NYC's Original Mega Pet Adoption Event

Several times each year since 2010, the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals proudly presented Adoptapalooza — its signature pet adoption extravaganza — in Union Square Park and other locations in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens. These public events featured wonderful cats, dogs, and rabbits for adoption from dozens of NYC-area animal shelters and rescue groups. Each Adoptapalooza also featured additional activities, including advice on pet care, training, and grooming; product giveaways; microchipping; dog licensing; pet photographers; dog performances; and other fun activities for the whole family — two- and four-legged alike.

After finding homes for more than 17,000 animals at Adoptapalooza events since 2010, in 2019 we transferred Adoptapalooza to Rock & Rawhide, an organization that we worked with over the years to build the event into the tremendously successful pet adoption venue it became. The Petco Foundation's generous sponsorship of the event was critical to its success over the years.
