Get a new team member and save a life this National Adoption Weekend
Fall is here and you know what that means: football season is back. Whether you cheer loudly for your team every weekend or simply jump on the bandwagon at the end of the season, it’s a great time to add another “teammate” to your cheering section. This fall, consider saving a life by adopting a pet at the PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend.
This weekend-long event, sponsored by PetSmart, Purina Pro Plan and Tidy Cats, takes place from September 12 to 14 at your local PetSmart store, and it is the perfect opportunity to find a new teammate.
More than 2,000 animal welfare organizations will be on-site at all 1,300 PetSmart stores in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico to help you find a new buddy to cheer alongside you this season.
“Collaborating with our adoption partners throughout North America allows us to help find homes for thousands of deserving pets each National Adoption Weekend,” said Jan Wilkins, executive director of PetSmart Charities. “Not only will you save a life if you choose to adopt, but you’ll also be rewarded with a lifetime of unconditional love.”
“At PetSmart, we believe pets make us better people,” said David Lenhardt, chief executive officer, PetSmart. “Partnering with PetSmart Charities for National Adoption Weekend events allow us to create more moments for people to be inspired by pets while saving thousands of lives.”
PetSmart Charities rewards all participating adoption partners – and each will receive $35 in adoption-reward grants for every pet adopted during the event.
