Pet Day at Deno's Wonder Wheel 2013

Pet owners brought their four-legged friends to Coney Island on Saturday, June 15, for Pet Day at Deno’s Wonder Wheel. The lucky pets were given a free ride on the Wonder Wheel (accompanied by their owners, of course), then took part in a pet costume contest on the boardwalk. The day also served as a pet food and adoption drive; attendees donated cans of cat or dog food, and the Sean Casey Animal Rescue parked an adoption vehicle on 12th Street all day long, inviting amusement seekers to take in an abandoned dog, cat or other animal.
