How to Help with Barking

Barking is an important method of communication for dogs but this can be an issue if the barking is persistent or excessive. Below are some ideas to address this common issue.  

What to Do 

  • Identify when, where, and why the dog is barking. If you know what triggers the barking, you can come up with a plan to reduce or prevent it. For example, if your dog is barking at other dogs passing by the front window, you can block her access to the window or apply window film that will obscure her view.

A Foster Hospice Story

On November 4, 2019, a 6-year-old white and tan happy-go-lucky dog came to our shelter. Her name was Wendy, and while we see tons of animals every day, there was something special about this one. Perhaps it was the gigantic grin she had spread across her round, squishy face or the way she would trustingly (and often unexpectedly) wiggle her way into a stranger’s lap for cuddles. Initially, we had no problem finding her a home. She was quickly taken in by a foster family, where she happily stayed until she developed a cough and had to come back to our shelter for a wellness check.

Action Alert: Universal Charitable Deduction

We need your help!

Congress is currently considering legislation that will increase charitable giving to nonprofit organizations such as the Utah Humane Society. Contact your Congressperson and tell them that you support a universal charitable deduction and they should, too. 

How To Rehome Your Pet

Finding a new home for your pet will likely take time, patience, and effort. However, it will be significantly less stressful for the pet to stay out of the unfamiliar surroundings of the shelter, where anxiety and fear are natural reactions that make adoption more challenging. No one knows your pet better than you, and best of all, you will be able to choose your pet’s new home.
