For a third consecutive year, Bohemia Realty Group, the leading real estate brokerage in Upper Manhattan and the Bronx is hosting its popular Annual Howl-o-Ween Pet Adopt-athon on Saturday, October 29, Noon to 4 p.m., in front of its offices at 2101 Frederick Douglass Blvd, between 113th and 114th Streets. Working in partnership with bide-a-wee and The Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals, it is the sixth pet adoption event that Bohemia Realty Group has sponsored over the past few years, all of which have been overwhelmingly successful in arranging permanent homes for former shelter dogs and cats.
Finding great homes is what we’re known for, so it’s not such a stretch for us to do the same for our canine and feline friends,” says Sarah Saltzberg, co-founder of Bohemia Realty Group. “These events also highlight the fact that so many buildings in Harlem and Upper Manhattan continue to be pet-friendly. For our team, it’s especially gratifying when our buyers and renters come to these pet adopt-a-thons and go back to their new homes with a lucky dog or cat.”
At the four-hour event, several dogs and cats will be available for immediate adoption. Joining the group will be several dog trainers and pet daycare service providers from a host of Harlem-based businesses, including Doggedly Devoted, Paw Prints of Harlem, Harlem Doggie Day Spa and Nirvana Tails. Crowd favorite Face Painting by The Cheeky Chipmunk will also be at the event again with facial artistry for children and adults. As always, there will be complimentary product samples and other gift items.
“It’s especially fun when people come in costume and take selfies with the dogs and cats for social media to help more of them find homes and build awareness,” adds Saltzberg. “It’s a win-win for everyone!”
