4) They are great listeners who think you are the smartest person in the room
3) They are always excited to see you
2) They will never complain about your cooking
1) Unconditional love…need we say more?
This Valentine’s Day, why not fall in love with a deserving adoptable cat or dog? The PetSmart Charities Be My Valentine Adoption Weekendtakes place from Feb. 14-15 at your local PetSmart store. This two-day event allows people to meet thousands of friendly, lovable dogs and cats that are looking for their forever home.
More than 3,000 animal welfare organizations will be on-site at all 1,300 PetSmart stores in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico. They can help you find the perfect valentine, whether you’re looking for a purebred or mixed breed, or a dog, cat, puppy or kitten.
“Adopting a cat or dog is sure to bring you unconditional love – not only on this Valentine’s Day – but for a lifetime,” said Jan Wilkins, executive director, PetSmart Charities. “We are thankful for our adoption partners for helping to make this event possible and for helping potential adopters fall into love with thousands of deserving pets.”
“At PetSmart, we understand the unconditional love we receive from pets,” said David Lenhardt, chief executive officer, PetSmart. “Partnering with PetSmart Charities for the Be My Valentine Adoption Weekend event allows us to create more of these bonds between people and pets while also saving thousands of lives.”
