Utah Animal Adoption Center (UAAC) formerly Wasatch Humane is a non-euthanizing animal adoption center, rescuing an average of 1,000 dogs, cats and horses each year and placing them in loving homes. UAAC has been dedicated to reducing the tragedies of pet overpopulation, the euthanasia of healthy adoptable pets and animal suffering since 1983.

UAAC is vastly different from most traditional animal shelters. We pride ourselves on providing the most comfortable and homelike environment possible for the animals in our care. Our adoption center is located on a beautiful 3.5. acre sanctuary located next to the Jordan River Parkway Trail. Our dogs enjoy indoor/outdoor kennels and three large fenced areas where they can safely socialize and play. Our feline friends live communally in a large room where they can interact and relax on abundant cat tress and towers. During the warm months they venture out into an amazing outdoor cat enclosure to lounge in the sun and fresh air.

We are also unique in that we offer a lifetime guarantee for our adopted animals. If their person ever decides they can no longer care for the pet we placed with them, we will accept it back into our program, giving it another chance with a new family. The most important distinction is that we do not ever euthanize any healthy, adoptable pets.

The majority of our cats and dogs come from local and regional shelters that sadly have to euthanize thousands of animals annually. We partner with these shelters, rescuing pets form their euthanasia lists. A few of our animals come directly from owners, when hardships make it impossible for them to care for their pet.

UAAC also has a horse rescue and adoption program. For years we have taken in horses from a variety of unfortunate situations. Some are rescued from cruelty and neglect, or others are turned over to us due to economic hardships. These majestic animals are available for adoption at our beautiful new Equine Center located on ten acres of renovated property.

Education Program: Our Lesson In Kindness program offers classroom presentations on kind and responsible treatment of animals. We give tours of our facility and offer a variety of service learning projects to students of all ages.
