Our Favorite Photos from the All for Love Adoption Rally in NYC

News & Events

On Sunday, March 25, animal lovers convened in NYC’s Union Square Park for the All for Love Adoption Rally, hosted by Petco Foundation (in partnership with MUTTS, WholeHearted Pets, and Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals).

The rally, which was part of Petco Foundation’s month-long “Love Changes Everything” campaign, featured adoptable animals from 20+ animal welfare organizations. It also included fun activities for animal lovers of all ages, including opportunities to take photos with Patrick McDonnell and his MUTTS characters Mooch and Earl.

At the event, Petco Foundation unveiled a huge photo mosaic in which more than 30,000 photos of adopted animals and their people were arranged to form artwork from the MUTTS comic strip. Radio and web show host Susan Richards commentated as Patrick placed the final photo: an image of himself with the original Earl.

The event was a remarkable success. In fact, many of the animal welfare organizations in attendance found forever homes for ALL of the animals they brought to the rally!

Here are a few of our favorite photos of the event.

We’re so proud to be included in the @petcofoundation mural of adopted pet love! We got to visit with a bunch of our favorite rescues and we even dragged a stranger who came up to us to inquire about Clem’s breed to the @fosterdogs booth. 😂💁🏻‍♀️ We hope many happily ever afters started today! • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #rescuedog #thaidog #mixedbreed #pawsome #petscorner #dogsofnewyork #dogsofnyc #dogsofbrooklyn #instacute #muttsofinstagram #adoptdontshop #rescuedogsrock #adoptedpup #liveyourbestlife #rescuedogsofinstagram #thatsdarling #pupstagram #nyclife #brooklyn #brooklyngirl #adoptionevent #adopted #adopteddog #petco #petcofoundation #hoodieseason #nycevents #happygirl
