NYC's Original Mega Pet Adoption Event

AdoptapaloozaNYC.org

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

After finding homes for more than 17,000 animals at Adoptapalooza events over the past nine years, in 2019 we are passing the Adoptapalooza torch to Rock & Rawhide, an organization that we have worked with over the years to build the event into the tremendously successful pet adoption venue it has become. The Petco Foundation, whose generous sponsorship of the event has been critical to its success over the years, will again sponsor Adoptapalooza in 2019.

We invite you to join the fun and meet your next furry family member at the first Adoptapalooza of 2019 on Sunday, May 19!
