My name is Clyde and I’m just about the most loving young-at-heart 8-year old yellow Lab you’ll ever meet! My foster parents are already head-over- heels in love with me! My two favorite things in the world are my humans and fetching tennis balls thrown by my humans. I will fetch as long as you are willing to throw! So you will need to be the responsible one to tell me when it’s time to stop! But playing fetch is a perfect outlet for my energy level and, since I will need to be exercised in some fashion every single day, fetch is a win-win! I am a work-in progress with my leash manners. I tend to pull because I love, love, love all of the wonderful new smells on my walk and just get excited. But I am improving day-by-day and with practice, I know I will become a great walking partner! I am also learning my basic commands and so far I know Sit, Down, and Clyde Come. I’m still working on Stay, Leave It, and Off. I get along great with dogs of all ages and sizes. I will make a great hiking partner because I’m not one to run off once I realize that you are my person. I am a perfect gentleman in the house and have NO separation anxiety whatsoever! I can be trusted so much that my foster parents have chosen not to crate me when they leave! So, while I am not presently “crate-trained”, I am OK with being in the crate. I am well-mannered in the house as I do get on any furniture unless invited. I’m happy to sleep in my dog bed at night in your bedroom (or in your bed if invited). I’m not a really big boy, weighing in at just 60 pounds. Admittedly, I’m a little skinny and my foster mom thinks I could stand to gain about 5 to 8 pounds to be at my optimal weight. But that is an easy fix. To be honest, I’m not the best in the car because I get scared. I whine a bit, but I think it’s because I haven’t had a lot of experience going on trips. So that is an area in which I will need work and most certainly improve with time. But with treats and more and more trips, I will see that going bye-bye is everything good! My perfect home will have a family that allows me to be a participating member. A fenced yard and a basket full of tennis balls is a must! I would love siblings (whether they are dogs, human kids, or both)! I do get excited at times, so maybe having little kids around me might not be the best because I might knock them over by accident. I’ve not been around cats, but I’m sure with proper introduction, we could make it work. I like sticking close to my humans. I am smart, so if you have a dog door, I’ll learn that concept very quickly. I will need continued training in leash work , car rides, and basic commands, but other than that, I am good to go! I promise if you love me, I will love you back unconditionally 100 times over!<b><center><br><br> </font></h1></b></orange><br>If you are interested in adopting a CAWS pet, please fill out the <A HREF='' target='new'>Online Application!</a>

About Community Animal Welfare Society

About Our Rescue Group...

Founded in 1992 the Community Animal Welfare Society ( CAWS) is one of the oldest no-kill animal rescues in Utah. Over the last 20 years CAWS, our fosters and supporters have saved thousands of lives including over 600 last this year. As the largest foster home network in the state of Utah we focus on high risk pets in need of additional care and rehabilitation

Come Meet Our Pets...

CAWS does not have a conventional shelter facility - all CAWS animals waiting for adoption are in foster homes. The number of animals we can help find new homes for is closely linked to how many CAWS foster homes are available. For additional information regarding how you, too, can become a foster, please see our fostering page located on our web site!

CAWS volunteers bring cats and dogs to the PetSmart near 2100 South and 300 West in South Salt Lake on the third and fourth weekends of each month

We are also at the Sugarhouse PETCO (1165 Wilmington Ave) the first Saturday of each month.

Our Adoption Process...

Since we make a lifetime commitment to any animal that comes into our program, we only adopt out animals to people in our area..

If you are interested in adopting a CAWS cat or dog, please fill out the online application at, email or call 328-4731. For the most timely response applying online is recommended.

We respond as quickly as possible but as we are a volunteer based organization and do not have full time staff, we respond as quickly as possible.
