(Staten Island, NY) " On June 1st and June 2nd, thousands of dogs and cats will be looking for their forever homes at New York City’s biggest pet adoption event ever " all for free. The Alliance for NYC’s Animals will host “Maddie’s Pet Adoption Days” at locations in Staten Island, as well as at locations across the other boroughs.
Homeless dogs and cats " young and old, large and small, mixed and pure breeds, frisky and couch potatoes " will be presented for adoption citywide by more than 50 area shelters and rescue groups. While many have had a rough start, they all have lots of love to give and all need permanent, loving homes. All of the adoptable pets have been spayed, neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated.
All adoptions will be free of charge thanks to generous funding from California-based Maddie’s Fund® (www.maddiesfund.org)– a family foundation, established in 1999 to help fund the creation of a no-kill nation.
Among the featured adoption locations in Staten Island are:
- Saturday, June 1st and Sunday, June 2nd: Animal Care & Control Staten Island Animal Care Center, 3139 Veterans Road West, Staten Island, NY 10309
- Saturday, June 1st and Sunday, June 2nd: Louie’s Legacy Animal Rescue, Saturday – Petco, 2795 Richmond Avenue, Staten Island, NY 10314. Sunday – PetSmart, 1520 Forest Avenue, Staten Island, NY 10302

Receiving no government funding, we are supported by donations from foundations, corporations, and individuals.
