Join the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals for Adoptapalooza, our signature pet adoption extravaganzas!

Each Adoptapalooza features additional activities, which might include advice on pet care, training, and grooming; product giveaways; microchipping; dog licensing; pet photographers; dog performances; or other fun activities for the whole family — two- and four-legged alike.
