Success Stories

You are here

At the Humane Society of Utah (HSU) we LOVE to hear about animals that were adopted from us. In addition to brightening our days, success stories help others learn about adopting from the HSU and the emotions connected with adopted animals.

If you are interested in sharing your HSU adoption story, visit our Humane Society of Utah Adopted Pets Facebook group.​ We routinely pull stories from there to share publically on our main Facebook Page.
If you're on Instagram instead, tag your adopted pet posts with #HSUPets or tag @UtahHumane to share with us.

Success Stories may be published on this website after review. By posting your pet's story to our group, you grant us permission to use your story and image(s) on our website and in other HSU publications, videos, and testimonials.


 

Simba's Story

I found this guy at Petsmart and fell in love with him right away! He was all smiles and quite the show off. When I started reading his information sheet I noticed the Humane Society gave him the name Kelly. I knew right then it must have been destiny as that is my name. LOL!! He fit perfect into our family. Lots of energy, and a cuddle bug. Thank you for bringing him to Pet smart that day!! We love our new fur baby ❤
 
We found out he's ticklish!

Star's Story

I got my sweet Star December 2014. I had another bunny named Snuggles and he needed a companion. So when I went to the Humane Society I was specifically looking for a friend for him. I looked at all the bunnies and all of them were nippy or already had a companion. All except star. She came right up to me when I opened her cage and started licking me. I knew she was the one! That night I got a tote and she slept in my rooms with me. She actually ended up on my bed with me because I was so happy to have her!

Ryuk's Story

Ryuk is adapting very well to his new home. He loves to watch me play video games and often times he will try to take the controller away from me by laying on it. 
The Vet said he can tell the kitty is well loved. His favorite food is Blue Buffalo Kitten Food mixed with whitefish and sardines.

Pooka's Story

We adopted this amazing pit from the humane society a couple months ago and she is just the best. I had some slight concerns due to her size and breed and we have small children, kittens, and a small dog. But she is nothing but gentle. The kids run with her, pull her, push her, and kiss her. She doesn't care- it's all the same to her. She is so gentle with the newborn kittens we had and is the sweet protector we wanted her to be.

Shikee's Story

I adopted Shikee from the Humane Society of Utah on March 1st, 2007. She was about four years old at the time. The most striking thing about her was not the fact that she was missing an eye, or that she was a unusual breed... it was her very sweet and unique "meowrf". Shikee is indeed a very vocal cat, and communicates very well! She has been nothing but a sweetheart, and even has earned the nickname of "Sweet Sheeks"...
