FOAU finds 52 pets loving homes at the NKUT Super Adoption Event
On the first weekend of May, Friends of Animals Utah participated in the NKUT Super Adoption Event, at Utah Fairpark. The event was a roaring success and saw over 500 pets placed in loving forever homes, in just two days!
Friends of Animals Utah, was thrilled to participate in the event and are pleased to announce that we found homes for 52 FOAU pets (31 dogs and 21 cats). This was the most pets we have ever placed at the event - It was a wonderful day!
Thank you to our incredible and dedicated staff, who showed up early and stayed late, and who never sat down during the entire two days. Thank you to our volunteers who came out and walked and watered dogs and played with cats.
The photo above is of our bonded-pair of boxers, Missy and Sadie. Their new mom adopted them on Saturday and they went straight home to meet their new brother, also a boxer! Missy and Sadie claimed the leather couch right away, and are enjoying being in a pack of three boxers.
FOAU pets win in Squatters/Wasatch Guilt Free Dessert Competition
All throughout April, Squatters Brew Pubs and Wasatch Brewery have been competing to sell the most guilt free desserts on behalf of their selected charities.
Squatters Park Ave selected FOAU as their charity, and $5 from every dessert was donated to FOAU. In addition, whichever location raised the most money, had their donation doubled by head office.
Well, Squatters Park Ave won – and so did our FOAU pets! By the end of April Squatters has raised $7,950 for FOAU. And in winning, that donation doubled to $15,900!
We had such a great time meeting everyone at Squatters Park Ave, and showing off our wonderful pets out the front of Squatters on the final weekend.
Thanks you so much to everyone at Squatters Park Ave for your support!
