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. The services offered to the community include adoption at The Tanger Outlet in Park City, the Purple Paw Project (sheltering pets for those fleeing domestic abuse situations) and School Education Outreach (teaching pet responsibility in local schools). In addition, we fund “trap-neuter-release” efforts for feral cats and are part of the No Kill Utah coalition.

Nuzzles's 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.

Once deemed adoptable, cats and dogs enter the retail program at the Nuzzles & Co. Adoption Center located in the Tanger Outlet Mall in Park City, UT. Next, they wiggle and waggle their way into caring hearts and homes.

To date, it has been possible to place over 13,000 pets with the special commitment of our donors, volunteers and staff. Your donation will help us save more lives and support No Kill Utah. Visit our Facebook page ( to see the beautiful lives we save with your generous help.
