Welcome to the Humane Society of Utah.

Since 1960, the Humane Society of Utah has been sheltering abandoned animals, fighting cruelty and neglect, and creating an environment of respect, responsibility, and compassion for all animals across our state. HSU is an open-admissions shelter, meaning that our doors are always open for any animal that we can legally accept. We work hard to ensure that every healthy and treatable pet that enters our facility will be placed into a loving home. HSU is committed to reaching a 90% placement rate of dogs and cats by 2016, meaning that we will save the lives of over 9,000 companion animals each calendar year (this goal is based on our current annual intake of dogs and cats). 

We have no set limits on the length of time that a pet will remain in our adoption program. In our efforts to find all adoptable pets homes, HSU has already achieved the goal of placing all healthy and treatable dogs from our shelter for the past five years. We seek to achieve the same standard for cats within the next two years.
