It has been my privilege to volunteer for this organization for 10+ years. It has grown from an all volunteer animal adoption group to a full-fledged animal rescue organization with a significant presence in Northern Utah and the surrounding region. Along with animal adoption, the organization now offers education, spay and neuter and human-animal welfare programs as well as lobbying for animal welfare issues. Please visit the website at www.foautah.org to learn more about Friends of Animals Utah.

My precious lab Iggy came from FOAU in 2002 - a foster failure situation for sure. He is my constant companion and one of the main reasons I chose to get more involved in the organization.

Diversify volunteer talent and recruit for help in non-animal areas.

What a phenomenal facility to help house animals and find them new homes!!! I volunteered with a program called Canines With A Cause. I helped train shelter dogs to be used as psychological therapy dogs. We worked with a trainer on basic obedience and canine good citizen certification. All of the dogs in the program were adopted. This is a win win for the dogs as well as the people that adopted the dogs.

I was looking for a dog - a family pet. The friends of the animals spent time on the phone with me finding out information that would help them find the perfect pet for my family. They then found the perfect 4 month old "mutt" that became Charley, the world's greatest dog. We had Charley for 12 1/2 years and he provided much joy and love for our family. I cannot thank the people of Friends of Animals enough.

We had the pleasure to adopt a dog from Furburbia (FOA of Utah) in Park City. It was an outstanding experience. They made it so easy. The process was thorough, but fast, we were in and out of there in less than half an hour ( we kenw what animal we wanted by visiting their website).
their
facility is outstanding. It is very clean, beautiful and pet friendly and the animals are very well taken care of. Their website is very helpful. You can search for a dog and then just go there and adopt it! What luxury. We were very impressed by their services.

I Love Friends of Animals Utah. It is so great that they have rescued and saved so many animals. It is a very well run non kill shelter which is clean and organized. When I visit and my son has volunteered we see how well these animals are cared for while waiting for their permanent home. They have been friendly and are current on sending e mails out to keep people updated in our community. Friends of Animals also keep us posted on their news by weekly articles and adoption in our local Park Record Paper. If you have ever visited friends of animals website they are always updated and current at what is going on at their facility. Most importantly for our family we are thankful for Friends of Animals because we adopted THE BEST DOG for US!!!!! THANK YOU friends of animals.

Friends of Animals Utah is a group that has brought much joy to numerous families and animals in my local community of Park City. I have numerous friends that have had the wonderful opportunity to rescue animals from Friends of Animals Utah and these special pets have brought about life-changing expereicnes for these freinds of mine. More over, the animals that have had a second or third chance at life due to Freinds of Animals Utah rescue services, are now prancing about the trails of Park City bringing joy to the entire community. We are ALL so thankful for their services.

I have adopted two wonderful dogs from Summit County Friends of Animals. In both cases, every person I interacted with was very helpful. Their primary concern was always in making sure that the dog found a good forever home. We were given advice, allowed a trial adoption period, and lent equipment, such as kennels, to help ensure that our home was a good match for the dog.

When we adopted our second dog, we had to consider that we already had a dog at home who had strong fears of other dogs. The FOA staff let our fearful dog meet some other dogs and finally suggested a particular dog who turned out to be a perfect match.

This is a well-organized group of people who are dedicated to serving the homeless pet population. I have followed the group since my first adoption from them 14 years ago, and during that time FOA has continually expanded in order to serve more and more animals. Their latest addition is a new rescue and rehabilitation center.

Friends of Animals Utah has helped save the lives of over 10,000 adoptable dogs and cats since it's inception in 1990. Through its rescue, treatment, rehabilitation and adoption programs, FOAU found homes for over 1000 pets in 2010 through its Furburbia adoption center! The organization recently opened its Rescue & Rehab Ranch in Peoa, Utah, and is now poised to have far greater impact on local communities through new and expanded education and outreach programs, as well as increased spay and neuter services for pet owners in need. FOAU is committed to significantly reducing the population of homeless, unwanted companion animals throughout northern Utah.
