Beginning on Friday, December 12 and continuing on until Sunday, December 14, New York’s Best Friends Animal Society will be holding the first event of its kind in the city, the New York City Super Adoption event.

The Animal Society is bringing together over 800 dogs, cats and rabbits for people to choose from to bring home and make a part of their families. The animals will all be mustered together at the Brooklyn EXPO Center at 70 Franklin Street in Greenpoint.

Not only will some adorable four-legged mammals be on hand, but some mammals of the two-legged variety will also be in attendance to enhance the festive atmosphere which will be present at the adoption event. Visitors can expect to see Edie Falco, Bernadette Peters, Emma Kenny (“Shameless”), Amir Arison (“The Blacklist”), David Mazouz (“Gotham”), John Doman (“Gotham”), Jake Robinson (“Odyssey”), and Nate Mooney (“Odyssey”), and let’s not forget Santa along with Marnie the dog.

Visitors, who will not be asked to pay any entrance fee, will be regaled with music, local food trucks and a pet gift fair. Prizes will be awarded throughout the weekend. Adoption fees will begin as low as $25. The Super Adoption event begins at 11am each day, and continues until 7pm each night, except for Sunday when the party closes at 4pm.
