HSU Celebrates Grand Opening Of "Kitty City" On August 25th!

Everyone is invited to join our much anticipated celebration as the Humane Society of Utah holds the grand opening of “Kitty City,” at 10 a.m. Saturday August 25th. The debut of this safe haven for cats and kittens will give animal lovers their first chance to tour and enjoy one of the finest facilities for felines in the world! “This will be one of the most exciting and significant moments in the 52 year history of the Humane Society of Utah,” says HSU Executive Director Gene Baierschmidt. “Instead of steel cages, our cats will now live in beautiful rooms and enclosures where they can take cat naps, play with other cats and meet all the people who will want to come and experience “Kitty City” for themselves!” The HSU will mark the occasion with a $9 adoption fee during the grand opening...$9 for 9 lives! There will also be snow cones, popcorn, cotton candy and hot dogs ... along with a Hello Kitty bounce house and water slide for the kids!

“Kitty City” is truly a one-of-a kind facility that is the culmination of a dream! Hundreds of felines will frolic with cat lovers in beautifully decorated and spacious accommodations that feel like home! Light, bright, open & airy...”Kitty City” will provide an inviting setting that will encourage more people to visit the Humane Society of Utah, interact with our cats & consider adopting a homeless animal...all while providing a comfortable, enjoyable environment for the cats in our care! Special thanks to Pepsico and Sam’s Club for sponsoring this gala grand opening of “Kitty City.”
