NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals invites you to meet your newest four-legged family member at the second “Adoptapalooza” on Sunday, September 12th from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Washington Square Park.

Cats and dogs are available for adoption from Animal Care & Control of NYC, Animal Haven, Bideawee, PET-I-CARE NYC Adoption Program, Picasso Veterinary Fund, Sean Casey Animal Rescue, and pure breed rescue groups — including Metropolitan Maltese Rescue and New Jersey Schnauzer Rescue Network.

Mobile adoption units are being provided by the North Shore Animal League.

“This Adoptapalooza is sponsored by People Magazine’s special website for pet lovers called People Pets, according to Jane Hoffman, President of the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals, “and they’re going to have lots of fun activities for families, including a photo booth, raffle prizes, and gift bags for new pet parents who adopt that day”.

The event will also feature a doggie fashion show, presented by students at FIT and a special fund raising exhibit titled “Art Dogs and Cats of New York”.
