Adoptapalooza Union Square - Sunday, April 10, 2016Adoptapalooza

NYC's Original Mega Pet Adoption Event

www.AdoptapaloozaNYC.org

Join the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals for Adoptapalooza, NYC's original mega pet adoption event! These free, public pet adoption extravaganzas feature wonderful cats, dogs, and sometimes rabbits from dozens of Alliance Participating Organizations. 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.

The Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals, in partnership with the Petco Foundation, the ASPCA, and Animal Planet, is celebrating the ASPCA's 150th Anniversary at a very special Adoptapalooza on April 10, 2016! This celebration includes our mega pet adoption event in Union Square Park, along with a parade on Broadway, plus an additional adoption event at House of Vans in Brooklyn. Adoption fees will be covered by Animal Planet!
