First, Adoptapalooza on Saturday, June 4th featured over 100 cats and dogs for adoption. Fox News reports on the event here and Metromix New York has some great photos (including photo above). Metromix wrote:
Adoptapalooza is held regularly under the arch of Washington Square Park, celebrated with a day full of dog agility demonstrations, pet training, face-painting and photo ops.
This year over 100 adoptable dogs and cats were on hand to turn our hearts to mush and lick our faces clean off. There were mutts and pit bull mixes, papillons, beagles, puggles, chugs (chihuahua pugs, for the uninitiated), kittens and cats galore from shelters across the city. We wanted to take them all home with us! Trust us: one look at these faces and you will feel the same way!
TreeHugger has a great piece on what went on at the park when the World Science Festival, a five day event (which sounds fantastic), came to the park on Sunday, its last day, utilizing the new “stage” and surrounding area.
