How We Help

Paws for Life Utah is a non-profit, volunteer-run organization dedicated to helping homeless dogs, cats and other “at risk” animals from municipal shelters find forever homes.
Rescue At-Risk Shelter Pets
Every year Paws for Life Utah rescues over 1500 shelter pets.  Our rescue organization finds loving homes for every adoptable pet that enters our program.  
  • Provide foster care
  • Exercise and train
  • Provide transport from high-risk facilities
Provide Veterinary Care

We spay and neuter, immunize microchip and provide medical care for every pet that enters our program.  We work in partnership with several veterinary clinics to provide these services for our rescued pets.

  • Low Cost Spay & Neuter
  • Immunize
  • Microchip
  • Provide medical care for rescued pets when needed
Community Education And Training
We engage in community partnerships with local law enforcement, municipal shelters and with educational institutions in bringing awareness to the needs for pets in shelters. From obedience training for adopted dogs to assisting the public in Trap Neuter release for feral cats, we work together to find solutions to reduce the number of homeless pets in our community.
  • Community outreach programs
  • Raise public awareness of the needs of shelter pets
