Founded in 1960, the Humane Society of Utah (HSU) has always fostered an atmosphere of love, compassion and respect for Utah’s pets and is dedicated to the elimination of pain, fear and suffering in all animals. The HSU is a member of the No Kill Utah Coalition and works hard to ensure that every healthy and treatable pet that enters our facility will be placed into a loving home. There is no set limit on the length of time an animal may remain in our adoption program.
HSU is an open-admissions shelter, meaning that our doors are always open for any animal that we can legally accept. In 2014, an expansion and renovation project was completed which allowed the HSU to save a record 10,481 pets. Through an education-focused adoption process, positive image promotion of shelter pets, and our many other programs and services, even more animals are expected to be saved in 2015.
