Adopted Pets To Set Guinness World Record: October 4th in Central Park

The celebration in New York City begins on Tuesday, October 4, when Petco invites adopted pets and their pet parents to attend the National Adoption Reunion event in Central Park and help set the Guinness World Record for the “Largest Gathering of Adopted Shelter Animals” in one location. The record to beat is 250 adopted pets.

The event, co-hosted by Sony and featuring a free concert by Sony recording artist Gavin DeGraw, will take place between 4:00 and 6:30 p.m. at the Naumburg Bandshell, near the East 72nd Street entrance to Central Park.

To participate in the Guinness World Record bid*, adopters must bring proof of pet adoption, such as their adoption agreement. Dogs must be on a secure leash at all times. If you bring a cat, rabbit, or other pet to the event, be sure your pet remains inside a secure carrier for the entire event. All pets should wear proper identification. Check-in begins at 4:00 p.m. at the bandshell, and the record-setting begins at 5:00 p.m.

Several Alliance Participating Organizations will be on-hand with dogs for adoption, so if you’re thinking about adding another furry member to your family, now might be the time! Sony will offer a special “Photo Experience” area where pets and pet parents can have their picture taken and learn how to take the perfect pet photo.

Petco’s National Adoption Reunion celebration continues on the weekend of Saturday and Sunday, October 8 and 9. Adopters are invited to come to a Petco . . . → Read More: Adopted Pets To Set Guinness World Record: October 4th in Central Park
