PROVO (KSL News Services) – Employees at several Utah County animal clinics say they're fed up. They’re trying to figure out a way to prevent people from dumping animals on their door step at night. They say it’s becoming a serious problem.

Milissa Zobell with the Australian Shepard Rescue of Utah says the clinics usually end up euthanizing the animals because they don't have the time or the money to take care of them. She says animals have been abandoned at three separate clinics in the Provo area during the past week. She even avoids telling people where she lives anymore because people are dumping dogs and cats at her house as well.

Abandoning animals in the state of Utah is against the law.
