Fall Into Love With an Adoptable Pet at PetSmart Charities® National Adoption Weekend, September 13-15

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwired - Aug 28, 2013) - This September may be the perfect time of year to add a new companion to your home, and you can do just that by adopting at the PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend, Sept. 13-15 at all Puerto Rico PetSmart® stores. Not only will you gain a loving friend through adoption, but you'll also save the life of a deserving pet.

More than 2,000 adoption partners will be on-site at all 1,300 PetSmart stores to help you fall head over paws with a new furry friend, whether you're a feline fanatic or devoted to dogs.

Not only will you save a life by adopting this fall, but PetSmart Charities will also reward all participating local adoption partners; each will receive $35 in adoption-reward grants for every pet adopted at this event.

National Adoption Weekends are sponsored by PetSmart, Purina® Pro Plan® and Tidy Cats® (MAXX Scoop® in Canada). The final National Adoption Weekend of 2013 will take place November 15-17.
