Tickets are $20 each, with all proceeds going to The Mayor's Alliance for New York Animals, Animal Care & Control of New York, and the ASPCA. We loved the guidelines for the walk - surely it's the only event to make sure some participants are "spayed/neutered dogs" and maybe it shouldn't be the only event to remind people "Be prepared to clean up after your dog."

And there's also an ice cream social at Leashes & Lovers you can buy tickets for - open bar and snacks, plus Kendall Jackson Doghouse Wine and "complimentary painting of your dog" (probably a painting painting, not face-painting).
