ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

No More Homeless Pets in Utah (NMHPU) is dedicated to ending the euthanasia of homeless dogs and cats statewide and to promoting humane alternatives for feral cats. Annually, more than 35,000 dogs and cats are euthanized in Utah (that’s nearly 100 animals every day!). NMHPU supports a number of programs which focus on spaying and neutering; adoptions; and creating collaborative partnerships with other agencies.

Since its creation in 1999, NMHPU has dramatically decreased the euthanasia rate throughout the state. The E-metric, or number of animals killed per 1,000 human population, once stood at 21.7. Today we are ecstatic to report that the E-Metric has been lowered to 12.8 and continues to drop. The future for Utah's animals looks bright, with the ultimate E-metric goal of 5.0 well in site.
