During the last few weeks of June and the first two weeks of July, Pet Samaritan took in over 30 dogs from fire related areas in Colorado, New Mexico and Utah, that became overwhelmed with dogs affected by fires. Many of these dogs were able to be transferred to other rescue groups like Second Chance that took 5 puppies, but many of them are still waiting for adoption. Please check out website for these guys affected by fires and loss of their homes:
Rover and Kitty from the Pole Creek Fire in Utah.
Rover and Kitty are two young dogs under one year of age. Rover is a heeler mix and very scared, and Kitty is a pit bull that is helping Rover through his ordeal. Both were picked up by the fire incident commander for the Pole Creek fire. Kitty and Rover had some very sore feet and extremely tired. Picture of Kitty and Rover being transported to a foster home is included in their pet listings.
Keep in Mind......
Nobody appreciates the comfort of home like an older pet. Senior dogs and cats are often calmer and wiser, and always every bit as wonderful as younger pets. Yet, they're frequently overlooked for adoption. So please give a homeless senior pet a second chance of life!

We are always in need of people willing to open their heart and their home to an animal in need. Foster care of a homeless pet can be a very rewarding experience for everyone involved. Pet Samaritan covers medical and will provide food if necessary. The best foster homes are full-time homeowners with a fenced in yard and a lot of love and patience.
Adoption Center Upkeep:
We also love helpers to visit adoption Centers to take spend time with the cats. Canyon Rim PetSmart and South Jordan (District) and Draper PetCos generously provide display areas for our adoptable cats. We are responsible for cleaning the enclosures at least twice a week.
Cat and Dog Transport:
We need help transporting pets from shelters to foster homes, to and from Veterinarian clinics, and boarding facilities. For those willing, long distant travelers are needed at times, for pets being transferred to other Rescue groups outside Salt Lake City limits.
Feral Cat trap/neuter/ & release program:
Feral cat caregivers, to care about the overpopulation problem and wants to respond to it, are able to preserve and protect the lives of cats without adding to the problem. Feral cat caregivers provide day-to-day monitoring of the colony so that any newcomers can be quickly trapped and sterilized. These are feral, non-adoptable animals.
Support to local Animal Shelters:
Pet Samaritan supports and helps rescue animals from many local Utah Animal shelters including surounding states. Foster homes are always in dire need of supplies (pet food, blankets, towels) and donations to continue their progress with stray an abandoned dogs and cats. Please send donations in care of: Pet Samaritan Fund, 3802 S Sunnydale Dr., Salt Lake City Utah, 84109 or to Shelter Paws (c/o Darlene Koerner) P.O. Box 102, Vernal Utah, 84026
