At the Best Friends Pet Super Adoption event held on Saturday, June 4th and to be held again today, Sunday, June 5th, there are a surprising number of small dogs in need of immediate adoption.
The little dogs’ breeds range from toy poodles (a 5lb toy poodle found a new home on Saturday) to a Japanese Chin, Pekenese, Chihuahuas and Yorkshire Terriers.Rescue groups traveled many miles to bring these dogs to the event (the poodles came from South Carolina seeking New York homes) so this is a rare opportunity to meet them in person.
The Best Friends Pet Super Adoption is taking place today, Sunday, June 5 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Westchester County Center, 198 Central Ave. White Plains, N.Y. (The Metro North White Plains station is a 10 minute walk to the County Center. Metro North welcomes dogs on the train and cats in carriers.)
All adopters will get a free family photo with their new pet, and a starter kit with tons of free goodies—dog food, cat food, kitty litter, and more. Dog trainers and veterinarians will be on hand for free consultations.
To adopt a pet, be sure to bring documentation such as your veterinarian’s contact information (if you have a pet or have had one before), a copy of your pet-friendly lease, check or cash for the adoption fee and anything else which will enable you to complete an adoption application. Some rescue groups are checking references right on the spot so your new pet can go home with you right away!
