FALL IN LOVE WITH AN ADOPTABLE PET AT PETSMART CHARITIES® NATIONAL ADOPTION WEEKEND, SEPTEMBER 14-16

PHOENIX – Fall head over paws for an adopted dog, cat, puppy or kitten during the PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend, sponsored by PetSmart®, from September 14-16 at your neighborhood PetSmart store. Not only will you gain a loving companion, but you’ll also give a forever home to a deserving pet.

The event brings together more than 2,000 U.S., Canadian and Puerto Rican local animal welfare organizations with a variety of adoptable pets in need of homes and a perfect match for you. Both purebreds and mixed breeds are available for adoption, as well as cats and dogs looking for their lifelong home.

“Adoption is one of the key ways to save pets and end pet homelessness, not to mention enrich our own lives with a loving companion,” said Susana Della Maddalena, executive director of PetSmart Charities, Inc. “Thanks to generous donations from our supporters, PetSmart Charities funds hundreds of adoption events and awareness programs each year that have helped find homes for more than 5 million pets.”

Animal-welfare organizations are on-site in all 1,250 PetSmart stores in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico and will participate in National Adoption Weekend. These events are proudly sponsored by PetSmart, Purina® Pro Plan® and Tidy Cats® (MAXX Scoop® in Canada).  Every adoption benefits participating local shelters and rescue agencies which receive $35 in adoption-reward grants from PetSmart Charities for every pet they adopt during the event.

“Working with PetSmart Charities, we are committed to helping save the lives of homeless pets by donating space in every store for pet adoptions,” said John Alpaugh, PetSmart’s chief marketing officer. “By offering training classes and a variety of products that help pet parents, we help these pets stay in happy, forever homes.”
