More than 300 wonderful dogs, cats and bunnies — all of whom are available for adoption – will be waiting to meet you at Adoptapalooza — NYC’s original mega adoption event.
Hosted by the Alliance for NYC’s Animals, in partnership with the Petco Foundation, this event offers fun for the whole family, including face painting and fun temporary tattoos for children; and free photos of you and your pet.
Low-cost ($15) microchipping for cats and dogs will be offered by Vetco; dog licensing will be offered by the NYC Department of Health for only $8.50 ($34 for dogs who have not been spayed/neutered); free pet ID tags, and information about how pet owners can prepare for emergencies.
Throughout the afternoon, pet food giveaways and Petco training sessions for dogs will also take place. Rock and Rawhide, a non-profit organization that distributes donated supplies to shelters and rescue groups, will collect clean blankets, sheets and pet toys for shelter animals.
Admission is free; adoption prices vary.
