What do you get when you hold an adoption event on St. Patrick's Day? Well, St. Pet-Rick's of course.

Salt Lake County Animal Services is holding their St. Pet-Ricks Adoption Event on March 16 and 17. At this event, you can adopt one of the many homeless animals for just $17.

Calista Pearson of SLCO Animal Services also filled us in on a few things pet owners should remember with the warmer weather. Firstly, it's actually against the law to not have your dog on a leash or to not pick up their poop. In fact, if you're caught doing either, you could receive a fine. Calista also encourages people to register your pet if you live anywhere in the Salt Lake Valley.
