Thinking of adding a new pet to your home? Visit your neighborhood PetSmart® store during the PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend scheduled for September 13-15, 2013. Not only will you gain a loving friend through adoption, but you’ll also save the life of a deserving pet.
More than 2,000 adoption partners will be on-site at all 1,300 PetSmart stores in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico to help you select your new furry friend, whether you’re a feline fanatic or devoted to dogs.
“Collaborating with our adoption partners throughout North America allows us help find homes for thousands of deserving pets each National Adoption Weekend,” said Jan Wilkins, executive director, PetSmart Charities, Inc. “By focusing our efforts in local communities to achieve the greatest impact, PetSmart Charities has become a leader in pet adoptions by finding homes for more than 5.5 million dogs and cats since 1994.”
In addition, PetSmart Charities will also reward all participating local adoption partners. Each will receive $35 in adoption-reward grants for every pet adopted this weekend.
“As part of PetSmart’s vision of providing total lifetime care, we are committed to saving pets’ lives,” said David Lenhardt, chief executive officer, PetSmart. “We are proud to partner with PetSmart Charities to find lifelong, loving homes for thousands of pets this National Adoption Weekend.”
