There will also be a veterinarian available to do vaccinations for your furry friends. There will be a reindeer and lots of other surprises to see. Your pet is welcome to come with you.
The South Utah Valley Animal Shelter serves southern Utah County from Provo to Santaquin. Stray (lost) and unwanted animals are brought to the shelter to find their families or to find new forever homes. The shelter adopts out dogs, cats and various other animals. Sometimes you can find a snake, rabbit, turtle and other animals available for adoption. SUVAS also does mirochipping for your pet for $20. This is a wonderful way of having permanent ID with your pet at all times. Many vets, shelters and animal control officers now have chip readers to be able to get your pet back home as soon as possible if they are found.
The shelter also provides licensing for your pet and holds rabies and licensing clinics throughout its district to help residents with those needs. You can find upcoming clinics at SUVAS.org. Come to the fair and find out what we’re all about.
