BAM was founded in March 2006 by J Schilling after she recognized a need in the community for an animal welfare organization. BAM serves Southwest Utah and beyond as a resource for many companion-animal related issues. All BAM programs and services are fully funded by donations, wills, and bequests, and through the dedication of volunteers. We do not receive any state or federal funding, nor are we a United Way agency. BAM operates as a network of foster homes to assist pets in need of finding their forever homes, and as a network of volunteers to support community programs focused on building strong humane relationships between people and their pets.
