Pet Adoption at Designer's West Village Store

On November 21, designer, John Bartlett, opened his doors to the North Shore Animal League's adoption bus. New Yorkers walking by his West Village store were captivated by the wagging tails of the animals anxiously awaiting their new families.
John Bartlett has been known to have up to ten pet adoptions in one day when he holds these events. Bartlett adopted his dogs from the shelter at NSAL and fell in love! The silhouette of his dog, Tiny Tim, whom he rescued in 2002 after he had been hit by a car, is featured as his shop logo.
It's becoming more and more important to get the world out about pet adoption, as an effort to put an end the cruel treatment of animals at puppy mills. If you would like to adopt a pet, contact your local shelter or research the pet shop you are buying from before you, in turn, support a puppy mill. And if you would like to help find homes for animals in need, host a pet adoption event!
