On Saturday, May 31 and Sunday, June 1, more than 90 animal shelters and rescue groups in the area – including Sean Casey Animal Rescue – are participating in Maddie’s Pet Adoption Days, the largest free pet adoption event in America:
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.
Qualified adopters can bring home a new pet (like Dusty, the one-year-old shepherd mix above), and Maddie’s Fund will give that shelter or rescue group a certain amount of money — if you adopt an older pet, or one that has had care for a treatable medical condition, the organization will receive more money from the fund.
You can stop by the shelter at 153 E 3rd Street between Fort Hamilton Parkway and Caton Avenue — or their new Sunset Park shelter at 551 39th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues — this weekend, both from 11am-7pm, to meet a potential new friend.
