This February 11-13, you can give a pet a second chance to find a lifelong, loving home during the PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend. The three-day event will be held in all 1,172 PetSmart® stores in the United States and Canada.
Proudly sponsored by Purina® Pro Plan®, Tidy Cats® and PetSmart® in the U.S. and Purina® Pro Plan®, MAXX Scoop® and PetSmart® in Canada, the event is the first of four national adoption weekends in 2011. More than 2,000 animal-welfare organizations across North America will participate with the goal of finding homes for 17,229 dogs, cats and small animals.
“Every year, about eight million dogs and cats enter animal shelters in the U.S., and about half must be euthanized,” said Susana Della Maddelana, vice president and executive director of PetSmart Charities, Inc. “PetSmart Charities is a strong advocate for pet adoptions, and we see how many pets’ lives can be saved during these events. Adoption not only saves the life of a homeless pet, but it also enriches yours.”
