Petsmart Charities' National Pet Adoption Weekend:

May 17 - May 19

 

Adopt don't shop for a pet and bring love homePetsmart 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?

Sheila Anderson hi Sheila... PetSmart Charities do four of these weekends each year and what they accomplish is simply awesome. I do have to stay away from the store during these events... because I want to bring all those fur babies home with me!

Grant Schneider good morning, Grant... I am in awe of what PetSmart Charities accomplishes in four adoption weekends each year and how much money they donate to support this cause throughout the year. I think a lot of people don't realize what they do and how much and just think of it as a pet supply organization.

Nina,

I admire Pet Smart for their efforts on behalf of the furries. Yesterday we met a ver nice couple from NC. They live in the Raleigh area close to Fuquay Varina. She donates to the local shelter and I mentioned your shelter needed food. When she gets home she will contribute. Please give me the specific shelter and I will forward the info to her. A

Oh my goodness, Alexandra... how thoughtful of you. The shelter I support is the Humane Society of York County. They are a relatively small shelter and receive not one penny of public assistance. I just can't say thank you enough. I'll be riding over there on Saturday to deliver supplies, myself.

Sandy Padula and Norm Padula, JD, GRI hi Sandy and Norm... it seems no matter how many get adopted, there's always a ton more dogs and cats behind those looking for a home.

Nina, I went past the Dumb Friends League the other day, and took everything I had not to pull into the lot!   The vet said Mia is too old to "put up with" another cat in the house.   :-(

Joan Cox hi Joan... I've often wondered how vets know this. And I've often wondered if those older cats on their own are actually lonely and could use a bit of companionship.
