Animal Services

Mission Statement

To ensure that all animals are adopted and have a good home.


HVAS has joined Petco Love in their Vaccinated & Loved campaign!  This campaign is targeted at fighting preventable diseases by providing free vaccines to the dogs and cats in our community. We’re super excited to be a part of this lifesaving effort! 

Vaccines will be available at the Heber Valley Shelter every Friday from 10AM-5PM during the months of June 2023 and July 2023 (while supplies last). 

Effective 10/1/2022:

Due to the rapid growth of the county and limited space, Heber Valley Animal Services will no longer be accepting owner surrenders. If you have an animal you need to rehome, please try reaching out to the following resources here, for help:

There are many additional resources on the internet that can help with behavioral/training issues, pet-friendly housing and affordable veterinary services. If you have any questions or need more resources, please call the animal shelter at 435-654-5727.


The Heber Animal Shelter is a no-kill rescue shelter. Contact the main office at 435-654-5727 for more information about animals. 

HVAS only accepts animals into our shelter, that are from within the Wasatch County Boundaries.  We are not accepting owner surrenders at this time.  All others will be turned away.

Heber Valley Animal Services will not accept any animal that has been adopted from a rescue. If you need to surrender an animal that was adopted from an established rescue group, please contact them to return the animal back to their organization. Most rescues have a clause in their adoption contract requiring the animal to be returned to them if the adopter is no longer able to care for it.
