No More Homeless Pets in Utah Adoption Program

The program started in September 2002 when No More Homeless Pets in Utah partnered with
the West Valley City shelter with the mutual goal of saving lives. Before the partnership, 70 percent of the animals entering the shelter were euthanized, today that number has dwindled to under 35 percent. The program exemplified successful public/private partnerships between local government and non profits that are both committed to saving lives.

In January 2008, NMHPU expanded its adoption program and now rescues animals off the euthanasia lists of many area shelters.

To meet some of the animals in our program and to find out about upcoming adoption events, check out our Petfinder page here. www.nomorehomelesspets.petfinder.com

Our dogs are now are housed at the Gateway to Canine Partnerships, a non-profit organization is a non-profit service dog training agency serving people with disabilities.

Our cats are in foster homes and can be adopted at our weekend adoption events.

Come Meet our Pets:

No More Homeless Pets in Utah holds adoptions every weekend. We alternate our v enues so check out our calendar online for adoption locations. We also show dogs by appointment during the week.

Our Adoption Process:

No More Homeless Pets in Utah tries to make appropriate pet/parent matches that suit both the animal and new pet parents. We do this by having the potential adopter fill out an application, so that we may try to make the best match possible. If it seems to be a great fit for the animal and pet parent, we have them fill out an adoption contract and make an adoption donation.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
