The new store features more than 18,000 square feet of space, providing

PetSmart, The Adopt Spot™, is where people save pets and pets save
people. Since its founding in 1987, PetSmart recognized the pet
homelessness problem and made the decision to never sell dogs or cats.
To help end pet homelessness and save lives, PetSmart joins PetSmart
Charities®, PetSmart Charities™ of Canada and more than 3,500 local
animal welfare organizations across North America on a range of powerful
adoption events in PetSmart stores.
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 as many as 30,000-plus
pets find forever homes in a single weekend event. Each year, millions
of pets enter shelters across North America and some 3 million healthy,
adoptable pets are euthanized.
Every PetSmart store, including this store in Orlando, builds
long-lasting relationships with local animal welfare organizations to
utilize its stores as adoption centers. PetSmart and its adoption
partners have reached a significant milestone – more than 7.6 million
pets adopted since 1994! Nearly two out of every 10 pet adoptions in
North America are facilitated at a PetSmart store.
