Welcome to the Utah Animal Adoption Center

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.

Updates on Kelly

Kelly Salt Flats Dog Update 3 copy

January 18, 2018 | Update on Kelly!

Kelly is doing better every day. I know it's the meds working, but I still think it's all the well wishes and happy thoughts that she is receiving from the universe! She has friends from around the world. She is happy today, wanted to jump and get some loves. So far, we can only do that with gloves and gowns on, due to her mange being contagious. We can't wait to be able to pet her without the gloves.

She is still eating well; her diarrhea has cleared up. Her eyes are looking good. She is getting a bit restless. She may be good with other dogs, when she hears the littles barking, she runs to the door and listens to them.

Her skin is still fragile, but she is looking better. Her crusties are starting to drop off her face. That crusty look is from the mites but also the exposure to the sun, wind, and cold. She will still bleed if she scratches herself, but her itchiness is getting better, so she isn't scratching as much. She has a bit of hair growing on her back, just an undercoat for now. It's very fine and sparse. It's white with some black too.
