Nuzzles & Co. (formerly Friends of Animals Utah) is dedicated to rescuing dogs and cats from shelters and adopting them into loving homes.

Nuzzles & Co. (formerly Friends of Animals Utah--FOAU) is a private, nonprofit 501(c)3 organization founded in 1990 by a very dedicated group of volunteers committed to finding loving homes for animals in need. Our name has changed, but our mission of dog and cat rescue and adoption has remained steady for 25 years.

Our life saving efforts have made Summit County, Utah a no-kill community, just one of 200 communities nationwide choosing to save adoptable cats and dogs rather than opting for euthanasia.

To date, we have placed nearly 15,000 pets in their forever homes. Your donation will help us save more lives and support No Kill Utah.

In addition, our services include adoption at The Tanger Outlet in Park City, the Purple Paw Program (sheltering pets for those fleeing domestic abuse situations) and School Education Outreach (teaching pet responsibility in local schools). We also provide low-cost and free spay/neuter vouchers to help control cat and dog populations in the community.

Nuzzles' staff visits animal shelters throughout Utah every week and other locations as needs arise to rescue healthy adoptable cats and dogs. Many of these pets are saved from euthanasia. The animals in our program come to us for a variety of reasons from abandonment and owner surrender to rescue from abusive situations.

Each cat and dog makes its first stop at the Nuzzles & Co. Rescue & Rehabilitation Ranch in Peoa, UT for a thorough health and behavior assessment, vaccinations, microchip, spaying/neutering, supervised play and behavior training. The 16,000 square foot Ranch, made possible by ongoing, generous donations from our supporters, opened in 2010 and houses a fully operational vet suite, kennels and play areas, an education center and staff offices.

Cats and dogs ready for adoption then go to our adoption center at Tanger Outlet Center to meet their forever families and wiggle and waggle their way into caring hearts and homes.
