PetSmart® locations throughout the United States and Canada will be holding a National Adoption Weekend on February 22 through February 24, 2013 at all store locations.
During the PetSmart® National Adoption Weekend it is hoped that thousands of pets waiting for homes will find permanent placements.
Those interested in determining times should contact their local PetSmart® for more information.
The following details are from the PetSmart® site, and this information reminds us why groups helping pets are so important:
Today, there are millions of loveable, healthy dogs & cats that desperately need homes. Due to overpopulation of homeless pets, 4 million are euthanized every year— that's 11,000 pets every day. For this reason, PetSmart has chosen not to sell dogs or cats and instead we join forces with PetSmart Charities to help save the lives of pets through adoptions. Many homeless pets are purebred, so even if you’re looking for a particularbreed, our adoptions program can help you find your next best friend.
According to the PetSmart®, the National Adoption Weekend is sponsored by PetSmart® Purina® Pro Plan®, Tidy Cats® (U.S. only) and Purina® Maxx® Scoop (Canada only).
Animal Welfare groups may contact their local PetSmart® stores for details about participating.
The PetSmart® National Adoption Weekend may be the best time for everyone wanting a new pet to add one to the family.
