Adopt or Volunteer at Salt Lake Shelters & Rescues

If you’re looking to add a new furry or feathered friend to your family, why not adopt? There are lots of wonderful animals in and around Salt Lake City looking for forever homes in shelters and at rescue organizations. Some of our favorite Merry Pets pack mates were adopted by their families! And if you don’t want to adopt but are looking to give some of your time to help the animal community, all of these organizations need volunteers! Check out this list of shelters and rescue programs that may be the ideal place to find your next animal companion or volunteer your time.

Wonderful cats and dogs are up for adoption along the Salt Lake Valley.
