Adopt one of the Super 60!
We're transporting 60 incredible dogs from a struggling shelter in south Texas to Salt Lake City just in time for NKUT Super Adoption. These highly adoptable dogs -- many of them puppies -- will be spending a few weeks in foster homes and with some of our NKUT coalition partners, waiting for their chance to find a forever home at the event. Watch for the special area and kennel tags designating pups who were part of the Super 60 at the Utah State Fairpark on November 2nd and 3rd.
NKUT Super Adoption
What is NKUT Super Adoption?
It’s a cooperative effort in which shelters and rescue groups come together in a free, fun, festival-like atmosphere to find homes for hundreds of animals during a weekend. The participating shelters and rescue groups are members of Best Friends' NKUT Coalition. Generally held twice a year, NKUT Super Adoption is the continuation of a 25-year run of large adoption events in Salt Lake City, called Pet Super Adoptions.
We're back at the Utah State Fairpark on North Temple in Salt Lake City this fall. This beautiful indoor/outdoor space is convenient to get to from anywhere in the valley, with plenty of free parking and easy access to TRAX.
What to expect
Expect to have a lot of fun, and to meet hundreds of adorable, adoptable cats, dogs and rabbits. 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. We welcome well behaved and socialized dogs on fixed leashes and under adult control in all areas except the cat building. Meet-and-greet-areas will be staffed by volunteers and specialists who can help with introductions.
