FOAU in Park City has allowed me to find a wnderful addtion to my family. Wrigley (chihuuahua, 6 year old) and I found each in the Summer of 2010 while I was visiting Furburbia and the factory outlet in Park Ciity Utah. He had just been brought back from another adoptive family who adopted him in April. They desided that he was not a good match. I think it is wonderful that the FOAU allows the dogs to be brought back if the match doesn't work and reconditioned the animal and up back up for adoption.
Wrigley is not our first, In early years of FOAU wer adopted a black adult cat named Lucky he has sinced past but brought great friendship to my children. Please give FOAU the $5000.00, I know they will use it to bring friendships together.

Tell your story here and help others understand this charity
Summit County Friends of Animals has successfully promoted
responsibe care and adoption for thousands of animals - cats, dogs, horses, bunnies
There presence in our community helped to inspire our pilot
project....STETSON,Street Dog of Park City - a half hour TV series promoting animal adoption and responsibility against the backdrop of a wonderfully Dog-Friendly town, Park City Utah.

Without Summit County Friends of Animals, we could not have had the kind of community support that a pilot like this takes.
They are the best!

My husband and I went to a home to "look at" a black cocker spaniel. I instantly fell in love with him and we adopted him. He was 3.5 years old and we renamed him Jet Back because his original name didn't fit. He was my devoted companion until throat cancer took his life in Sept. 2008. Tears come to my eyes as I remember him. He seemed to sense that they/we saved his life. As soon as the new FOAU building donation center was started we purchased a name brick for him. I never knew his true story but I was lead to believe he was neglected rather than abused. He had papers and we tried to find the breeder but were unable to do it. FOAU gave me the best dog of my life. The people at FOAU work tirelessly to save animals. I was also indirectly involved with the rescue of a puppy mill in a local city where 6-8 Papillon puppies were taken from squalid conditions. I have volunteered on several occasions and felt very satisfied in doing so. I plan to do so again because I personally know Claudia and the force, leadership and strength she can bring to an organization is unlimited.

Friends of Animals is an organization that helps you see the humanity that still exists in our chaotic world. I have been a volunteer in years past, as well as a client more recently. I have seen the passion that the people of the FOA have for animals as they sacrifice many hours of hard work to care and rehabilitate the Dogs, Cats, Horses, etc. that are fortunate enough to become a part of the FOA family. I have also seen the tears and frustration that come with such an awesome struggle to save lives. Cathy Clark of the Utah chapter of FOA is a personal hero of mine. I volunteered many hours with Cathy at their adoption center Furburbia. I learned about dedication and perseverance from Cathy. On many occasions, when Cathy was helping a particularly sick or emaciated animal, tears would flow from her eyes, letting you know just how much she cares about what she is doing. You can see this dedication throughout the FOA organization. And this is why I am writing this review to say Thank You to the Friends of Animals! Thank you for your love and your daily struggle to help the animals! The FOA is an ultimate example of courage and strength!! -

FOA Utah is a wonderful organization! My husband and I found a wonderful addition to our family at the Furburbia location in Park City, UT. She was "saved" from a local shelter and we couldn't be happier.

FOAU is a well run facility, clean and welcoming. Everyone on staff has always
been very helpful. The adoption process was thorough, but simple.

It's easy see the problems in this world. It's difficult, on the other hand, to fix them. Friends of Animals Utah is a strong, effective organization that has been working hard in this community for more than a decade to solve problems about which my husband and I care deeply. We are grateful that such an organization exists so we don't have to labor alone. Working with FOAU amplifies our efforts. FOAU makes a difference.

When I started working with FOAU 3 years ago they were just expanding beyond Summit County, UT into Wasatch County UT. The Wasatch County Animal shelter was rarely open. Adoptions were rarely performed - euthanasia was a much more likely outcome for animals that found their way to the shelter. In less that 3 years, FOAU completely turned that around. Today FOAU volunteers work 40+ hours at the shelter, the doors are always open and homeless pets find new homes and are never euthanized or neglected.

We have fostered puppies and dogs for the last two years for Friends of Animals Utah. FOAU does an impressive job helping animals find loving homes. They also do a fantastic public service for our community and State. We adopted our two cats form FOAU who are not so happy when we bring a puppy home for the night but they are getting used to the idea. While we have the puppy or dog we enjoy teaching him things, finding out what he knows and taking him for walks. It is so fun to have a dog. This is a great program for us as we have jobs that don't allow us to have a dog full time. We also fall in love a little bit every time we have a foster.

It makes my heart happy when I hear that one of my fostered puppies has found a great home. I know that the few things I taught him will always be with him in his new home.

I'd like to see FOAU get bigger and better funded so they could help more stray and unwanted animals. The FOA Ranch is a great start. Hopefully they will someday have the funding to help horses as well as other domestic animals in need along with the dogs and cats.

FOA is amazing, I have volunteered ther several times in the last few years, and everytime I was there and I saw the dogs, I found that I wanted to help these animals too. I believe that their's is a good cause and I would like them to get the reward due to all their hard work and excellence.
