New Yorkers lend dogs, cats a paw in finding a home
September 1, 2017
New Yorkers celebrated National Dog Day in Manhattan by bringing home furry friends of their own. Gotham West, the luxury residential building, worked with the North Shore Animal League America to bring 20 dogs and cats so people could adopt them on the spot.
Residents gave two paws up to the building for being so pet-friendly.
“Everyone in that building, it’s like, let’s say 50 percent of the people have dogs,” one man said. “So if you’re getting in the elevator and you don’t have dogs, you’re kind of like, not cool.”
“I couldn’t find an apartment where I could go with a dog. It was very, very hard,” another attendee said. “And now this, this is the perfect place.”
