Welcome to the Utah Animal Adoption Center

Hours: Adoption, Vaccinations, and Visiting

Tuesday - Saturday 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM


The Utah Animal Adoption Center (UAAC) is a non-euthanizing animal shelter that rescues and finds homes for an average of 1,000 dogs and cats each year. UAAC has been dedicated to reducing the tragedies of pet overpopulation, the euthanasia of healthy adoptable pets, and ending animal suffering since 1983.  

Our facility is located on a beautiful 3.5. acre sanctuary next to the Jordan River Parkway Trail. Our dogs enjoy indoor/outdoor kennels and three large fenced areas where they can safely socialize and play. Our cats live communally in a large room where they can interact and relax on abundant cat trees and towers. Our cats also have access to an outdoor enclosure with climbing trellises and an elevated walkway. 

UAAC is funded largely by individual donations, corporate support, and private foundation grants. The money raised by UAAC helps to save lives by supporting animal rescue and providing medical attention for pets in need.
