Pet Supplies Plus is teaming up with local animal shelters to host what they hope to be a monumental Adopt-a-Pet Weekend on October 19-20, 2013. The event is meant to coincide with National Pet Adoption Month and its annual October Donation Drive. The goal of Adopt-a-Pet Weekend is to place countless deserving pets in new, forever homes.
According to the Humane Society, approximately 8 million stray and unwanted animals are taken in by shelters across the country each year. Tragically, about 3.4 million are euthanized because good homes cannot be found. Executives of Pet Supplies Plus decided to raise awareness and badly-needed funds for various rescue groups to help save these well-deserving pets.
Pet Supplies Plus corporate stores and participating franchise locations will individually partner with a local animal rescue group. Dogs and cats available for adoption will be showcased, and the times for the events will vary by location.
For those who adopt a pet, Pet Supplies Plus will provide an informative New Pet Checklist and a coupon for $10 off $50 spent at the store.
Those interested in attending Adopt-a-Pet Weekend are encouraged to visit their website in advance for additional details.
Throughout the entire month of October, Pet Supplies Plus locations will continue support for their local animal rescue organization by offering shoppers the chance to donate at checkout for the chain's
annual October Donation Drive. Patrons will have the opportunity to support their local rescue agency by donating funds via cash, credit or debit card.
"Hosting Adopt-a-Pet Weekend and our annual October Donation Drive is not only an honor for us, it's a responsibility as well," said Dave Bolen, CEO of Pet Supplies Plus. "Adopt-a-Pet Weekend will create a
tremendous opportunity for people to make a lasting impact on the lives of so many deserving pets. Potential adopters are going to find wonderful pets and caring people at our Pet Supplies Plus locations, and we're all excited for people to go home with a perfect new family member."
Pet Supplies Plus endeavors to stands out in the industry by offering consumers an expert team of pet lovers, a wide array of natural pet foods, a variety of Made in the USA pet consumables such as wet and dry food, treats, rawhide, chews and more, all in a welcoming environment where the team members are encouraged to get to know their neighbors and their pets by name.
Many locations also feature a full menu of grooming services tailored to meet every pet's needs including dog washes, haircuts, full body brushing, flea treatment and nail, skin, ear and oral care.
