Save the life of a homeless pet during the PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend this April 29-May 1. Together with more than 2,000 animal welfare organizations across North America, the three-day event will be held in the more than 1,187 PetSmart stores in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico to find lifelong, loving homes for more than 16,800 dogs, cats and small animals.
Proudly sponsored by Purina® Pro Plan®, Tidy Cats® and PetSmart in the U.S. and Puerto Rico and Purina® Pro Plan®, MAXX Scoop® and PetSmart in Canada, the event is the second of four national adoption weekends in 2011. More than 17,000 pets were adopted into new families during the first national event in February.
“Every year, 4 million pets lose their lives simply because they don’t have a home. It’s our goal to save these lives,” said Susana Della Maddalena, vice president and executive director of PetSmart Charities, Inc. “As a strong advocate for pet adoption, PetSmart Charities sponsors adoption events on a national scale throughout the year that help more pets get the attention they need to find the lifelong, loving homes they deserve.”
