Georgia is my best friend! She is a miniature pincher, and she is an absolute clown! She loves to burrow underneath the blankets, and run around the house all crazy! But she also just loves to chill with me while I’m watching TV. She loves her family, but not so much other people. My experience at this shelter was amazing! We were about to adopt a different dog that they had at the shelter, but we couldn’t resist saying hi to Georgia, and she just stole my heart right away! The people working at the shelter were so nice about letting us see any dog that we were interested in, and they also allowed us to play with the dogs until we decided which one would be out life long friend. I’ve had 3 dogs in my life, and Georgia is definitely a number one dog. She is my daughter, my life long “soul mate” and we were meant for each other. I owe it all to the amazing animal shelter! Now, even when she is gone, she will have changed my life!

My husband and I adopted our black lab mix, Penny, after our first dog died. We have a baby and needed a dog who would be good around kids and our cat. Penny is amazing with our baby and even snuggles with our cat. She has been amazing companion. She is also very healthy. I couldn’t have asked for a better dog. Thank you North Utah County Animal Shelter!

Where do I begin? Indie was our second pet adopted from the North Utah Valley Animal Shelter. Our first dog, Nero, is such a wonderful dog, and we felt he needed a friend. When we went in that day, we were actually looking for a smaller dog. But when we saw her, she just drew us in! When we walked up to her cage, she jumped almost as high as my head! She is so sweet and this is the only place that I would adopt a pet dog, and recommend friends to this shelter to! It didn’t take forever to get the adoption done with and were able to get her to her new home. She’s a heeler mix, which was the kind of dog we were looking for. We love our fur babies and we thank this shelter so much for providing them and giving them another chance at life! We don’t know where either of our dogs came from or their background stories, but they have made our lives so much brighter. Thank you, North Utah Valley Animal Shelter.

I adopted Gizmo in 2010 while traveling through Utah. And he has been such a great friend and companion. And he is such a happy dog. Gizmo is doing great and loves to travel in the car.

We adopted a male pug about two weeks ago from the shelter. He was thin but very healthy. He’s been an adorable addition to our pack. Thank you so much for keeping him for us to adopt. Now all 3 of our dogs have come from there and we wouldn’t dream of getting a dog from any other source

We love our dog, Ziggy. We adopted her in April 2013. She is a shepard mix, but we’re not sure what, we were told she came into the shelter with 2 other pups with no information – The vet said she was about 5 or 6 months old at the time. She is so fun, playful and hardly ever barks, she is very well behaved and has trained so well! We can’t imagine being without her. It was really fun to find her at the shelter and think about giving her a loving home and a chance at having a family. Getting her shots and tags and everything was easy with the information the shelter gave us.

My dog is named Louie, he is a Rat Terrier, Australian Cattle Dog and Beagle mix that I adopted from NUVAS there in Lindon back in November 2012. He was just a tiny thing around 6 weeks old with a belly full of worms but I couldn’t get him outta my head, so I had to get him! My first time seeing him was a Monday night and he was with his litter mate…I saw his little crooked markings and thought he was absolutely perfect…little floppy ears….thought about him all night long, came up with a name for him and then went back on Tuesday and got him…even took a sweater for him to wear on the way home because it was so cold outside! He got some de-wormer and was gaining weight within a couple of days and is now a very healthy, extremely intelligent, loyal, loving and highly devoted companion! He is great with my little dog and with my young child. He is so sweet! He is a wonderful addition to our house and family and I wouldn’t and couldn’t imagine my life without him! Thanks!

We adopted Kyah in May 2013 to help heal our broken hearts after the passing of our first boxer that we rescued eight years ago. Kyah quickly wiggled her way into our hearts and home. The shelter recognized her loving, sweet, and friendly nature and I feel that the timing was so perfect; someone must of known we needed her as much as she needed us. The shelter was excellent in answering any questions that we had and shared what they knew of Kyah’s story. They let us come in on numerous occasions to visit with her and walk her before we made a final decision, etc. Also, the adoption fee was extremely reasonable, which included shots and a spay credit to the vet we already use.

We went to the animal shelter in February, in hopes of finding a golden retriever. Most of the animals there were labs. We took out just about every single dog, and none of them seemed to work out. They were too hyper, etc. We found (Butch), now Kobe, and he was so adorable. He came out of the cage and he was extremely hyper, but the second we said “sit” he sat! He is extremely obedient, in fact, the best thing is that he doesn’t bark. He only barks when he feels extremely threatened. The staff was very kind, and gave him all his vaccinations before we left the shelter.

We adopted Nero about one year ago. He was just perfect for our family- not too large, short-haired, and he’s very good looking. When we adopted him, he was so excited just to be let out of his cage! The staff at that time were very nice. They let us take him out, and walk him around. They answered all of the questions we asked them. I would recommend anyone who’s looking for a pet, to visit this shelter. It’s very organized, and they have many wonderful pets to choose from. Nero’s made our family’s life much more enjoyable, and I’m so happy we found him at the shelter.

We adopted Buddy a rottweiler a few years ago. The staff was awesome at helping work with me because I went in there not looking for a pet. I had to convince my husband to get him and they were closing before he got off work, so they held him one more day for me. He has been the best pet I’ve ever had and he recently passed away and will be truly missed. He was 6 when we adopted him and from now on I will adopt my pets. I have 2 dogs and 3 cats, all rescued. Thank you for the wonderful experience that changed my life.

“I adopted our dachshund from the North Utah Valley Animal Shelter. Gracie is a wonderful dog. She was already house trained. She is the most loving dog we have ever owned. My experience at the shelter was great. The shelter staff helped me with all my questions and were a pleasure to work with. The adoption fee was fair. The fee included a license, vaccines, and a microchip. I recommend to anyone who may be interested in a new pet, to check out the North Utah Valley Animal Shelter. They have many more adoptable dogs and cats that need a new home. Please help them.”

“I adopted Patch, a lab mix, from the North Utah Valley Animal Shelter. Patch is a mellow, obedient dog who has responded well to training. The staff were courteous and answered all my questions. If I had a friend considering adopting from the North Utah Valley Animal Shelter, I would say, do it.”

“Lucy (poodle/yorkie mix) reminds me of one of our dogs who passed away…. Please find your next pet at the Lindon animal shelter.”

“We adopted Lucy, a pretty purebred Golden Retriever, from North Valley Animal Shelter over a year ago — she’s almost 4 — and she’s been the best dog! Lucy is the second dog we’ve adopted — and we’ve had no regrets. Lucy came house trained and loved our other dogs from day one. The staff at the animal shelter were very helpful. We had a lot of questions about several of the dogs — and their answers helped us to pick the dog that would best fit with our family. I would never hesitate to check out the local shelters for a family pet. And North Utah Valley Animal Shelter is a great place to start!”

“Walter is the most loving and kind little puppy. He loves to play with other dogs and gets along with everyone! The staff was very nice and helpful. I would recommend to anyone to adopt from a shelter. There are so many loving dogs and cats that need a happy loving home to call their own.”

“We took two months to look for our dog at the Lindon animal shelter last year. We finally met our dog “WHO” around Christmas time. He was just about six months old that time. He was just skin and bones, had canine flu and he needed family to help him survive. The Lindon animal shelter officers are seriously considering about the abandoned animals of the short unhappy life. When we adopt the Who, we could see the officers’ feeling. It looked like sending their kid to us. They are not just looking for unwanted dogs on the streets! Before Christmas, the Who jumped off from a child and broke his right skinny leg. We did not have his health insurance. We had a loan to fix the broken leg. Now children are carefully caring the Who. Now, the Who is very healthy, friendly and outgoing. He doesn’t want to stay home alone. He needs sleep with family every night. He helps smash water bottles for recycling. That is his job at home. And he checks his shopping items in the grocery bag. He is our important family member now. He bites us for asking to play sometimes. Eventually, we will fix the biting issue by the dog obedience class. We love him very much. Many people could not handle dogs which they bought from pet shop, drop them off at the animal shelter. Some people give away their unwanted dogs and cats to someone else, but most of them end up at the animal shelter. People who are looking for pets need to adopt them from the animal shelter. This helps the animals and the county shelter. At last, when you want adopt animals, you need to check their character, behavior, and size which you can handle or not. Check breed to compare with your life style, housing style, and income. Think the dog or cat is okay with your little children, and think caring costs from grooming to food. Have their animal health insurance can help you.”

“I adopted Hero from North Utah Valley Animal Shelter. I got her when she was only 2 1/2 months old. Hero is an Australian Shepherd, I have had her for about a week. She is the best puppy I have ever seen. She is the most cuddly dog ever. She is exactly what I was looking for. I named her Hero because I saved her and someday she will save me! I love her with all my heart. When I picked her up from her getting spayed I cried with her. She is my best friend. I love you Hero.”

“Kujo has changed my life in ways I would have never thought possible. Just a pet? Just a dog? Hardly! He is my best friend, my confidant, my pal. He makes me laugh every single day! I won’t lie and say it isn’t work because it is. However, rescuing Kujo was the most rewarding thing I have ever done. At the end of the day I ask this question: Who rescued who?”

“In February I adopted a 7 month old dog, he has been great. While we’ve had our up’s and down’s it was the best thing I’ve ever done. Great job in everything you do there.”

Hailey is a super sweet female Labrador Retriever. She was a little crazy for the first week but settled down as she felt more at home each day. Now she is fully integrated into the family. North Utah Valley Animal Shelter has rooms where you can get to know the animal away from the kennels and they will let you walk the dog outside. You have to expect any shelter dog to be anxious and want to go home with you. Spend time with them and you’ll see them relax and be themselves. Before adopting Hailey I’d always purchased puppies but she has been a treat to get to know and now I’m an adoption advocate. She has become like a sister to my other female Lab.

Lucy looks like a pure bred golden retriever — she was about two years old when we got her. She’s about 4 now. She’s the best dog ever! Whoever gave her up did a great job of training her. She came to us so well mannered — and because we’re seniors now, that was a plus! She’s such an asset to our family!
