Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r South Utah Valley Animal Shelter (SUVAS) in South Utah County announced it has been awarded a $55,000 grant from the Petco Foundation to support its Adoption Readiness (spay/neuter/vaccinate) program.

The Petco Foundation investment will help make animals at SUVAS ready for adoption through spay/neuter surgeries and vaccinations, therefore increasing the chance that more pets find loving homes.

“I want to personally thank the Petco Foundation for helping us save more lives!” said Kierstan Munford, executive director at SUVAS. “SUVAS is always trying to find ways to better the lives of the animals in our community and make it possible for them to find forever homes. This grant will enable us to spay/neuter/vaccinate more animals making them adoption ready and will help reduce the pet population entering the shelters.”
