“Diva had a great Christmas. Thanks CAWS for rescuing her.”
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 Utah’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 have had Red for almost a year now and there are still so many times we wonder what his previous life was like. He loves pouring himself into our laps and getting petted non stop. We are so lucky to have him in our lives. Thank you CAWS for helping us find this fur baby to complete our pack (for now).”
“It’s been about 2 and a half months since we adopted Roxie (original name: Echo). I couldn’t imagine not having her now. She brings us such joy in all of her weird, but adorable quirks. And the husky in our house has certainly become Rosie’s best friend. Thanks CAWS for helping me find the perfect addition to our family.”
