Heathre Hone

Heathre Hone is the founder of Utah Valley Animal Rescue, and she’s the most paw-fect person for the job. Evidence we have to back up our point? She brought a live dog for her photo. Need we say more?  Heathre was a single mother working full time in the legal field and getting her college degree in business management when her daughter was born in 1990. After getting married to her now husband, Blaine, she went back for a second bachelor’s degree in accounting from UVU in 2006. Now, she uses both degrees to help all of our furry friends in need. She knows more than anyone that life can be “ruff.” The most important thing to Heathre and Utah Valley Animal Rescue is healing the injured, saving the abandoned, and serving the homeless animals of Utah County. Like many successful and famous businesses, Utah Valley Animal Rescue was started in Heathre’s garage! Just call her Steve Jobs with a dog. 

Plot Twist One of the biggest surprises in my life was meeting my biological family.

New Chapter Marrying my husband, Blaine, 20 years ago. He and I have built two businesses together, Blaine Hone Excavating and Utah Valley Animal Rescue, doing business as All Paws Count. We have a ranch with horses, cows, pigs, turkeys, chickens, ducks and geese. We also have a few cats and dogs. (Try a lot of cats and dogs.)

Life Genre I try for humor and I avoid drama.

The Sequel I want to have a huge animal rescue facility in Utah County that provides reduced cost spay/neuter services, training services and adoptions. I want to help people keep their pets, reduce pet overpopulation and eliminate abuse. I want to educate people on proper animal care and I want every animal to feel loved.
