On Adoptapalooza day, Wink “was looking for a best friend, and I knew it would be me.” Ryan, Wink’s happy adopter, also noted Wink was “very friendly and playful…his signature one eye did not faze him one bit and you could tell he was loving life, ready to be adopted.”

Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals partner rescue group, Louie’s Legacy, took over Wink’s care after a Good Samaritan found him on a roadside with an injured eye (which was later removed). Thanks to Louie’s Legacy and Adoptapalooza, Wink found a forever friend in Ryan, who says he always wanted a dog and is new to animal adoption.

“I have friends who rescued their pets, and you could tell there was something special about it. We already have a strong connection and I am happy to have Wink as my new best friend.”

In celebration of Wink and every other dog, cat, and rabbit who found a brand-new forever family at Adoptapalooza, please join our campaign to support the Alliance and our signature Adoption Events. Together we can continue saving lives and serving our dedicated community partners with events that shine a light on the importance of adoption and connect NYC’s homeless animals with their future adopters.
