Petco is raising awareness for pet adoptions during their National Adoption Weekend. Every Petco store will host pet adoptions Saturday and Sunday, March 10-11, 2012 from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. in hopes of placing shelter animals in forever homes. Hill’s will be sponsoring the weekend by offering adopters a free can of wet dog or cat food along with $10 off any bag of Science Diet dry dog or cat food.

Petco has revamped their Adoption site and now it features an adoption wall for sharing adoption success stories with others. Petco and the Petco Foundation work with and support approximately 7,500 local animal welfare groups across the country to help find homes for more than 250,000 animals through in-store adoption events every year.
