PetSmart Backs Huge Adoption Event
Holiday drive to find more than 15,000 lifelong, loving homes.
Learn about PetSmart's holiday adoption event, November 13-15.

PetSmart Charities is going gangbusters on homeless animals next month with an ambitious Holiday National Adoption Event, November 13-15. More than 2,000 animal-welfare agencies throughout the United States are expected to participate by bringing adoptable pets to in-store adoption centers in all 1,082 PetSmart stores.

While it’s rarely a good idea to give animals as gifts at any time of year, there’s nothing wrong with channeling the generous and compassionate spirit of holidays to find homes for some of the 6 to 8 million dogs and cats bound for animal shelters each year. It’s a big challenge, and we commend this big response.

Holiday National Adoption Weekend details: Prospective adopters are encouraged to visit the PetSmart Charities Adoption Center inside any PetSmart store in the U.S. from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 13 and Saturday, Nov. 14; and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 15. Adoptions are handled by participating animal-welfare groups. Call a PetSmart store near you to find out about a specific agency’s set-up time during the three-day event.

Visit www.PetSmart.com or call 1-877-473-8762 to learn more.

And kudos to PetSmart for organizing this pre-holiday so that the adoptees have plenty of time to adjust to their new family before the holiday season really takes off. What fun to have a new four-legged member of the family for the holidays.

You can also get more information on the PetSmart Charities site: www.petsmartcharities.org. The event is part of four national adoption events held in 2009. PetSmart Charities is also on the verge of reaching its 4 millionth pet adopted, which will be an amazing milestone!
