Give a Wag! Gives to Park City Shelters

There are several animal rescue organizations serving the pets and people of Park City that are dedicated to mitigating pet overpopulation and placing each and every homeless animal into a responsible, loving home. Of these shelters, Nuzzles & Co is located right in Park City and offers a plethora of programs and services targeted at alleviating animal suffering, overpopulation, disease, and premature death. 

Their dream is simple: a world where love wins and every animal has a home. Nuzzles & Co, formerly known as Friends of Animals Utah, was founded in 1990 by a group of animal loving citizens who saw the need for a safe haven for Park City's homeless animals. In their early days, the organization served as a rescue group that fostered animals until they were placed in permanent homes. 

While committing their work to animal welfare, the rescue successfully lobbied for an animal control shelter in Summit County, which was built in 1995. Today, Nuzzles & Co operates their own adoption center and rescue ranch, both with state-of-the-art facilities to maximize the number of animals they can help, house, and find fur-ever homes! 

Services available for the pets and people of the local community include adoptions, low-cost spay/neuter clinics, a foster program, and the Purple Paw program for domestic violence survivors. Every animal that comes into their care receives a veterinary evaluation, vaccinations, critical medical care, a spay/neuter procedure, and extensive behavior training, socialization, and enrichment. Since 1990, Nuzzles & Co has found homes for more than 15,000 animals as they continue to fulfil their mission to protect pets!

Summit County Utah Animal Control has operated a shelter and adoption center since 1995. In addition to serving Park City, they are a resource for the pets and people all over Summit County. The shelter takes in stray and unwanted animals with the end goal of adopting them into caring homes. Working with other local rescues, like Nuzzles & Co, they are able to achieve this goal and they never euthanize any healthy, adoptable animals! Summit County Animal Control provides animal refuge, dog licensing, adoption services, educational programs, lost and found animal reporting, and animal control law enforcement. It is their mission to promote spaying/neutering and responsible pet ownership for a future where every pet has a home.

    #3 Willow Creek Dog Pond

    Does your dog enjoy wading in the water or paddling through a pond? The Willow Creek Dog Pond is a favorite place among Park City's canine citizens and visitors alike to cool off on a hot day! This one-acre summer swimming pond is designated specifically for dog use, so bring out your furry friend for some much-needed exercise, socialization, and good old-fashioned play! The perimeter of the pond is grassy and easy to walk while your pal prances and paddles. There are even several shade structures and a floating dock for the more adventurous dogs to dive off of! In addition to the pond, there is a second off-leash grassy area within Willow Creek Park and both are fully fenced and secure. The park also features trails, restrooms, a dog-washing station, playgrounds, and playing fields. Be sure to clean up after your pets and keep them leashed outside of the designated off-leash areas!
