Shelter Facilities

UAAC buildingUAAC is vastly different from most traditional animal shelters. We pride ourselves on providing the most comfortable and homelike environment possible for the animals in our care.  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.

We provide lots of toys, playtime and human interaction, with the added benefit of walks for the dogs along the Jordan River Parkway Trail.  We are also unique in that we offer a lifetime guarantee for our adopted animals. If their person ever decides they can no longer care for the pet we placed with them, we will accept it back into our program, giving it another chance with a new family. The most important distinction is that we do not ever euthanize any healthy, adoptable pets.
