Maddie’s® Pet Adoption Days is happening again June 1st and June 2nd in New York City, and you can adopt a free dog (or cat). How does it work? Well 30 rescue organizations and shelters will be on hand with dogs and cats and for every adoption, the rescue organization or shelter gets paid by Maddie’s Fund (they get $500 for young and healthy animals and $1000 for older (7+) cats/dogs or those that were treated for a medical condition, or $2000 for older cats/dogs that ALSO were treated for a medical condition in their past. So you get to adopt for free, the shelter gets some funding for each adoption so they can continue their good work, and the animal gets a new home!
Here are the locations:
Saturday, June 1st: Petco at 2475 Broadway (92nd/Broadway) from 11 a.m.–5 p.m.
Sunday, June 2nd: Petco at Union Square 860 Broadway (between 17th and 18th Streets) from noon-5pm.
