The Ivins Animal Shelter & Adoption Center is a "no-kill" municipal shelter by ordinance. We have been successful this year in placing almost all of the animals taken in at the shelter. Nathan Winograd of "No Kill Solutions" described our shelter as the safest in the nation with a save record of 97% in 2006 and a 98.1% in 2007. We are working very hard to maintain our save record.
Recently the Ivins City Council passed a very progressive Animal Control Ordinance. The ordinance will help protect animals in Ivins City.
Friends of Ivins Animal Shelter, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit corporation, was founded to raise funds to support the "No Kill" philosophy at our municipal shelter. Ivins is a small community without a large commercial tax base. All programs including spay/neuter, vaccinations, emergency medical care, general health care, adoption events and advertising to mention a few are funded by donations to Friends of Ivins Animal Shelter, 661 East 425 South, Ivins, Utah 84738. You may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 435.673.1718.
Adopting a friend
Our adoption fees are: $50.00 for dogs and $25.00
If the animal has not been spayed/neutered an agreement must be signed to do so within a certain period of time. We request the adoptive family pay for the spay/neuter.
If you live in Ivins, there is also a licensing fee for dogs.
