PetSmart, The Adopt SpotTM, is where people save pets and
pets save people. Since its founding in 1987, PetSmart recognized the
pet homelessness problem and made the decision to never sell dogs or
cats. To help end pet homelessness and save lives, PetSmart joins
PetSmart Charities®, PetSmart CharitiesTM of Canada and
nearly 3,000 local animal welfare organizations across North America on
a range of powerful adoption events in PetSmart stores.
PetSmart is a leader in ending pet homelessness through in-store
adoptions that happen every day in its stores, and through National
Adoption Weekends, held four times a year, where more than 20,000 pets
find forever homes in a single weekend. Each year, millions of pets
enter shelters across North America and some 3 million healthy,
adoptable pets are euthanized.
Every PetSmart store, including this store in Albemarle, builds
long-lasting relationships with local animal welfare organizations to
utilize its stores as adoption centers. PetSmart and its adoption
partners have reached a significant milestone – 7 million pets adopted
since 1994! For every 30 seconds a PetSmart store is open a pet’s life
is saved, totaling about 1,400 lives saved every day.
