PetSmart, The Adopt Spot™, 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 Charities™ 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 Hinesville, 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 – more than 7.3 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.
