Holiday Pet Adoption and Supplies Drive!

Once again Academy West is very excited to bring in The Humane Society of Utah for another holiday supply drive and pet adoption! The pet adoption event will be held on Dec 16th onsite at Academy West from 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm. Last year we found homes for three amazing dogs and had donated items totaling over $1000! Lets see if can top that this year! Thank you for your support in helping these furry balls of Love!
