Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 West 18th Street, NYC

What to expect:

Expect to have a lot of fun, and to meet a huge number of adorable, adoptable animals. Each participating rescue group and shelter at the event has its own adoption application, interview process and adoption fee structure. Adoption fees help cover costs such as spay/neuter, vaccinations and other medical needs. Please note that all participating shelters and many of the participating rescue groups offer same-day adoptions, but some groups require home checks as part of the application process. Potential adopters should come with:

1. All family members (human and canine) who will be living with the pet.

2. A valid form of identification.

3. Payment (please keep in mind that while adoption fees start at $25, each groups has their own individual fees that can range from $25 up to $400).

4. For renters, please bring a copy of your lease or letter from your landlord stating that you are allowed to have a pet.

We look forward to seeing you there! Together, we can Save Them All.
