The PetSmart National Adoption Event is scheduled for Friday, Saturday and Sunday (Nov. 11-13) at stores across the country. The local Wilmington outlet – located 4715 New Centre Drive (CQ) in the Target Shopping Center – will play host to about 10 area rescue organizations, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. over the three days of the event.
The participating groups include Cat Tails, Cat Adoption Team, Columbus Humane Society, Joy Makers, Topsail Humane, Monty’s Home, Furever Friends, RACE, PEAR and Cape Fear Rescue League. Volunteers from all of these groups will have adoptable pets on hand.
All of the pets looking for new families will be current on all shots and have been spayed or neutered.
Each pet adopted during the event will go home with one free bag of Pro Plan food. A pet food drive will also be conducted. These donations are very important in tough economic times for rescues.
