Our Featured Pet...
Sam is black and tan Manchester Terrier, approximately 14 years old. He was surrendered by his owner along with a 6 year old Chihuahua. Sam was not bonded to him so we are comfortable finding them separate homes.
Unfortunately Sam has been neglected for a long time and has some lasting effects from that. Sam has had a full veterinary work up and has been diagnosed with Cushings Disease. The treatment can be very hard on older dogs so due to his age we are not going to aggressively treat it.
Sam has been checked out by the eye doctor. He has some vision, mostly light and shadows in his left eye and no vision in his right eye. He is currently on eye drops for irritation in his right eye. The eye doctor said he has probably been visually impaired for some time based on how quickly he adapted and learned to navigate his new environment at his foster home.
Other than that he is just a skinny, mostly blind senior citizen. And we are working on the skinny part! He loves to eat! He still has a good quality of life. He enjoys tootling around the back yard, eating and snuggling. He seems to be cognitively intact and should still have some quality time left on earth.
Sam has been in a home with both cats, dogs and pretty much ignores them. But he loves his humans. He would do best in a nice calm, quiet home with someone who can spend a lot of time with him and help him enjoy the rest of the time he has.
He is loving, curious, and very, very sweet.
He wants nothing more than a full belly, a nice soft bed and kisses.
Sam has been neutered, current on vaccinations, tested negative for heartworm and also micro chipped.

The Utah Animal Advocacy Foundation is celebrating 14 years of saving lives! A big thanks to our dedicated team of volunteers who have made it all possible. In the past 14 years, we've rescued over 1000 animals and look forward to rescuing many more in the years to come!
Who We Are
The Utah Animal Advocacy Foundation (UAAF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization specializing in the rescue, rehabilitation, and placement of homeless animals. UAAF is an active participant in the No More Homeless Pets in Utah coalition and is working closely with other coalition members to help end the euthanasia of homeless pets. We are an all-volunteer organization and rely entirely on public support for our continued success.
UAAF believes that every animal deserves a home regardless of age or disability. We specialize in the rescue and rehabilitation of 'special needs' animals including orphaned newborns, senior animals, animals with behavioral issues, injured animals, and animals with ongoing health problems. Since our founding in September 2002, we have successfully placed hundreds of these deserving animals into loving homes.
We Need Your Help!
Looking to help but don't know how? We are looking for volunteer help at fundraisers and adoption events and we always need more foster homes! If you would like more information on how you can help UAAF save lives, please call email: firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling Maryjo at (801) 809-0602.
