Maddie's® Pet Adoption Days Coming to NYC area
June 1 & 2, 2013
Thousands of cats and dogs will be available for adoption for FREE from more than 50 Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals rescue groups and shelters!
Maddie's® Pet Adoption Days, the biggest free pet adoption event in America, is going national in 2013, and the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals is leading the charge in New York City! We want to place hundreds of dogs and cats in qualified forever homes on June 1 & 2. Free adoptions will be offered throughout the weekend at participating shelters and other adoption locations, and at two large, outdoor adoption events in Manhattan.
Why Free Pet Adoptions?
Maddie's® Pet Adoption Days is helping rescue organizations in New York City to find homes for more animals, including senior animals and those with treatable medical conditions — all of whom can make wonderful companions. The goal of Maddie's® Pet Adoption Days is to give all healthy, senior, and treatable shelter dogs and cats a second chance. The event also will help rescue organizations financially, thereby allowing them to save even more lives.
How Does It Work?
Adoptions of dogs and cats will be free to qualified adopters. Maddie's Fund will pay organizations $500 for each adoption of a young and healthy animal, $1,000 for each adoption involving a dog or cat who is 7 years of age or older or who has been treated for one or more treatable medical conditions, and $2,000 for each adoption involving a dog or cat who is 7 years of age or older and who has been treated with one or more treatable medical conditions.
