We just wanted to take a moment to appreciate all the wonderful animals in our lives. Whether you’re stressed out, feeling sick or just not having a great day, your pets are always there to cheer you up with cuddles, licks and play. If you are looking to give a loving animal a warm and welcoming home, The Humane Society of Utah, Best Friends Animal Society and Nuzzles and Co are a few local rescues ready to introduce you to your newest family member. Below are all the rescue pets of Salt Lake Mag:
Name: Lady Ophelia “Philly” Bartholomew
Age: 9 months old
Likes: Bubbles, paper grocery bags, visiting drive thrus, tin foil and any food that is not hers.
Age: 11 years old
Likes: Oinkies, cookies and belly rubs.
Age: 2 years old
Likes: wand toys, going outside on a harness, stealing food from her humans plate
Age: 6 years old
Likes: heated beds, hiding treats, snuggling
Personality traits: self-centered, self-serving, easily scared (but not of cucumbers), picks fights with other animals but loses to raccoons. On the plus side, he purrs adequately and comes (usually) sullenly when called.
Personality Traits: She’s super loyal to me and my family, and she has a big personality that includes a large amount of sass! She loves being the center of attention and will only bark at or chase small children because she thinks she’s a big dog but is too scared to confront anyone else. Her favorite thing to do is to stick her head outside the window during car rides and run around the house like she’s the flash.
Name: Texas (the name she came with, we guess because of the white star pattern on her face)
Age: 7 years old
Personality Traits/Likes: Good listener, loyal, leery of small children. Napping, drinks from the tap, enjoys being brushed and prefers fresh kibble.
Name: Casper (because of his ghostly color)
Age: 2 years old
Likes: Cuddling, long naps, drinking out of the toilet, soft blankets, rolling around on the kitchen floor, pretending he’s a lion and making people happy.
