Considering getting a dog or a cat? Have you been browsing /r/aww obsessively? This Saturday is your chance to find a cute companion at the Prospect Park Adoptapalooza. The Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals will show off more than 150 dogs, cats, kittens, and puppies which you can adopt right on the spot. There are also free activities and giveaways at the event even if you’re not yet ready for a furry friend.
In addition to free cuddles, Adoptapalooza will feature advice on pet care, training, and grooming. You can also find free food samples, 30 days of free pet insurance, free ID tags, and of course, a photo booth so you can post your new fuzzy buddy to Facebook. On the fence? Come on by anyway and get some advice. Maybe you can help ease the burden on the city shelters overrun with homeless kitties.
Your future pets can be found from 11am to 5pm on Saturday, rain or shine, at Bartel-Pritchard Square (Prospect Park Southwest and 15th Street).
