Celebrate the Season by Adopting a Pet at PetSmart Charities® National Adoption Weekend, November 15-17

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwired - Oct 31, 2013) - As we head into the holiday season, we find ourselves reflecting on what we're most thankful for. Anyone who has adopted a pet often puts their companion at the top of that list -- and it's mutual for that deserving cat or dog. Luckily, if you're interested in adding a new four-legged friend to your family, you can do so at the PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend, Nov. 15-17 at all Puerto Rico PetSmart® stores.

More than 3,000 adoption partners will be on-site at all 1,300 PetSmart stores to help you find your perfect match, whether it's a dog, cat, puppy, kitten, mixed-breed or purebred.

PetSmart Charities works to reduce the pet homelessness population every day. All of its programs, including National Adoption Weekend, are made possible through donations. Just $25 saves the life of a healthy, adoptable pet and funds programs that give these pets a second chance. If you're not able to adopt a pet, you can support PetSmart Charities by making a donation online, by email at or via phone at 1-800-745-9460.

PetSmart Charities will also reward all participating local adoption partners; each will receive $35 in adoption-reward grants for every pet adopted during the event. National Adoption Weekends are sponsored by PetSmart, Purina® Pro Plan® and Tidy Cats® (MAXX Scoop® in Canada).
