SANDY, Utah, Nov. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mountain America Credit Union has partnered with the Humane Society of Utah to present “Fall in Love” adoption special. As part of this event, all adoption fees will be waived on Saturday, November 23, 2019, to help homeless pets find their forever homes before the holidays.
“Mountain America is honored to support the Humane Society of Utah’s life-saving mission by helping homeless pets find homes,” says Sharon Cook, chief marketing and public relations officer at Mountain America Credit Union. “The ‘Fall in Love’ event paves the way for hundreds of pets to find homes before the holidays and allows hundreds more to be saved by creating space for transfers from overcrowded shelters.
Interested adopters can visit the Humane Society of Utah adoption center located at 4242 South 300 West in Murray, Utah, between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. on November 23, 2019. All standard adoptions policies and procedures still apply during this event. In 2018, nearly all of the pets at the Humane Society of Utah found homes, with more than 140 pets adopted during the “Fall in Love” event.
"We're grateful to Mountain America for partnering with us to save lives and help our pets find new loving homes in time for the holidays," says Deann Shepherd, director of marketing and communications at the Humane Society of Utah. "Removing an adoption fee does not devalue the animal for the adopter; they still love and care for their new pet just the same. During our ‘Fall in Love’ event, we'll be adopting on a first-come, first-served basis, so bring all family members down to meet the animals. We trust our adoption process to ensure that our animals find the best homes possible, and we hope that every pet in our shelter goes home!"
