Last month, Best Friends Animal Society, along with dozens of animal welfare organizations, announced the launch of NKUT as a final push to make Utah a state that no longer kills cats and dogs in shelters, simply for not finding homes. The goal is to make Utah a no-kill state by the beginning of 2019. The initiative is designed to get animal shelters around the state to a collective 90 percent save rate, which would make Utah the nation’s second no-kill state, following New Hampshire
