MURRAY, Utah -- The world's largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization is in town this weekend with an event where you can adopt a new friend at a discount.

The Humane Society of Utah is hosting the local stop of the North Shore Animal League's mobile Tour for Life, which includes stops in 40 cities in 25 states.

The event features activities like a bounce house and food trucks, in addition to the pet adoption opportunities. Various rescue societies were involved Saturday, including Course A’lure--an obstacle course for dogs.

“It’s for fun, it requires no training, it appeals to a dog’s natural instinct to chase, and we've been running Course A’lure since 2005,” said Cyndi Dowling. “Dogs just love it. Most of them take to it right away.”

North Shore Animal League is celebrating their fifteenth anniversary, so HSU is offering $15 off adoption fees for small breed dogs 7 months and older during the event, which runs until 7 p.m. Saturday and on Sunday from noon until 5 p.m. at the Humane Society in Murray, 4242 South 300 West.
