City Pulse

By Allison Warenik-Queenan


Don’t forget with all of the fashion shows, shopping events and parties happening this weekend that there are still many amazing animals out there who are looking for a home. Once again, The Mayor’s Alliance For NYC Animals is holding their second Adoptapalooza festival in Washington Square Park, this Sunday, September 12th from 11am-4pm. There will be pure breed and mixed breed dogs and cats from shelters and animal rescue groups around the area, including New York City Animal Care & Control, Bideawee and the North Shore Animal League.

In addition to finding yourself a perfect new friend, there will be raffles and drawings all day. You can enter to win 2 nights for you and your pooch at the new NYC Kimpton Hotel in North Chelsea, Eventi. There will be demonstrations from trainers, question and answer session with veterinarians, a pet fashion show at 1pm (because why should only models walk the catwalk this weekend?), a pet art exhibit, pet massages and many, many more things going on. So even if you are a pet owner with a full house, this is an event you definitely should not miss out on.

Go to to find out more information on adoption events happening at Adoptapalooza throughout the day on Sunday. Bring all of your pet-less friends and family members along and let them see for themselves what they are missing out on!
