NYC’s largest FREE pet adoption event is this weekend. On Saturday and Sunday, June 1 and June 2, thousands of dogs and cats, puppies and kittens will be looking for permanent homes in NYC and the tri-state area. The Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals is hosting Maddie’s Pet Adoption Days at dozens of adoption locations, including shelters, pet supply stores, and rescue groups’ locations throughout the five boroughs and metro area, as well as at two special mega-adoption events — outside Petco stores at 92nd & Broadway on Saturday, and at the Petco in Union Square on Sunday.
These are all homeless pets from more than 50 area shelters and rescue groups, and each one has been spayed, neutered and vaccinated, and most have been microchipped. Every adoption is FREE to qualified adopters, thanks to funding from California-based Maddie’s Fund, a family foundation established in 1999 to help fund a program of no-kill abandoned pets.
