Unconditional love is waiting for prospective pet owners at the PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend, sponsored by PetSmart®, from February 14-16 at your local PetSmart store. Whether they looking for a relaxed, cool cat or a youthful, energetic puppy, most are bound to find the perfect match. It's a perfect time to love a pet during Valentine's Day weekend.

With more than 2,000 “matchmakers” (animal-welfare organizations) on-site at all 1,300 PetSmart stores in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico, prospective owners can easily find the perfect pet to cuddle up with during National Adoption Weekend.

“PetSmart Charities is making a tremendous impact on pet homelessness and individual lives through National Adoption Weekend events,” said Jan Wilkins, executive director of PetSmart Charities, Inc. “We know that adopting pets not only saves their lives, but it makes our lives better, too.”

PetSmart Charities will reward 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® (MAXX Scoop® in Canada) are proud sponsors of National Adoption Weekend.

“By partnering with PetSmart Charities, we’re able to make lifelong matches between thousands of deserving pets and pet parents every National Adoption Weekend,” said David Lenhardt, chief executive officer, PetSmart. “At PetSmart, we know that pets enrich our lives and we’re proud to play a key role in these adoption events.”
