Review for Nuzzles and Co, Park City, UT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been so impressed with The Friends of Animals Utah organization and the extraordinary progress they have made in Summit and Wasatch counties. I started volunteering with them about a year ago, and in that short time they have worked continually to forge an agreement with the city of Heber that resulted in changing their animal shelter to a 'no-kill' shelter. We have adopted and saved hundreds of dogs and cats and increased public awareness of pet responsibility through neuter and spay programs and the trap and release program of feral cats. We are attracting more and more volunteers who are inspired to work for a common goal: that no animal should have to put down simply for existing.

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

Seeing that more and more animals have a shorter stay at the animal shelter, are more comfortable when they are there and are adopted quickly.

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

work harder to increase funds and try to spread to surrounding counties.

Role:  Volunteer & I worked at the shelter taking care of both dogs and cats and as a graphic artist, did flyers showing animals up for adoption.
