This year, add a little bit more love to your Valentine’s Day by adopting a furry shelter animal from No More Homeless Pets’ holiday adoption event. Later, you can shake your tailfeather and fight breast cancer at the same time at a fundraiser formal prom. Then, you won’t want to miss a forum on the Occupy Wall Street movement.

My Furry Valentine Pet Adoption Event
Saturday, Feb. 11 & Sunday, Feb. 12
Local animal advocates of No More Homeless Pets Utah are hosting an adoption event this weekend in Ogden. Come find a furry companion as a Valentine’s gift. Or, adopt a cat or dog for yourself if you’re alone this holiday weekend and need a friend who will listen with undivided attention to all of your relationship woes. Newgate Mall, 3651 Wall Ave., 801-364-0370, Feb. 11, 10 a.m.-7 p.m.; Feb. 12, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., UtahPets.org

Forever Pink Prom
Saturday, Feb. 11

Since 2009, the Elyse Pantke White Foundation has been cutting footloose and fighting breast cancer all at the same time with its annual Forever Pink Prom. The prom is a semiformal event where couples raise money for the Huntsman Cancer Institute’s ongoing breast-cancer research. So, dust off your old tux or little black dress and step out in style against breast cancer. Tickets are $70, with proceeds going toward cancer-research efforts. Rice-Eccles Stadium Tower, 451 S. 1400 East, University of Utah, 801-718-1414, Feb. 11, 7-11 p.m., ElyseWhite.org

Occupying Public Spaces
Wednesday, Feb. 15

The Occupy Wall Street movement has become like a political revival of progressive and populist outrage. But what happens now with the movement will be the mark it will leave on politics and society. Come join sociology and political-science professors at a University of Utah debate to discuss the movement and what will happen with the occupation in the future. University of Utah, 260 S. Central Campus Drive, 801-581-8501, Feb. 15, 1:15-2:15 p.m., Hinckley.Utah.edu
