On Saturday, May 31 and Sunday, June 1, more than 90 animal shelters and rescue groups in the area are participating in Maddie’s Pet Adoption Days, the largest free pet adoption event in America:
The goal of Maddie’s Pet Adoption Days is to give all healthy, senior, and treatable shelter dogs and cats a second chance. The event also will help rescue organizations financially, thereby allowing them to save even more lives.
Qualified adopters can bring home a new pet, and Maddie’s Fund will give that shelter or rescue group a certain amount of money — if you adopt an older pet, or one that has had care for a treatable medical condition, the organization will receive more money from the fund.
You’ll find pets available for adoption with a few rescue organizations at these local spots:
- For Animals will be at NYCPets, 218 5th Avenue, Saturday & Sunday, 12-5pm
- Brooklyn Animal Action will be at Unleashed by Petco, 81 7th Avenue, Saturday, 12-5pm
- K9Kastle will be at Unleashed by Petco, 81 7th Avenue, Sunday, 12-4:30pm
You can also stop by the Sean Casey Animal Rescue shelter at 153 E 3rd Street between Fort Hamilton Parkway and Caton Avenue, or their new Sunset Park shelter at 551 39th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues, this weekend, both from 11am-7pm, to meet a potential new friend.
