Pets are packing up in preparation for a Super road trip

April 26, 2017

Buckle up and grab the snacks…We’re heading north!

Dogs, cats, puppies and kittens from all over the state of Utah are loading up their luggage and heading to Farmington, as the NKUT Super Adoption takes place in Davis County for the first time in the event’s 18-year history.

The Best Friends NKUT Super Adoption, presented by BOBS from Skechers® takes place this weekend at the Legacy Events Center in Farmington. Hours are Friday, April 28 noon to 7 p.m. and Saturday, April 29, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.  Parking and admission are free.

It's incredibly convenient to get to -- just off I-15 (Lagoon Exit) and Highway 89. There’s a nearby FrontRunner stop at Farmington Station, and UTA is pet friendly. This beautiful space should be just the right one to match hundreds of homeless pets with their new families.

The new location is only 15 minutes from downtown SLC and 10 minutes from the previous location and there’s a Petco nearby for essential supplies for your new pet. This is the first time since 2000 that the event has been held outside of Salt Lake City.

Adoption fees start at $25 for cats and $50 for dogs and are set by individual groups. Each animal is spayed/neutered, vaccinated and most are microchipped. Free microchips are available onsite for those who are not already chipped.

Beyond the 700 adorable adoptables this weekend, there will be additional services and activities, including: Hands-on pet toy making for children from Kids4Pets, “Soft paws” nail tips for adopted cats and information on alternatives to declawing from Paw Project Utah and Davis County will offer microchipping and licensing.
