Petco and Nature’s Recipe Host National Pet Adoption Weekend

WHAT: With 5-7 million companion animals entering shelters every year, Petco™ is helping to raise awareness for this issue during their monthly National Adoption Weekend. Every Petco store will host pet adoption events the weekend of January 7, 2012. The events will provide animal lovers across the nation with the chance to meet many adoptable pets, learn about local animal adoption groups and inquire about the best ways to care for a new pet.

Nature’s Recipe® is sponsoring the weekend by providing a $3 off coupon to all shoppers and a free small bag of dry food (5lbs or smaller) to adopting pet parents. Adopters can also find out about Petco’s Think Adoption First Care and Savings program, which provides all pet parents who adopt additional savings on food and supplies for their new pet.
