Looking for a four-legged member to add to your family?
This weekend, New Yorkers will have the chance to adopt more than 4,000 dogs and cats — young and old, large and small, mixed- and pure-breed, frisky and couch potatoes — the city’s biggest free adoption event ever.
Maddie’s® Pet Adoption Days will take place Saturday and Sunday, and remains totally free thanks to money from Maddie’s Fund, a California-based group that aims to empty shelters and put pets in loving homes.
While animals will be up for adoption in all five boroughs, a single “mega-event” will happen Saturday and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. outside the Petco Union Square, located between 17th and 19th streets.
All of the adoptable creatures are homeless, living in animal shelters or with rescue groups. They’ve all been spayed, neutered, micro-chipped and vaccinated.
See photos, below, of the dogs and cats among the adorable pets up for adoption.
