Herding Haven

Herding Haven is a partner of Best Friends, working together to save the lives of dogs and cats in communities like yours across the country

The Best Friends Network is made up of thousands of public and private shelters, rescue groups, spay/neuter organizations, and other animal welfare groups — all working to save the lives of dogs and cats in communities like yours across the country.

No-Kill Utah (NKUT) is an initiative led by Best Friends that brings together passionate individuals, city shelters and a group of animal welfare organizations to end the  killing of dogs and cats in shelters throughout the state of Utah. 

From Herding Haven

Herding Haven takes in primarily herding dogs with physical and behavioral disabilities (generally deemed rescue only) from local shelters and provides physical and behavioral rehabilitation for the dogs for as long as they need until they are adoptable at which time we find them loving, forever homes.

Adopt a pet

When you adopt a homeless dog or cat you’re saving the life of a loving and loyal animal. You’re also making space for other pets to find families of their own.
