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

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

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

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.

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

Recruit more volunteers and raise more money to address significant animal welfare issues beyond the local animal shelters.
