Bring a Furry Friend Home this Adoptapalooza

Get ready for the Mayor’s Alliance second Adoptapalooza this Sunday, September 12 in Washington Square Park. The event will feature over 100 adoptable pets, raffle prizes, mini-pet-makeovers, and more. The last Adoptapalooza held in May was a huge success with 75% of the shelter pets finding new homes that same day. A new addition to the event are breed specific groups featuring dogs from the Metropolitan Maltese Rescue and New Jersey Schnauzer Rescue Network. Go ahead and bring a furry friend home this Adoptapalooza!
