One pet's life is saved every minute that the PetSmart Charities' adoption centers are open. PetSmart Charities now provides more than $10 million a year in adoption-reward grants to the thousands of animal-welfare agencies it collaborates with through the in-store adoption program.
     
PLUS:   All cat and dog adopters will receive free samples from Hill's Science Diet Brand and PetSmart®. In addition, PetSmart Charities will provide increased adoption-reward grants to all participating shelters and rescue agencies; in fact, all agencies will receive $35 from PetSmart Charities for every pet they place into a lifelong, loving home between April 26 and the close of the event on May 2.
