Welcome to Whiskers!

Whiskers is a 100% volunteer-run nonprofit pet rescue operating in Davis, Weber and Salt Lake counties in Utah. We do take animals from surrounding areas as resources & space allows. In 2017, our volunteers collectively rescued and placed into permanent homes over 118 homeless pets in Utah. Our goal is to minimize the euthanasia of high-risk pets in Utah shelters,we cater to those most vulnerable in our shelters such as senior cats, those needing veterinary care, such as dentals and other medical cases as resources allow. Whiskers is dedicated to rescuing those truly in need. Reducing the number of unwanted pets through supporting spay and neuter programs, resources and education. Often times our experience and expertise can assist in keeping pets in their home by providing education and resources.

As a member of the Best Friends Animal Society™, NKUT™ (No Kill Utah) coalition we are working hard to bring about an end to homeless pets in Utah. We invite you to explore our programs, get involved and help us save lives!

Thanks to Maddie!

Maddie’s Fund® is a family foundation created in 1994 by Workday® co-founder Dave Duffield and his wife, Cheryl, who have endowed the Foundation with more than $300 million. Since then, the Foundation has awarded more than $237.6 million in grants toward increased community lifesaving, shelter management leadership, shelter medicine education and foster care across the U.S. The Duffields named Maddie’s Fund after their Miniature Schnauzer Maddie, who always made them laugh and gave them much joy. Maddie was with Dave and Cheryl for ten years and continues to inspire them today.

Maddie’s Fund is the fulfillment of a promise to an inspirational dog, investing its resources to create a no-kill nation where every dog and cat is guaranteed a healthy home or habitat. #ThanksToMaddie.
