I stopped into a Best Friends adoption event just now, at 22 Little West 12th Street. It’s going on until 7pm tonight, and tomorrow at I’m guessing the same time, 11am – 7pm. You can adopt a pet at the rock bottom cost of $10. Whenever a pet was adopted they’d make a big deal about it, with lots of hooping and hollering and ringing of bells. Wait, why do we call it hooping? It’s more like whooping and woo-hooing.
Here is a shot of a dog who was adopted while I was there. That woman sobbing was a Best Friends worker (or volunteer). I’m sure she must be very happy for the dog. But maybe she’s also going to miss him?
