Paws for Life Utah is a non-profit, volunteer-run organization dedicated to helping homeless, “at risk” animals from municipal shelters find forever homes. We are a no-kill advocates who assisted the Heber Valley Animal in achieving that goal in 2013. Since then, we have expanded our reach throughout the state of Utah and the far west region, assisting rural shelters.
We work to raise community awareness, provide critical medical care, spay/neuter, immunization, microchipping and education, promote and publicize animals available for adoption, and host numerous remote adoption events throughout the year. We rescue both easily adoptable and those more challenging to place such as seniors and special needs.
We believe that the best way to attack the pet overpopulation problem is to focus on the root of the problem – preventing more dogs and cats from being born. Every pet that enters Paws for Life Utah’s program is spayed or neutered before being placed in his/her adoptive home. We strive to educate the public on the importance of spaying and neutering. We also provide support through a TNR (trap, neuter, release) program in an effort to reduce the number of feral cats and colonies in our communities.
