If people are going to own dogs and make them their children than they should also go through prenatal-canine classes, so that they can be good dog parents.


What great news! Way to go, Humane Society!!!

Adopt, Foster,,Spay & nueter

Thank you
for giving them a second chance

Spay and neuter

Wow! Great job! Now if people would spay and neuter their cats (and dogs) there wouldn't be such a problem.


What an amazing difference this Humane Society has made! Hope all shelters can have the same success in finding homes for dogs and cats!

Good for the dogs

When will we see the same headline with respect to unwanted human pregnancies?


Whoo hoo!


Thank you HSU for doing such a great job. My two present dogs were adopted from HSU and they are the best dogs. The oldest was a dog that had been adopted twice and returned before I took him. He is the best dog especially with little kids. The latest I adopted about three months ago. He was a dog transfered in from Idaho. At the time he was skinny, very sick, and at lackluster. After vet visits, IVs, several antibiotics and other meds he started to get some energy, brightened up, filled out and now is a big bundle of energy. He loves to play and is very loving. He is learning quickly and doing very well.

What a blessing both dogs are. I would not have them if it were not for the HSU who found them and made them available. Thanks again.


I love my animals. Believe me, I'd have to in order to own and care for the MANY that I have on our little hobby farm. But, this story brings out feelings of sadness in me. I just wish that abortion - the murder of human life - would be treated as passionately as the care of dogs, cats and other animals are.

Wonderful news

This is such wonderful news. All 3 of our dogs are rescue dogs. It just tears me apart to think about the thousands of healthy animals nationwide who are euthanized because they cannot find a home.

I am so grateful for the work the Humane Society has done this year to achieve the goal of no euthanasia of healthy dogs, and for the wonderful groups like No More Homeless Pets in Utah, Summit County Friends of Animals, and Best Friends Society.

To have no euthanized dogs is quite an accomplishment, given the difficulty in placing animals with the current economic conditions. Let's hope this trend can continue and follow with the other animals at the shelter, as well.

That is wonderful news. Thanks HSU. I love animals of any kind. Healthy animals should never be killed.


Great work HSU! Everyone, please spay and neuter your pets.

Great Work

Congratulations on this great achievement Humane Society! I'm happy to say my wife and I adopted one of your great dogs in this past year and she has brought so much fun and joy into our lives! Once we can get into a home with a nice big yard we'll be adding a couple more!

Don't forget

Salt Lake County Animal Services, adoption rates have gone through the roof for canines and felines. Euthanizing healthy domestic pets is unthinkable.

Good News

NOWWW, if we can only train the animal owners into being good PETS for their doggies and kitties.


My cat was reading over my shoulder and purring approvingly until he got to the part about neutering. At that point he threw a minor hissy fit.

Thankyou! For Saving ones Animal


Going to the dogs

A dog is a subhuman, stupid, insignificant animal. In my opinion, dogs in general are nice, but I wouldn't even notice if I woke up tomorrow and there were no more of them.

It's interesting that liberals are happy when a puppy gets adopted and a baby human gets aborted.

I think every person who truly believes in the right to legalize abortion-on-demand should do the only honorable thing to profess his/her sincerity- take his/her own life to avoid hypocrisy.

GoodNews&Thank you UTAH
