Spring Super Adoption 2013


Spring Pet Super Adoption

The Best Friends Pet Super Adoption in Northern Utah, May 17–19, will be bigger and better than ever this year! For the first time, this fun-filled mega adoption event will be held at the Utah State Fairpark (155 N 1000 W) in Salt Lake City. The extra-big venue will provide ample space for all the wonderful pets and the public, who show up in droves at each event.

Best Friends Animal Society has been providing one of the largest lifesaving platforms for shelters and rescues in Utah for over a dozen years in Salt Lake City – the Pet Super Adoption.

The “Super,” as it’s widely known by the pet-loving public, brings together shelters, rescues and other animal welfare nonprofits for a multi-day adoption event wrapped in a festive environment. Dogs, puppies, cats and kittens are all available to go home to loving families.The attendees know they are having a great time, but there’s some serious lifesaving going on – rather than buying a pet from a breeder or store, they are saving lives when they add an adoptable animal to their household from the event.

Dates: May 17-19, 2013

Times: Friday noon - 7 pm; Saturday 10 am - 7 pm; Sunday 10 am - 4 pm
