PetSmart Charities’ National Adoption Weekend: What You Need To Know

PetSmart® stores are known for having adoption events several weekends each year, but this weekend is National Adoption Weekend – the biggest pet adoption weekend of the year – and you’re invited.

PetSmart Charities’ National Adoption Weekend is November 13-15 at all participating PetSmart® stores in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico.

Your newest best friend is just waiting to meet you, and there are two easy ways to be united:

Search Adoptable Pets Near You

The PetSmart Charities’ website has a handy tool where users simply type in their location (either zip code or city/state), specify whether they’re looking for a cat or a dog, and then hit search. Users will then be directed to a page that says how many adoptable cats/dogs are available near the designated location. Searches can be further narrowed down by the pet’s age, color, distance, fur length, and gender. Clicking on a pet brings up another page that shows where the animal is located, the animal’s story, and how to apply for the animal.

Search PetSmart CharitiesTM Adoption Centers Near You

Also on the PetSmart Charities’ website is a tool where users type in their location (either zip code or city/state), specify a mile radius, and click search. Users will then be directed to a page with a list of participating PetSmart® stores. Once you find a store near you, you can visit the store between November 13-15 and be united with your new best friend!

Animal welfare organizations will be on-site at participating PetSmart® stores to help pair adoptable pets with loving families.

I did experience slow loading time on the PetSmart Charities’ website, so users should take note that there may be some lagging. Lots of people are looking for their new best friends!
