If you’ve been considering adopting a new four-legged family member, consider saving a life at the PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend, Nov. 11-13. Together with more than 2,000 animal welfare organizations across North America, this three-day event will take place in more than 1,187 PetSmart(R) stores in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico and will showcase nearly 17,000 wonderful adoptable pets.
Proudly sponsored by Purina(R) Pro Plan(R), Tidy Cats(R) and PetSmart(R) in the U.S. and Puerto Rico and Purina(R) Pro Plan(R), MAXX Scoop(R) and PetSmart(R) in Canada, the event is the final national adoption weekend in 2011. With the support of the pet parent community, nearly 51,000 pets have been adopted into lifelong, loving homes this year.
“Adoption allows us to not only save a life but enrich our own,” said Susana Della Maddalena, vice president and executive director of PetSmart Charities, Inc. “Because 4 million pets every year lose their lives needlessly, we are a strong advocate for pet adoption. Therefore, PetSmart Charities sponsors several national and local adoption events throughout the year that help find homes for thousands of lovable and healthy pets.”
