4Friday — NKUT Super Adoption
Hundreds of our four-legged (and sometimes not), furry (and sometimes not) friends are waiting for an excellent home to play and pee in, to run amuck, to ruin our gardens and burn our lawns, to sleep on our heads and turn our bedsheets into fuzzy sweaters. Wait, are they honestly our friends? Oh hell yes they are!
Legacy Events Center, 151 S. 1100 West, Farmington, times vary through Saturday. Adoption fees start at $25
— Sage’s Spring Potluck

The group will provide non-alcoholic beverages and wine.
