About Us

Who are we?

CAWS is a no-kill, volunteer and foster-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is working with the community to help animals. As Utahโ€™s oldest animal rescue group, our ongoing rescue, foster, education and adoption programs help animals whose time is up at shelters, those who are abandoned, and as our resources allow, those whom their owners can no longer keep.

We are committed to saving the animals that are often overlooked and under-appreciated at local shelters; this includes, the sick, injured, senior and neonatal kittens and their mothers. We are dedicated to helping those special needs animals find their forever homes.

Our rescue and adoption process is sustainable, innovative and effective. In 2015, we rescued and adopted out over one thousand dogs and cats from shelters throughout the state of Utah.

What People Say

  • We took Sage to her first swimming lesson today. She was pretty unsure at first, as she is with all new things, but toward the end she started to get the hang of it. We were so proud and had so much fun!

  • CJ is still interested in toys, but at nearly 8 years old she seems to have decided she will lounge on her heating pad on my desk rather than bounce around the room like a kitten. There's NO WAY I'm going to get that flannel tail away from her!
