The ASPCA and Megan Massacre Team Up for “Tats ‘N’ Tails V” Adoption Event

This Sunday, April 8, the ASPCA is partnering once again with New York City tattoo artist and television personality Megan Massacre for our fifth “Tats ‘N’ Tails” art and adoption event. The festivities begin at noon and will feature adoptable cats and dogs from the ASPCA Adoption Center (from 1:00-5:00 P.M.), a photo booth, prize giveaways and the opportunity to get tattooed by Megan herself. Megan is offering a variety of custom animal-themed tattoos available for $100, and she will generously donate 100% of the profits to the ASPCA. Those who adopt will also be given a t-shirt and entered to win a $1,000 tattoo session with Megan. T-shirts will also be available for purchase on gritnglory.com, and all of the proceeds will go to the ASPCA.

Above are some of the fun tattoo designs Megan will have available at the event.

The event will take place at Megan’s tattoo shop and lifestyle boutique, Grit N Glory, which is located at 186 Orchard Street in New York City’s Lower East Side neighborhood.

While Megan is best known for appearing on popular shows such as NY Ink and America’s Worst Tattoos, she has another passion­—giving back to animals in need. Since the first Tats ‘N’ Tails event in 2016, Megan and the Grit N Glory team have raised more than $19,000 for the ASPCA, and 24 animals have been adopted at the previous four events. “As an animal lover and adopter, collaborating with the ASPCA and using my influence and talent to help get animals adopted is the biggest reward,” says Megan. “I’m thrilled with the success we’ve seen from these events, and I hope our fifth Tats ‘N’ Tails inspires others to adopt and contribute to this amazing cause.”

“The ASPCA is excited to collaborate with Megan and her studio for the fifth time on this fun, one-of-a-kind event,” says Eileen Hanavan, Senior Manager, Offsite Adoption and Foster Programs for the ASPCA. “Mobile adoption events like Tats ‘N’ Tails make adoption more accessible to the general public, helping more shelter animals find safe and loving homes. We are grateful Megan continues to lend her voice to promote animal adoption in New York City.” 

Don’t miss out on this chance to show your love for animals—and maybe even meet your newest furry family member!
