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!
