PetSmart is a leader in ending pet homelessness through in-store
adoptions that happen every day in its stores, and through National
Adoption Weekends, held four times a year, where more than 20,000 pets
find lifelong, forever homes in a single weekend. Each year, about 7
million pets enter shelters across North America and some 3 million
healthy, adoptable pets are euthanized. To help end pet homelessness and
save lives, PetSmart joins PetSmart Charities, PetSmart Charities of
Canada and nearly 3,000 local animal welfare organizations across North
America on a range of powerful adoption events in PetSmart stores. Last
year, two pets were adopted every minute a PetSmart store was open and
about 1,400 pets’ lives were saved each day.
