Write a Shelter Pet's Letter to Santa
Go online and look at our pets. Choose an animal that speaks to you.
Grab a pen and paper, and write a letter to Santa on their behalf. (You pick what they may want: treats, a home, a warm blanket)
Bring the letter to the shelter and leave it in our Santa Mailbox inside the lobby.
We invite children to write letters on the pets behalf and leave the letter in our "mailbox" at the front counter. The shelter is open from 10 AM - 6 PM, Monday - Saturday, and is located at 511 W 3900 S in Salt Lake City. We will be accepting letters until 3 PM Christmas Eve.
Some letters may be shared on our social media pages to help raise awareness about our awesome pets available for adoption.
If you need ideas for donations please visit our donations page or our Amazon wishlists.

Volunteer of the Month: Tracy Thomas
Tracy Thomas is our November Volunteer of the Month! Tracy began
volunteering with SLCO Animal Services in November of 2012. Tracy has
volunteered within the shelter with both the dogs and the cats, as well as
helped at events.
offered her services as a real estate agent to those in the community seeking
pet friendly housing who are struggling to find rentals who will allow their
volunteers for UTAH FACES for the groom transport. The groom transport happens
twice a week and volunteers pick up an animal from the shelter and take it to a
local groomer offering their services for a bath and hair cut. This helps the
animal to not only feel better and get a much-needed bath but it boosts their
chance at adoption.
like Tracy are essential to the program. Tracy has involved herself with in the
animal community and is always willing to lend a helping hand.
Tracy is a
wonderful example of what volunteering is all about.

Adopt a Senior Dog This November
This November, adopt a senior dog from Salt Lake County Animal Services. Adoption fees, for all dogs over the age of 5, will be half off from November 1st - 30th.
Have we mentioned some of the great reasons to adopt an older dog?
1. You CAN teach an older dog new tricks!
2. Older pets are usually less destructive than a puppy.
3. They appreciate the art of relaxation.
4. Adopted senior pets are grateful for your kindness, attention, and love.
5. You can adopt a purebred if that's what you're looking for. There are numerous breed specific rescues throughout Utah. Here at Animal Services, we see hundreds of purebred dogs on the adoption floor every year.
Older dogs tend to end up in the shelter for numerous reasons that have nothing to do with their behavior such as: allergies, death of a guardian, a new baby, loss of a job, a move, or the novelty of owning a dog wears off.
Come meet our seniors Monday-Saturday, 10 AM - 6 PM at 511 W. 3900 S., Salt Lake City.
