The Utah Humane Society is gearing up this year to assist in the adoption of 7,500 animals, performing more than 11,000 spay or neutering and participating in numerous education and outreach programs. In order to avoid euthanizing animals, the society focuses on education and outreach. But in the end, it’s the general public looking for animal companions who fuel the society. QSaltLake proudly sponsors the following dogs, and anyone interested should call 801-261-2919 to arrange a visit. For more information about pet adoption or how to volunteer, go to UtahHumane.org.
Freckles answers to many names; Pickles, Wurstie, Freckles, just call her, and she’s there. This 8-year-old Dachshund was surrendered to the Humane Society of Utah because her owner became ill, had to be hospitalized and could no longer take care of Freckles. She’s extremely friendly and affectionate. She loves everyone she meets, dogs and people. However, Freckles does like to chase cats – but just for fun. She also thoroughly enjoys long runs and hikes, she can go for miles! Freckles is house trained, microchipped and is in good health. Even though she lost a few teeth, Freckles has a good appetite and eats well, she just needs to get the proper amount of food to lose a few pounds. She is currently being fostered by Dr. Lena Detar, one of the Humane Society of Utahʼs veterinarians, but she needs and wants a family to take care of her and give her all the attention she deserves!
Candy is a 2-year-old Chihuahua who looks like she may have a little Min Pin (miniature Pinscher) mixed in. With those big ears and long legs Candy is as cute as they come. She loves to play with other dogs and her two-legged friends as well. Candy can be a little shy at first but she gets over being bashful quickly and becomes a little clown.
