NYC's Original Mega Pet Adoption Event

Join the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals for Adoptapalooza, our signature pet adoption extravaganzas! These public events feature wonderful cats, dogs, and sometimes rabbits for adoption 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.
