Dog Adoption: Mayor’s Alliance For New York Organizes Adoptapalooza – Huffington Post

Earlier this month, the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals organized “Adoptapalooza” – a day focused on pet adoption, featuring over 100 dogs and cats needing a home.

The Mayor’s Alliance is a coalition of over 150 animal rescue groups and shelters that work to end the killing of cats and dogs at Animal Care & Control shelters — their aim is to make New York City a no-kill community by 2015. To achieve this goal, they focus on boosting pet adoptions while improving spay/neuter rates and enforcing responsible pet ownership.

As Diane Gauld from the Mayor’s Alliance says, “We can’t adopt our way out of this. We have to cut down on the number of animals being born without a home.”
