It’s Alumni Monday! Today we’re showing off some of our Badass Allumni in their Halloween costumes. And since it was impossible to pick a favorite, or five, we’ll be posting throughout the day, our own “virtual Halloween” parade of Badass pups.
From top: Alvin Ailey and his mama as matching tacos, Scarlett is on trend dressed as a Cronut, and big, beautiful Greta dressed as a ladybug in what we can only assume is a costume for an 8 year-old child
America, I love this dog. Adopt Adelaide!
Badass public service announcement: THIS is a dog people should be fighting over. Adelaide’s a true beauty, inside and out. She gets along with everybody - cats, dogs, and people of all ages and sizes. She’s housebroken, cratetrained, mellow and affectionate at home, but never annoying; playful and fun outside; and a favorite at the dog park. She’s got a chill and loyal energy and everyone who’s had the pleasure of fostering or just hanging out with her wants to know why she hasn’t been snatched up yet! If you or someone you know has been looking for a GREAT dog, head on over to our website and submit an application for Adelaide!

You guys. This photo.
Do not miss our adoption event on Saturday, October 26th. It’s Howl-a-Ween and our dogs will be in costume! Some of them! If they don’t pull them off first! Come by and meet dogs like Laverne!
Laverne de Fazio is an approximately 6 month-old brindle mixed breed from North Carolina. She landed in a kill shelter with Shirley, who we believe is her sister. Laverne can be a bit shy, so she spent her first adoption event in Brooklyn snuggled up with a caring volunteer.
If you are interested in adopting Laverne, please visit our website to fill out an adoption application.

Adoption event today! Join us out in front of NYC Pet on Driggs Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, Today, Saturday October 19th from 12pm - 2pm. Come by and meet some fantastic dogs, including Diana Nyad, above.
Diana Nyad is an approximately 8 to 9 month old lab mix originally from North Carolina. We’re actually not sure if she’s true to breed and likes to swim, but we couldn’t think of anyone more Badass than Ms. Nyad! Diana is a team player; she’s great with other doggies and loves to give kisses. She’s enthusiastic about life after surviving a high kill shelter and will make a great companion for somebody looking for a happy, adventurous companion.
If you are interested in adopting Diana, you can fill out an adoption application at our event, or get a head start on the process by completing an application online.

Christy Turlington Update! Christy is not in Brooklyn and charming the pants off of everyone. Her foster reports that despite her string of bad luck, she’s just a “happy baby doll.”
Christy was run over by a truck in July in her native Alabama. She underwent initial trauma treatment down south and was working her way through rehab in foster care. But we rushed her up here to see our specialist last week when she started showing signs of elimination troubles. And sure enough, she needs medical intervention to clear the path so to speak. Due to the hip fractures sustained in the accident, her left hip has shifted into her birth canal. Simply put, there’s not enough room for her poop to get through! Yesterday, the good doctor performed a hemipelvectomy to remove part of her pelvis and restore the normal order. This is a difficult and complex surgery, so please keep continue to keep sweet Christy in your thoughts! We’re still accepting donations for her medical care, and we’re in sight of our goal. If you can contribute, please visit the YouCaring page.
Christy Turlington need’s a little help with her pooper. Can you help?
