It’s that special time of year where we are helping our furry friends in need!
Academy West will be running a Pet Supply Drive from now until December 22nd!
There is a box in the front lobby for all donations!
Unfortunately we will not be running an adoption this year due to the Shelter funding but we are hoping to get a ton of supplies!

*Share with your friends! Even if you do not currently go to Academy West the animals need our help!

Thank you for your support through the years and let’s make this year the best!

The Humane Society of Utah (HSU) is a non-profit organization that relies on donations to help homeless and helpless animals. In addition to a constant need for monetary donations, the HSU can always benefit from donations of supplies for all of our programs and departments. Please drop any donations off at the HSU, anytime of the week during our regular business hours.
