The ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) is teaming up
with tattoo artist and TV personality Megan Massacre, featured in TLC’s reality shows NY Ink and America’s Worst Tattoos, to hold a “Tats ‘N’ Tails” adoption event at Grit N Glory on the Lower East Side of Manhattan on Sunday, July 3. Cats and dogs from the ASPCA’s Adoption Center will be available for adoption and Megan will offer specially designed animal-themed tattoos.
All tattoos selected from a custom flash sheet will be priced at $100, with all proceeds going to the ASPCA. Those who adopt will receive a free t-shirt and be entered into a contest to win a $1,000 tattoo by Megan. T-shirts will also be available for purchase on gritnglory.com, with proceeds going to the ASPCA. The event will also include a photo booth, additional giveaways and more.
“As an animal lover and adopter, I am excited to be collaborating with the ASPCA,” said Massacre. “Being able to use my art and abilities to help animals be adopted, as well as raise awareness about animal welfare, is the biggest reward. I hope the event inspires others to adopt and contribute to this important cause.”
