Common Dog Adoption Questions
Paws For Life pulls dogs from high kill shelters from the state of Utah and beyond. Some have been abandoned, and many have been owner surrendered for a number of different reasons. We will provide all the background we have for each dog in our care.

All our dogs are screened by the rescue staff upon arriving at Paws For Life. We treat conditions as needed – up to and including veteranary care, and ensure that all dogs are fully vaccinated (to age-appropriate standards), spayed/neutered and microchipped. We will also make you aware of any medical issues we have identified.

For a well socialized dog, the adjustment process can take, on average, two weeks to two months. For under-socialized dog it can take up to a year or longer to become accustomed to the new environments, people and routine.

Yes – but please understand that there may be a waiting list due and a rehoming fee will be charged if it’s been longer than one year since adoption.  This fee allows us to secure a foster and/or boarding slot and pay for supplies and any needed vaccines. We ask that you reach out to us if you cannot keep him/her and we’ll help you work to find the best solution.

Common Cat Adoption Questions

The most important thing to consider in a cat is its personality. Does it get along with other cats? With dogs? Is it alright being alone during the day or does it always need company? Is it a lap cat, or more of an independent soul? Decide on what personality traits matter most to you, and keep an open mind about everything else. 

When bringing in a new adult cat, our experience has shown that a male/female combination is the best. But it totally depends on the cats in question. Just like each person is unique, each cat is unique.

Outdoor cats live an average of six years, while indoor cats live an average of almost 20. 

  • Vocal clues. Cats can be very vocal, especially when they’re happy. 
  • A healthy appearance. If cats feel good, they will keep themselves well groomed. 
  • A relaxed posture.
  • Playful behaviour. 
  • A good appetite.
