Maddie's "Adopt Me" Vests
Orange "Adopt Me" vests have proven to be a great tool for identifying adoptable animals. Many animal shelters and rescue organizations deck out their adoptable dogs when walking them in public or showing them at adoption events. Foster people slip them onto their foster dogs when walking them in the park. A vest signals to potential adopters that the dog is available for adoption, or simply prompts a conversation that leads a potential adopter to a nearby shelter or rescue group.
Dogbooties.com produces the "Adopt Me" vests used by the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals and its numerous member organizations. These vests feature the Maddie's Fund logo (pictured above). Two sizes are available to Alliance Participating Organizations — large and medium. Most dogs can be outfitted in one of these two sizes.
The large vests are 18 inches wide, with a 23-inch Velcro strap. This size fits a girth of up to 40 inches.
The medium vests are 11 inches wide, with an 18-inch Velcro strap. It fits a girth of up to 28 inches.
Alliance Participating Organizations can receive large or medium-sized "Adopt Me" vests featuring the Maddie's Fund logo at no charge. To request the vests, please contact the Mayor's Alliance at info@AnimalAllianceNYC.org.
