Welcome to INKAS – Ivins No-Kill Animal Supporters

Ivins No-Kill Animal Supporters, INKAS, is a 501(c)3 organization and a Registered Utah Charity. It was founded by a group of women who banded together to support the needs of the Ivins Animal Shelter.

Our Mission

INKAS was formed to support the no-kill philosophy of the Ivins Municipal Animal Shelter and Adoption Center.  In addition to raising funds, we promote the no-kill status to gain goodwill, which leads to increased community support and donations.

Direct Helping Power

INKAS does not provide cash directly to the Ivins Shelter.  Instead we directly pay for various items and services that the shelter needs and requests, such as veterinary care, food, medications, cages, litter boxes, bedding, harnesses and leashes, etc.  Capital improvements to the shelter are also a priority.

Working With Ivins

INKAS works with the City of Ivins under the terms of a Memorandum of Understanding.  All Directors and Officers of INKAS are unpaid volunteers

Help Needed

INKAS has recently made an increased financial commitment to keeping animals adoptable by underwriting the cost of professional dog training classes, and socialization visits to a professional exercise facility.  We have also instituted a program of assistance to adopters who need some assistance with training their new furry family members.  We have seen a good benefit from these expenditures in the way of successful adoptions, and the general welfare of the dogs, some of whom have had sad experiences before coming to the shelter.  We think it’s important to make them the best canine citizens they can be.

In addition, of course, INKAS will continue to pay for all the various items and services that the shelter needs and requests in order to provide a loving and comfortable “waiting place” for the homeless animals until they find their forever homes.
