Have fun and help animals in Salt Lake City
There are so many ways you can make a difference and get involved in local events here in Salt Lake City — including stopping by an adoption event and watching happy pets go home with new families, attending a “sip and learn” to find out how to best help save lives, or simply getting your pets microchipped should they become lost.
You have the power to create a bright future for homeless dogs and cats and help keep shelters from becoming overcrowded. Join us and experience the joy of seeing pets about to be adopted!
Saving Salt Lake City's homeless pets
Every event you attend is a chance to make a lifesaving difference for dogs and cats and get us closer to ending the killing of pets in shelters. Bonus? You’ll meet caring, passionate, like-minded people who care about animals, too!
