As many of us are just now learning, football is “the” sport to follow. Wouldn’t it be great to add another “teammate” to your cheering section; a “tail”gater that will be there for years to come?

Well, the possibilities of locating the perfect companion will be endless at the PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend that is coming up on Friday, September 12th and lasting through Sunday, September 14th! All 1,300 PetSmart stores across the country will be participating! Each participating adoption partner will receive $35 in adoption-reward grants for every pet adopted from their organization during the event.

While helping to save a life, you may just be gaining the very best friend that you could possibly hope for; one that will help your team score on the home front! There will be a variety of pets to choose from – most certainly one will be right for you!

The event is weekend-long and is sponsored by PetSmart®. The PetSmart in Wheaton is located at 63 Rice Lake Square. It is the perfect location to invite locale rescues and shelters to show off their orphaned dogs (and cats) and help to find them a forever home.

Overall, there will be more than 2,000 animal welfare organizations on the various 1,300 PetSmart store sites in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico. This gives you an opportunity to find the perfect new buddy to cheer alongside you this season!

“Collaborating with our adoption partners throughout North America allows us to help find homes for thousands of deserving pets each National Adoption Weekend,” said Jan Wilkins, Executive Director of PetSmart Charities. “Not only will you save a life if you choose to adopt, but you’ll also be rewarded with a lifetime of unconditional love.”

“At PetSmart, we believe pets make us better people,” said David Lenhardt, Chief Executive Officer, PetSmart. “Partnering with PetSmart Charities for National Adoption Weekend events allow us to create more moments for people to be inspired by pets while saving thousands of lives.”

Besides all of that, PetSmart Charities rewards all participating adoption partners; each will receive $35 in adoption-reward grants for every pet adopted during the event. PetSmart, Inc., Purina® Pro Plan® and Tidy Cats® are proud sponsors of National Adoption Weekend.
