If you're looking to find your forever kitty or dog pal, there's no better time than the weekend of June 1-2. That's because, for the first time, Maddie's Pet Adoption Days is coming to NYC!
Maddie's Pet Adoption Day, the biggest free pet adoption event in America, is going national this year and the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals is leading the charge in New York City!
In return, Maddie's Fund has set aside $4 million so that it can give each shelter or rescue group $500 - $2,000 per adoption.
Since then, Dave and Cheryl have endowed Maddie's Fund with more than $300 million to help shelter cats and dogs find new, loving homes.
Maddie's Fund expanded this year's event to include adoption sites across the U.S. because of the continued success of Maddie's Pet Adoption Days on a local level. Every year, the number of adoptions has increased with a total of 6,722 dogs and cats adopted during the event's three-year history.This year, the hope is to adopt 5,000 animals during the two-day event by expanding the geographical boundaries to reach 11 million more people.
