Petsmart Charities' National Pet Adoption Weekend:
May 17 - May 19
Petsmart Charities National Pet Adoption Weekend begins tomorrow, May 17th in Charlotte, North Carolina and every where else around the country and Canada, for that matter.
If you've been thinking about adopting a cat or a dog (or maybe one of or more of each), this is the weekend to do it. Animal welfare organizations will be on site at many PetSmart stores in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico. They'll make it easy for you to find your purrfect fur-ever companion(s).
Over the years over 8.5 MILLION pets have found their fur-ever homes thanks to this great effort by PetSmart Charities. In fact, each of these pet adoption weekends that PetSmart sponsors generate tens of thousands of adoptions. Since 1994 PetSmart Charities have contributed over $400,000,000 in various grants to help communities save pet lives and reduce pet over-population. Today, 2 out of every 10 pet adoptions in North America are through PetSmart Charities and PetSmart has adoption centers in virtually all of their 1,600 stores. PetSmart Charities are ranked in the top 1% of charities nationwide, with over 90 cents of each dollar donated going to their cause. How awesome is all that?
