|Give a Forever Home to an Adopted Pet at PetSmart Charities® National Adoption Weekend, May 4-6|
PHOENIX – Looking to add a pet to your family this spring? Gain a loving companion and save a life by adopting your dog, cat, puppy or kitten at PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend, sponsored by PetSmart®, from May 4-6 at your neighborhood PetSmart store. What’s more, every pet adopted will bring PetSmart Charities closer to reaching a milestone of finding lifelong, loving homes for 5 million pets since 1994.
Whether you’re a cat lover or a dog person, you’re sure to find a wonderful companion among the thousands of healthy pets up for adoption by more than 2,000 local animal welfare organizations in all PetSmart stores in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.
“Adoption is one of the key ways to save pets and end pet homelessness, not to mention enrich our own lives with a loving companion,” said Susana Della Maddalena, executive director of PetSmart Charities, Inc. “Thanks to generous donations from our supporters, PetSmart Charities funds hundreds of adoption events and awareness programs each year that have helped find lifelong homes for nearly 5 million pets since our organization was created in 1994.”
Animal-welfare organizations in all 1,210 PetSmart stores in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico will participate in National Adoption Weekend. These events are proudly sponsored by PetSmart, Purina® Pro Plan® and Tidy Cats® (MAXX Scoop® in Canada). Every adoption benefits participating local shelters and rescue agencies which receive $35 in adoption-reward grants from PetSmart Charities for every pet they adopt during the event.
“We are committed to working with PetSmart Charities to help save the lives of homeless pets and ensure that pets stay in happy homes,” said John Alpaugh, chief marketing officer of PetSmart. “That’s why we offer new puppy orientation through advanced training classes and products designed for every pet’s personality and life stage. Our knowledgeable associates are always available to answer any pet parent’s questions.”
