Why is that pit bull dressed like a pig? What's with the terrier in sheep's clothing?

Organizers thought dressing dogs up as lovable livestock would help draw attention to this weekend's Salt Lake Super Adoption, which this year has moved to the Utah State Fairpark where there is more space.

Each of the costumed dogs will be available for adoption through Salt Lake County Animal Services, a partner in the 13th annual event, which will feature more than 800 adoptable animals from 18 statewide shelters and rescue groups, according to a news release. Dogs, cats, puppies and kittens of every breed, mix, age, color and size will be there.

Hours for the super adoption are May 17 from noon to 7 p.m.; May 18 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and May 19 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at fairpark, 155 N. 1000 West, Salt Lake City.
