catIf you’re thinking of adopting a dog or cat, this weekend is a great time to do it. New York City shelters and rescue groups are offering free adoptions as part of the Maddie’s Pet Adoption Days.

From the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals:

Thousands of cats and dogs will be available for FREE adoption from more than 90 New York City area rescue groups and shelters!

May 31 & June 1, 2014

Maddie’s® Pet Adoption Days, the biggest free pet adoption event in America, is back this year, and the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals is again leading the charge in New York City! We want to place thousands of dogs and cats in qualified forever homes on May 31 & June 1, 2014. Free adoptions will be offered throughout the weekend at participating shelters and other adoption locations, and at two large, outdoor adoption events in Union Square, Manhattan.

Why Free Pet Adoptions?

Maddie’s® Pet Adoption Days is helping rescue organizations in New York City and other communities around the country 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.

See the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals for more information about Maddie’s® Pet Adoption Days in NYC. And remember, after you adopt your new buddy, Katie’s Kitty Pet Sitting is available when you need us!
