Check out the cute dogs you can volunteer to walk (or adopt!) in Brooklyn

These six pooches, and others, are just waiting for you to take a nice stroll through the neighborhood

Not all of our landlords allow dogs in our pads, and a lot of us are pretty space-squeezed, but that doesn’t mean you still can’t spend time with a precious pooch. Head to BARC in Williamsburg to walk one of the six dogs there, or many other potential pets in NYC, or find other places to become an animal shelter volunteer.

Meet the mutts!
