A partnership between the Humane Society of St. Lucie County and Petco in Port St. Lucie reached a noteworthy milestone recently: the one thousandth pet adoption.
Over the past two and a half years, an on-site adoption center at the Petco on St. Lucie West Boulevard has made finding a permanent home a bit easier for dogs and cats from the Humane Society.
Shawn Hart, marketing and outreach coordinator for the Humane Society, said the organization’s goals dovetail nicely with those of Petco. “Part of Petco’s slogan is ‘Think adoption first,’ ” she said.
While some customers may not come in intending to adopt an animal, Hart said what often happens is “they see somebody who just warms their heart. If they fit the bill, we can adopt right from the site.”
