Jessica with Puppy

Hi, I'm Jessica, the founder and director of Evergreen Animal Rescue.

Thank you for your interest in helping us care for animals in need!

We’re a foster-based non-profit rescue serving dogs and cats in Sanpete County, UT. We’re still small and scrappy, but we’re working to help as many animals as we can — and you can join us! Your support is critical and we can’t do this without you.


Frequently Asked Questions

We are based in Ephraim, UT and serve Sanpete County and surrounding communities.

Currently, we are only serving dogs and cats (and puppies and kittens, of course!).

At this time, we do not have a physical location and are 100% foster-based.

We are not currently able to take owner surrenders or rehoming requests in most cases. However, we may be able to help connect you with helpful resources if you reach out.

You can foster, donate, share our mission with others, and watch for more opportunities to volunteer as we grow! If you have specific skills or resources you’d like to contribute, please reach out.

You can mail a check to us at PO Box 144 Ephraim, UT 84627. You can also donate directly to our veterinary account at Mt Pleasant Animal Hospital.

Yes, though it takes us some time to process this paperwork. If you’d like a donation receipt, please leave that in your comment on Venmo or include a note with your check.

We generally welcome donations of cat and dog food and supplies. Please contact us and we can chat and give you a drop-off location.

We are 100% volunteer based and do not have any paid employees.

Our working cats are kitties that are unsocialized or feral to some extent and do not want human interaction. The working cat program allows these cats to go to safe homes where they can receive shelter, food, and safety while doing what cats do best and helping control pests. They are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. We adopt our cats out in groups of 2 or more. Check out our Working Cat Adoption Application to learn more.

It depends on the animal. You can apply to foster only dogs, only cats, or both. You always have the opportunity to accept or decline a foster request. See our application for more information about how to know if you’re a good fit for fostering.

We are currently building our online database. For now, check out our Facebook page to learn more about the animals we have in the rescue.

We don’t have a spay/neuter clinic or vouchers at this time. We may be able to help you find a location or resources to take care of your pet.

We try to keep track of all the lost and found animals in Sanpete. If you have Facebook, check the Sanpete lost and found pages. If not, reach out and we’ll do our best to help!

If you found a dog and live in one of the following cities, contact Dispatch and they will pick the animal for a mandatory stray hold: Centerfield, Fairview, Fayette, Fountain Green, Gunnison, Ephraim, Manti, Mayfield, Moroni, Mt Pleasant, and Spring City. If you found a dog and live outside these areas, please post to a Sanpete lost and found page on Facebook and/or contact us. If you found a cat, post to social media and/or contact us. There is no animal control for cats in Sanpete.

If the infant(s) are in immediate danger [e.g. from extreme temperatures, cars, predators] you can remove them. If they are not in immediate danger, leave them where they are and watch for a mother to return, then remove the mother and infants together. If you must remove the babies, they will require extensive care and feeding. You should watch for a mother to return to the area, as babies have a much better survival rate with their mother, and the mother can suffer complications if separated from her babies while nursing. You can contact us for more advice or assistance.

Adoption fees help us ensure that our animals go to homes where they will be well cared for, and where their new families are financially prepared to meet their needs. All adoption fees go directly back into the rescue. In most cases, the adoption fee is only a fraction of the cost that the rescue invests to get animals ready for their forever homes!

Animals in the rescue have already been through a lot. We want to help ensure the rest of their lives are as stress-free and happy as possible! We also want to ensure a good fit for both people and pets to create the best outcomes we can.

We back our animals for life. Adopters sign an agreement stipulating that they will return the animals to the rescue if they are no longer able/willing to care for them at any point in their lives. This applies even if the adopter has moved out of the area.
