Utah Animal Adoption Center (UAAC) is a non-euthanizing animal adoption center, rescuing an average of 1,000 dogs and cats each year and placing them in loving homes. UAAC has been dedicated to reducing the tragedies of pet overpopulation, the euthanasia of healthy adoptable pets, and animal suffering since 1983.
UAAC is funded entirely by individual donations and some private foundation grants. Money collected from fundraising events saves lives by supporting animal rescue and providing medical attention for pets in need.
Our adoption center is located on a beautiful 3.5. acre sanctuary located 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 feline friends live communally in a large room where they can interact and relax on abundant cat tress and towers. During the warm months they venture out into an amazing outdoor cat enclosure to lounge in the sun and fresh air.
The NKUT Adoption Weekend is a cooperative effort in which shelters and rescue groups come together in a free, fun, festival-like atmosphere to find homes for hundreds of animals during a weekend. The participating shelters and rescue groups are members of Best Friends–Utah’s NKUT Coalition. Generally held twice a year at the Utah State Fairpark, NKUT Adoption Weekend is the continuation of a 15-year run of large adoption events in Salt Lake City, called Pet Super Adoptions, which began in 2000.
Potential adopters should come prepared with a valid form of identification and payment. If you’re a renter, it’s a good idea to have a letter from your landlord stating that you are allowed to have a pet.
