal Services Officers and citizens who have been unable to locate an owner.
Based on Utah state law, we must hold every animal for at least five days to give the owner an opportunity to redeem their lost pet. If the pet is not claimed during that time, and the animal is healthy and friendly, it will become available for adoption.
Adoptions are offered during our operating hours Monday through Saturday from 10:00 AM through 6:00 PM. Potential adopters should plan for some time to meet with their new pet before starting the adoption process. Please plan to be at the shelter before 5:30 PM to meet with a new pet.
If you are looking for a new pet companion, visit the shelter at any time during open hours or visit the
adoptable pet section.
