JEAN SHAFIROFF & SPCA HOST PETS FOR METS FETE
ANIMAL ACTIVISTS CELEBRATE AMAZING METS
Animal rights activist and philanthropist Jean Shafiroff, along with the SPCA and Rescue Dogs Rock NYC hosted the first New York Mets, World Series "Puppy Parade" ever held in Manhattan featuring rescue and shelter dogs wearing New York Mets pet uniforms, at Shelter Chic located at 79 Chambers St. (near Broadway) in New York City. As the Mets prepare to open the World Series against the Kansas City Royals tonight, a full lineup of Amazin’ animals trotted along city sidewalks with pride, hoping to find a new home while rooting for their hometown Mets. The parade serves to promote pet adoption among New York sports fans and animal lovers on the eve of the Mets first World Series appearance in 15 years.
