The South Utah Val­ley An­i­mal Shel­ter will hold its an­nual Pet Fair on May 20 at the shel­ter, which is lo­cated at 582 W. 3000 North in Span­ish Fork. The event will run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the shel­ter grounds.

There will be demon­stra­tions, ven­dors, a kid’s area and food avail­able. There will also be a vet­eri­nar­ian avail­able to do vac­ci­na­tions for your furry friends. There will be a rein­deer and lots of other sur­prises to see. Your pet is wel­come to come with you.

The South Utah Val­ley An­i­mal Shel­ter serves south­ern Utah County from Provo to San­taquin. Stray (lost) and un­wanted an­i­mals are brought to the shel­ter to find their fam­i­lies or to find new for­ever homes. The shel­ter adopts out dogs, cats and var­i­ous other an­i­mals. Some­times you can find a snake, rab­bit, tur­tle and other an­i­mals avail­able for adop­tion.

SUVAS also does mirochip­ping for your pet for $20. This is a won­der­ful way of hav­ing per­ma­nent ID with your pet at all times. Many vets, shel­ters and an­i­mal con­trol of­fi­cers now have chip read­ers to be able to get your pet back home as soon as pos­si­ble if they are found.

The shel­ter also pro­vides li­cens­ing for your pet and holds ra­bies and li­cens­ing clin­ics through­out its dis­trict to help res­i­dents with those needs. You can find up­com­ing clin­ics at SUVAS. org. Come to the fair and find out what we’re all about.
