Not only is this year the sixth anniversary of our Sugar House Lifesaving Center, but it’s also Best Friends Animal Sanctuary’s 35th anniversary. So, from July 26–29 we invite you to stop in to celebrate two special occasions and meet some adorable cats and dogs.



Sundance Institute Free Summer Screening: RBG

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s vigorous dissenting opinions and ferocious 20-push-up workouts have earned this tiny, soft-spoken intellectual giant the status of rock star and the title “Notorious RBG.” Intent on systematically releasing women from second-class status, she argued six pivotal gender-bias cases in the 1970s before an all-male Supreme Court blind to sexism. RBG tells the electric story of Ginsburg’s consuming love affairs with both the Constitution and her beloved husband Marty—and of a life’s work that led her to become an icon of justice in the highest court in the land. Activities start at 7:30 p.m. Register to vote, visit information booths for local organizations supporting activism for voters' and women’s rights, and purchase a sweet treat from Waffle Love on site! Parking is limited; please walk, bike, or take public transit. In the event of inclement weather, the screening will be moved to The Ray Theatre, 1768 Park Ave, Park City
