Madison Avenue Welcome Back Saturdays, Shop with Your Dog Day, September 25, To Benefit The Humane Society of New York

August 17th, 2021   

The Madison Avenue B.I.D. will host its 2nd annual WELCOME BACK SATURDAYS on September 18 and 25. The welcome mat is out on the 29-blocks of Madison Avenue between 57th and 86th Streets. It’s time to celebrate in style, and the public is invited to spend these two special Saturdays on Madison Avenue.

Dogs are being welcomed back, too. Madison Avenue invites the public to “shop with your dog” on September 25 to benefit The Humane Society of New York, who will provide free pet-related programming throughout the day, including talks & tips by veterinarians, meeting pets available for adoption, pet portraiture and other activities. Participating stores will have their specially designed water bowls out to welcome the dogs as well.  Please scroll down this post to find further details and a schedule of dog-friendly events.

Shop With Your Dog Day, Saturday, September 25
Benefiting the Humane Society of New York

We are honored to support the compassionate and devoted work of our Upper East Side neighbors at The Humane Society of New York. With over sixty flagship boutiques offering shopping with your dog, this event represents an important milestone in making New York a dog-friendly city. While visiting Madison Avenue stores, dog owners (and dog fans) will meet not only veterinary and dog-care experts, but have the opportunity to have their dog sketched or photographed as a keepsake of Welcome Back Saturdays.

Event guests must maintain possession and control of their dogs at all times, and dogs must be housebroken to enter participating stores.
