This will create a healthier shelter environment for all.r“Our staff here at the South Utah Valley Animal Shelter dedicates their time to caring for all of the animals that come to our shelter. This grant has been a great boost for morale knowing we will be able to provide needed medical care to the precious lives we help every day. Thank you so much Petco Foundation for helping us with our goal to provide needed medical care here at SUVAS ,” said Kierstan Munford, SUVAS executive director.rSUVAS serves all of southern Utah County from Provo to Santaquin. Its goals are to provide lost, abused and unwanted animals with compassion and proper care; make reasonable efforts to reunite lost pets with rightful owners; find adoptive homes for unclaimed/released pets; and to increase public awareness about the importance of pet identification (microchip, license, ID tags).
