More than 300 homeless dogs, cats, and rabbits — all available for adoption — will be waiting to meet you at Adoptapalooza, NYC’s original mega pet adoption event.
Hosted by the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals, and presented in partnership with the Petco Foundation, this event offers fun for the whole family!
In addition to pet adoptions, Adoptapalooza features: tricks and training tips from a certified Petco trainer on the dog training field; face painting and fun temporary tattoos for kids; dog licensing by the NYC Department of Health; free (for the first 50) and low-cost ($15) microchips for dogs and cats by Vetco; emergency preparedness information from Ready New York/NYC Emergency Management; free pet photos and pet ID tags; and giveaways from event sponsors. Rock & Rawhide, a non-profit organization that distributes donated supplies to shelters and rescue groups, will collect clean blankets, towels, and pet toys for shelter animals.
The great pets looking for new families at Adoptapalooza – all spayed/neutered and vaccinated – are presented for adoption by dozens of local shelters and rescue groups that participate in the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals.
