Cat Days of Summer Adoption Fest
What is Cat Days of Summer?
It’s a cooperative effort in which shelters and rescue groups from across northern Utah come together in a free, fun atmosphere to find homes for dozens of cats and kittens at the height of what we call "kitten season." Shelters and rescue groups are often overwhelmed by the number of kittens coming in during th summer months, so adoptions are especially important at this time of year. The participating shelters and rescue groups are members of Best Friends–Utah’s NKUT Coalition. Think of it like a mini, indoor, feline-focused version of NKUT Super Adoption! Admission is free and adoption fees start at just $10.
A brand new location!
You may recall the Cool Cat Adoption Fest at Trolley Square in 2016. This year we're growing, and moving to The Gateway in the space formerly occupied by J Crew, at the corner of 100 South and Rio Grande Street. It has great parking and street access, and we'll be coinciding with an exciting food truck event (details to be announced)!
What to expect
Expect to have a lot of fun, and to meet dozens of adorable, adoptable cats and kittens. Each participating rescue group and shelter at the event has its own adoption application, interview process and adoption fee structure. Adoption fees help cover costs such as spay/neuter, vaccinations and other medical needs. Please note that all participating shelters and many of the participating rescue groups offer same-day adoptions, but some groups require home checks as part of the application process. Potential adopters should come prepared with a valid form of identification and payment. If you’re a renter, it’s a good idea to have a letter from your landlord stating that you are allowed to have a pet.
Adoption fees include spay/neuter and vaccinations. Admission is FREE and adoption fees start at just $10! Thanks to The Gateway for making this event possible.
When: Saturday, August 12, 10am to 4pm.
Where: The Gateway, 100 S Rio Grande St, Salt Lake City, UT 84101
