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.
