Animal Services for Riverton Residents Shifts from Salt Lake County to Riverton City

Salt Lake City, UT – Beginning February 1, 2018, citizens with questions or concerns regarding lost or stray pets, licensing, complaints, etc. will contact Riverton City at (801) 208-3108 for assistance.

All animals from Riverton currently in Salt Lake County Animal Services care will be turned over to Riverton City on February 1. To ease the burden of the transition Salt Lake County Animal Services is seeking to send these stray and abandoned pets, that came from Riverton, to local animal rescues where they can find new families. This should hopefully ease the burden on Riverton City and ensure a positive outcome for these animals.

Salt Lake County Animal Services will continue to serve the residents and pets as a no-kill shelter facility for Bluffdale, Copperton, Emigration Canyon, Herriman, Holladay, Kearns, Magna, Midvale, Millcreek, Salt Lake City and White City.

Below is information provided by Riverton City for its citizens:
