SF an­i­mal shelter re­ceives Petco grant

Serve Daily - - FRONT PAGE -

The South Utah Val­ley An­i­mal Shelter in Span­ish Fork has re­ceived a $5,000 grant from the Petco Foun­da­tion. The money will be used to cre­ate a med­i­cal fund for the an­i­mals that come into the shelter. The shelter does not have a vet on staff and when an­i­mals come in need­ing med­i­cal help, they have only been able to pro­vide some com­fort mea­sures. With this money, they will be able to pro­vide an­tibi­otics, pain med­i­ca­tions, some vet­eri­nar­ian care and vac­ci­na­tions. As this fund is de­pleted, the shelter hopes the pub­lic will keep it in mind. The shelter would like to grow the med­i­cal fund to be able to keep help­ing the an­i­mals it re­ceives.

The shelter ex­press its thanks to the Petco Foun­da­tion and also the res­cue or­ga­ni­za­tions that work with it. In 2016, they res­cued 1,177 an­i­mals out of the shelter. In the past year, 514 an­i­mals have been adopted by their new fam­i­lies.

The shelter is lo­cated at 582 W. 3000 North in Span­ish Fork. It is open Mon­day through Fri­day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Satur­days 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The shelter is closed Tues­days from noon to 1:30 p.m. Adop­tions start one hour af­ter open­ing and end one hour be­fore clos­ing. Call 801- 851-4080 for more in­for­ma­tion.
