This weekend, save a life and adopt a furry friend at the Best Friends Animal Society no-kill adoption weekend, or even volunteer to help with the event. You can also donate your green thumb to help raise a farm for refugee families in Salt Lake County. Pet lovers will also want to tune in to a Salt Lake City Council meeting on an ordinance classifying and setting restrictions on “dangerous” animals.

No Kill Utah Adoption Weekend
Friday, May 2-Sunday, May 4

Be a life-saver this weekend by swinging by the Best Friends Animal Society’s no-kill adoption event, featuring hundreds of doggies and kitties looking for a home. Adoption fees start at just $25 for a spayed or neutered pet. Volunteers are also needed to help out at this adoption extravaganza.

New Roots Farm Raising
Saturday, May 3

New Roots Farm is a partnership between the International Rescue Committee and Salt Lake County that offers refugees the chance to grow their own food and sow the seeds of success in their new homes. This weekend, help refugee families begin a productive season by donating garden tools, seeds and labor to the farm raising. After the work is done, hang out for refreshments and meet the refugee families that now call the Salt Lake Valley home.
New Roots Farm, 3060 S. Lester St., West Valley City, 801-883-8493, May 3, noon, for more info e-mail alexander.young@rescue.org

Salt Lake City Council
Tuesday, May 6

Pitbull and tiger owners take note: The Salt Lake City Council is holding a hearing to define “dangerous” animals that owners would be required to have a special permit to own, and “vicious” animals that would be prohibited completely. The proposed ordinance, among other changes, would also set restrictions on how long owners can tie up their dog during a 24-hour period.
Salt Lake City & County Building, 451 S. State, 801-535-7600, May 6, 7 p.m., SLCGov.com
