The Alliance for NYC’s Animals presents its annual Prospect Park Adoptapalooza, NYC’s first and original mega-pet adoption event. Featuring more than 150 lovable dogs and cats from more than a dozen different rescue organizations, it will be an afternoon of fun for the whole family. Event admission is free. Fees for pet adoptions vary by rescue organization. Adoptapalooza will also offer free personalized pet tag giveaways and free photos of pets and their people provided by the Mayor’s Alliance. Dog licenses for only $8.50 ($34 for animals that have not been spayed/neutered) will be available from the NYC Department of Health. Important information to help pet owners prepare for emergencies will be provided by New York Emergency Management (EM) / Ready New York. And for children or the young at heart, The Cheeky Chipmunk will do free face painting and temporary tattoos. Vetco, which provides wellness services for dogs and cats at Petco and Unleashed stores, will offer free microchipping for dogs and cats.
Note that cats should be in carriers when brought to the event, and dogs must be on a leash.
