At the event, rescues get to shine with a walk down a red carpet and they certainly seemed to enjoy the attention. They obviously also enjoyed all the hugs and kisses they received from adults and children in the park.
Neighborhood pet owners also came out in force to show their support and to take advantage of the free photo booth sponsored by Mobile Mutts, dog training advice by Rob Haussman of Dogboy, and to communicate with their pouch with a pet reading by animal talker Sue Pike.
Thank you to Sugar Mutts, Animal Care And Control of NYCASPCA, Second Chance Rescue NYC, Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue, and Ready For Rescue for all the hard work. A special shout out also to all the volunteers who foster and take such good care of these lovely animals.
And a big round of applause to Marion Fiore, who organized the event.
If you adopted a cat or dog at yesterday Bark Avenue adopt-a-thon, please keep us informed on how things are going and consider sending PMFA a photo of your new pet.
Marion Fiore sent us the names of the dogs that fund a home as a result of the event:
Emmy -, the Chiwawa
Gambino - Aka Crook - a Shepard mix with a broken jaw
Cricket & Sprout - mom and son cheweenies
Ms. Piggy - a terrier mix
