Romeo is an energetic dog with lots of love to give. His favorite activities include playing with people, toys and other dogs. Oh—and belly rubs!
Romeo already knows Sit and Down, and would love to have you teach him more tricks. He would make a great family dog, and would fit in well with kids 10 and up. He’d like to go home with an adopter who has some dog experience. Adopt Romeo today!
Romeois available for adoption at the ASPCA Adoption Center. If you are interested in adopting please call our Adoptions department in New York City at (212) 876-7700, ext. 4900. To learn more about Romeo,please visit his page.
It’s time to meet your match, people—your four-legged match! Once again the ASPCA is teaming up with dozens of animal shelters across the country for the second-annual ASPCA Mega Match-a-thon! This weekend (October 18-20), nearly 40 animal rescues across the country are joining forces to co-host some epic adoption events. We threw down more than $278,000 in grants to help make it happen.
Last year’s Mega Match-a-thon saw more than 6,100 pets adopted in just one weekend! Can we top that number? Yes, we can!
So what can you do to help? So much! Check it out:
First, find out if there’s an adoption event near you this weekend by visiting your local shelter’s website.
Second, go to said event and adopt, adopt, adopt! You can also volunteer your time; shelters can always use an extra hand…or four.
And, finally, don’t forget to spread the word! Share this article on Facebook and Twitter and make sure everyone makes adoption their first option this weekend and every day of the year. Be sure to follow the hashtag #MegaMatchfor event details and updates of pets across America finding new homes!

In conjunction with Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, Ralph Lauren has collaborated with the ASPCA to create The Dog Walk, a short film featuring rescue dogs from the ASPCA and the designer's Fall 2013 accessories collection. The film takes you on a virtual dog walk through the streets of New York City and Paris, with a few fun surprises along the way.
From October 15 to November 15, 10 percent of the purchase price of select accessories and dog apparel* featured in the film will be donated to the ASPCA to support and raise awareness for shelter dog adoptions. We're pleased to announce that all of the shelter dogs who starred in the film have since found forever homes and are thriving with their new families!
