PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend, sponsored by PetSmart®, is this weekend from February 22-24 at your local PetSmart store.

With more than 126 “matchmakers” (animal-welfare organizations) on-site at all PetSmart stores in Canada, you’re bound to find the perfect pet partner during National Adoption Weekend.

“PetSmart Charities is changing lives with innovative programs and events that address the pet overpopulation problem at the community level,” said John DeFranco, President of PetSmart Charities of Canada, Inc. “When you adopt, you save a pet’s life and enrich your own.”

Further sharing the love, PetSmart Charities will give all participating animal-welfare organizations $35 in adoption-reward grants for every pet adopted during this event.

National Adoption Weekend events are sponsored by PetSmart, Purina® Pro Plan® and MAXX Scoop®.

“By donating space for pet adoptions in every PetSmart store nationwide, we are working with PetSmart Charities to save the lives of homeless pets,” said Rob Smith, Regional Director, PetSmart Canada. “PetSmart helps strengthen every pet relationship over a lifetime through premium food, stylish apparel and in-store services like grooming and training.”
