Celebrate Saving Homeless Pets During PetSmart Charities® National Adoption Weekend, November 2-4

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - Oct 24, 2012) - Celebrate the season -- and save a life -- by adopting a pet into your family during the PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend, sponsored by PetSmart®, from November 2-4 at all Puerto Rico PetSmart stores.

Animal-welfare organizations will be on-site at all 1,250 PetSmart stores. These events are proudly sponsored by PetSmart, Purina® Pro Plan® and Tidy Cats®. As an added incentive, participating local shelters and rescue agencies will receive $35 in adoption-reward grants from PetSmart Charities for every pet they adopt during the event.

PetSmart Charities' programs, including National Adoption Weekend, are made possible through donations. Just $25 saves the life of a healthy, adoptable pet and funds programs focused on giving these pets a second chance. Donations can be made online, by email at or by calling 623-587-2826.
