COVID-19 Update: CAWS is closely monitoring the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and government directives. Animal Rescues are defined as Essential Services during this crisis, with conditions. We have adjusted our operations as required for the safety of the public, our volunteers, and our animals.

  • Adoptions are still happening! All in-store group adoption events are temporarily suspended, however. Please review adoptable animals at our website and and fill out the online adoption form. An adoption coordinator will contact you about next steps.
  • More foster homes are needed! Public shelters across Utah have largely closed to the public for now. Rescues like CAWS are working hard to help them and save more animals and clear the shelters. Start by filling out a foster application.
  • Your financial support is needed now more than ever. Like many non-profits, the COVID19 pandemic is placing more demands on CAWS. Your donation, in any amount, will help us help more homeless cats and dogs during this challenging time.

Help CAWS keep rescuing!

$2,560 of $10,000 raised

Friends, while the world is in lock down for the safety of our human community, many shelters are still overflowing with deserving dogs and cats.

These are challenging times for all of us and sadly, the homeless pets in shelters are now at greater risk than ever before, as shelters are forced to close their doors to public adoptions. In all of the chaos and panic, this is where CAWS can really help, with your support!

At CAWS, we are no less committed to saving adoptable pets. We have been overwhelmed with offers of help from folks who have TIME on their hands, and have made the decision to save EVEN MORE cats and dogs!!!

Our CAWS team is currently working to save substantially more lives. We are taking this opportunity to really dig down deep, and rush out to rescue these pets, now when it’s needed more than ever before.

We estimate these additional medical, supply, and transport costs will start at $10,000 and go up.

We NEED YOU, and can not do this without the help of our generous donors! With your financial help and our expanding foster network, we can really step it up and make a difference during this pandemic crisis, and until our shelters can once again operate normally.

The animals need our help. PLEASE consider donating to help us save as many as we can!

Thank you for always helping us save lives!

The CAWS Team xoxo

Thank you to all of CAWS’s kind donors:
