Attention Animal-Loving New Yorkers: Mark Your Calendars for This Year's Adoptapalooza, Saturday, June 4!

New York, NY – Tuesday, April 26, 2011 – Adoptapalooza 2011 will take over Washington Square Park on Saturday, June 4, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. More than 100 cats and dogs for adoption will be on hand, hoping to find their new families at what promises to be the largest edition of Adoptapalooza yet!

Nearly a dozen animal shelters and rescue groups that participate in the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals will join in this fun-filled community event that not only celebrates animal adoptions but also promotes the joys of sharing your life with a pet.

This free event is open to the public and will feature an exciting program of activities and entertainment. Attendees will have the opportunity to talk to dog trainers, groomers, and other animal experts, as well as enjoy a great raffle, product giveaways, and hopefully will walk away with a furry new best friend.

About the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals®

The Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals, Inc., founded in 2002 and powered by Maddie's Fund®, The Pet Rescue Foundation, with support from the ASPCA, is a coalition of more than 150 animal rescue groups and shelters working with Animal Care & Control of NYC (AC&C) to end the killing of healthy and treatable cats and dogs at AC&C shelters. To achieve that goal, the Alliance, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, helps its Alliance Participating Organizations (APOs) work to their highest potential to increase pet adoptions and spay/neuter rates, with the goal of transforming New York City into a no-kill community by 2015.
