Friends of Animals Utah
February 12, 2012

In our town of Park City we have an extraordinary number of people that have adopted dogs from Friends of the Animals Utah. Not only have I adopted a dog, I have also fostered them. The Friends of the Animals Utah have established a great system of fostering animals of all ages and they have a great adoption success rate as a result. Adoption has become a given in our town thanks to FOA Utah's proactive approach to reaching out to the community to educate them in the benefits of adopting, volunteering and contributing to the organization.

I have been a resident of Park City for 28 years. When I first came to town there were stray cats and dogs all over town...With an itinerant winter population that came to work at the resorts and restaurants, came many "cute puppies and kittens" that were purchased or acquired during their stay for the winter, but once the spring came and the jobs ended, those folks returned to their countries but couldn't or didn't take their pets with them.
Since Friends of the Animals has been in town, many many formerly homeless pets have found homes...it is a rare occasion to see a stray cat or dog wandering through town.
I have had first hand experience with them since up until 6 years ago, I regularly fostered dogs at my home. I had 9 foster dogs and 1 litter of 3 puppies before I actually became the owner of a fostered dog that couldn't me adopted. Due to the nature of that dog, I couldn't foster any more.
What I find amazing is HOW MANY people in this town have dogs they have acquired from FOAU. Almost everyone you speak to walking a dog has a story to tell about how they found their pet through FOAU.
What's more...they take in and rehabilitate where necessary, and find homes for all sorts of other pets from turtles to horses.
The FOAU provides a huge service to our community in Summit County.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Fostering a number of dogs, and acquiring one through FOAU.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Provide them with more money for further outreach in our community and in the surrounding county.

MY ROLE:
General Member of the Public & Fostered dogs over 4 years.
