Spring into action...adopt a pet at National Adoption Weekend!

Start this spring off on the right paw. Spring into action and adopt a pet at the PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend from May 2-4 at your local PetSmart store. The weekend-long event allows people to meet thousands of friendly, lovable dogs and cats waiting for someone to spring into action and adopt them. Whether it’s a clever cat or a playful puppy, you are bound to find a new best friend.

More than 2,000 animal welfare organizations will be on-site at all 1,300 PetSmart stores in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico. Prospective pet parents can meet the dogs and cats available for adoption and talk with volunteers about the adoption process and how to prepare to bring a new pet into their home.

“If you are interested in adding a new furry companion to your family, you may be considering buying. But, homeless cats and dogs can be even more rewarding and a better choice,” said Jan Wilkins, executive director of PetSmart Charities, Inc. “Adopting a cat or dog is sure to bring you a lifetime of unconditional love.”

“At PetSmart, we believe pets make us better people,” said David Lenhardt, chief executive officer, PetSmart. “Partnering with PetSmart Charities for National Adoption Weekend events allow us to create more moments for people to be inspired by pets.”

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 are proud sponsors of National Adoption Weekend.

Visit the PetSmart Charities’ adoption center inside any PetSmart store in the United States, Canada or Puerto Rico from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday, May 2 & Saturday, May 3 and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday, May 4. To find the PetSmart store nearest you, visit or call 1-877-473-8762.
