Other ways to give to the animals

Tax check-off
You can help save lives with a simple stroke of your pen. Just check “Cat and Dog Spay/Neuter Community Program” on your Utah state tax return and put your taxes to work saving the lives of dogs and cats. The funds raised help low-income families spay or neuter their pets via local veterinarians throughout the state.

License plate fund
Support spay/neuter efforts in your community by getting the No More Homeless Pets license plate for your vehicle. The plate costs just $25 a year, with all proceeds going to help the animals through Best Friends–Utah’s spay/neuter programs. Just visit any DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) location in Utah and tell the clerk you want the No More Homeless Pets license plate. 

Squatters’ Chasing Tail Golden Ale
Since 2004, Best Friends–Utah has partnered with Squatters Pubs and Microbrewery to help save the lives of homeless pets. For every Chasing Tail Golden Ale you purchase, the brewery donates five cents to Best Friends.
