Are you one of the many New Yorker's (like me) looking to adopt their own pup or Instagram pet celebrity? Even though the struggle to have a pet in the city is real, there are a few of us who are willing to give up the little free time we have outside of work to share our cramped apartments with a furry companion.

There are tons of adoption centers and rescues in the city that can sometimes be difficult to navigate, but this weekend Best Friends Animal Society will make it easy. The animal welfare organization is hosting a free super adoption event from April 24-26 with over 600 of the city's most eligible pets up for adoption. More than 30 animal rescue groups will have dogs and cats up for adoption, including Second Chance Rescue, Bully Project and Staten Island Hope Animal Rescue. Potential adopters can also expect to see some animal-loving celebs throughout the weekend including Maggie Q, Jake Robinson and others.

The free event will be held at The Altman Building at 135 W. 18th Street in Manhattan from 4-8pm on Friday, and Saturday and Sunday from 11am-7pm. Adoptions start at $25, which is a bargain for anything in New York. All pets will be neutered and vaccinated, and adopters will also receive a goody bag when they take home their new pet. We can only wonder what's in them. Poop bags? Doggie rain booties? 

Here's who you could take home this weekend:
