Maddie's Pet Adoption Days - New York CityMaddie's® Pet Adoption Days in the News

In 2013 and 2014, the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals hosted Maddie's® Pet Adoption Days in New York City. This national event, sponsored by Maddie's Fund and billed as the largest free pet adoption event in America, resulted in more than 8,500 adoptions by participating organizations in the NYC area. The Alliance and all the groups that participated in the events are grateful to Maddie's Fund for sharing Maddie's Pet Adoption Days with us and for helping to find new homes for so many Little New Yorkers.
