Who We Are
The Pet Samaritan Fund, a nonprofit organization was established in 1991 by founder Emily C. Dial, when she saw the desperate need to help
the most helpless members of Society-abandoned/injured and/or abused pets in the Salt Lake City, Utah and surrounding areas.....
Every penny we raise goes to caring for our animals, and we never euthanize a healthy animal.
Pet Samaritan supports and helps rescue animals from the Roosevelt/Duchesne County Shelter and Vernal/Uintah County shelter. These shelters and foster homes are always in dire need of supplies (pet food, blankets, towels) and donations to continue their progress with stray an abandoned dogs and cats. Please send donations in care of: Pet Samaritan Fund, 3802 S Sunnydale Dr., Salt Lake City Utah, 84109 or to Shelter Paws (c/o Darlene Koerner) P.O. Box 102, Vernal Utah, 84026
- Shelter for sick, injured, abandoned, and abused animals.

|About Pet Samaritan...
The Pet Samaritan Fund, a nonprofit organization established in 1991, aids needy animals mainly on the Wasatch Front and Uintah Basin. We are not operated or fundedby any national humane groups or government agencies and must rely on our adoptions fees and contributions.
Every penny we raise goes to caring for our animals, and we never euthanize a healthy, adoptable animal.
•Shelter and medical care for animals taken into our foster program until permanent homes can be found. Most of our animals are from municipal shelters.
•Assistance to spay and neuter animals for low income families in our areas
|Caring for Homeless Pets...
It is the highest priority of the Pet Samaritan Fund to adopt out healthy and behaviorally sound animals to our caring community. Our adoption fees help to offset the cost of evaluation, housing, feeding and medical care for the many animals in our care.
We do our best to keep our adoption prices reasonable while generating income to support our goal of caring for adoptable animals until we can place them in a loving home. Because we are a nonprofit, donations subsidize the gap between the cost for care and the adoption fee. It is only through the generosity of donors that we have the resources to help so many animals and hold them until we can find a home.
Dog adoption fees range from $75 to $150 plus. Cat adoption fees: $75 to $100 plus. The adoption fee for each animal varies and is dependent on many factors including: age, size, behavior, medical condition, and public demand. You'll find that our adoption package is a great value. If you are 60 years or older, ask about our Senior Adoption Discount program.
Adoption Package Includes:
- Sterilization (spay/neuter)
- Complete Routine vaccination series including Rabies
- Deworming (young animals)
- Pet Information
