The Humane Society of Utah is a private 501(c)3 nonprofit animal welfare organization. We rely solely upon funding from individuals, foundations, and businesses. We receive no local, state, or federal funding support.
Founded in 1960, the Humane Society of Utah is the largest open-admission animal welfare organization in the state. We welcome any companion animal that can be legally admitted and work to find each animal in our care a loving home.
The Humane Society of Utah does not euthanize any healthy or treatable animal in our care and exceeds nationally accepted no-kill standards. Our approach at all times is to find the best, most humane outcome for the animals in our care and create an environment of respect, responsibility, and compassion through our programs, advocacy, and education.
