Calendar of NYC Animal Events

Featured Alliance Events

The Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals sponsors or co-sponsors several large adoption events each year, all with the common goal of finding homes for New York City's homeless cats, dogs, and rabbits. In addition to offering pet adoptions, some of these events also feature low-cost microchipping, dog licensing, and other services that promote responsible pet ownership. All of these events are family-friendly and fun!

Pet Adoption Events Calendar

These pet adoption events, held by Alliance Participating Organizations (APOs) at locations in and near New York City, offer an excellent opportunity for you to meet and adopt your next companion animal — that is, your new best friend!.

Low-Cost Spay/Neuter & Microchipping Events Calendar

Think spaying or neutering your pet is too expensive? Think again! Low-cost dog and cat spay/neuter surgeries are available at special spay/neuter events in New York City.

Having your pets microchipped is one of the best ways to increase the chance that, if your pet becomes lost or stolen and winds up at an animal shelter or veterinary office, he or she can be returned to you. The Mayor's Alliance offers low-cost microchipping clinics at a variety of events throughout the year.

Fun, Friend & Fundraising Events Calendar

There is never a dull moment on the New York City animal events calendar! Meet other pet lovers while helping to raise much-needed funds, supplies, and awareness for important animal rescue and advocacy programs.

Whether you're looking for a swanky gala benefit, casual gathering of pet lovers in the park, luxury boat cruise, musical concert, comedy performance, dance party, film screening, marathon or walk, family bowling day, convention or fair, flea market or yard sale, boutique shopping day, pet fashion show, cage comforter sewing day, or other animal-related fun, these events sponsored by APOs and other New York City animal rescue and advocacy groups should not be missed!
