NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

The ASPCA in New York City is kicking off the first official week of fall with a special pet adoption event. The society is offering special pricing discounts and giveaways from September 22 through September 29.

These are the five promotions offered during the adoption event:

1. Adoption fee waived for animals older than 8 months

2. Free pet food samples, travel bowls and food-can lids (while supplies last) from HALO Foundation

3. Free spaying/neutering, vaccinations, and microchip

4. Free ID tag, collar and leash for dogs; free ID tag, collar and cardboard carrier for cats

5. Certificate for a free vet visit within two weeks of adoption at ASPCA Animal Hospital

"The ASPCA is hoping that potential adopters will Fall in Love this week with one of our amazing animals who are looking for a home," said Gail Buchwald, senior vice president of the adoption center. "The weather is perfect this time of year for outside activities for dogs, and there aren't the holidays that come with lots of parties which can be stressful for everyone, including the animals."

If you are interested in adopting a cat or dog, go to the ASPCA Adoption Center at 424 East 92nd Street on the Upper East Side of Manhattan from Sunday, September 22, through Sunday, September 29.

    Report: health risks at some nail salons

    Monday, September 15 2014 10:28 PM EDT2014-09-16 02:28:27 GMT
    One of the most surprising findings in a report from the New York City public advocate is that city officials have virtually no authority over how nail salons are run. The city can't enforce standards like they do with restaurants, so it's clearly a case of beauty buyer beware. We get our nails done without thinking too much about it.

    A judge allowed a confession tape to be played in court in connection with the case of Etan Patz, who vanished in 1979. On the tape, Pedro Hernandez described how he killed Patz. But his lawyers say Hernandez falsely confessed and doesn't understand his rights. Before Hernandez's videotaped confession was played, Patz's mother quickly left the courtroom unable to watch the video.
