Adoption Events Celebrate Pets

Find hundreds of pets at PetSmart Charities® of Canada events

When Zafar Jamal began looking for a cat, he found news about an upcoming PetSmart CharitiesTM of Canada Adoption Event in Toronto, Ont.

"I thought it was the greatest thing," Zafar said at the event. "I mean, so many pets out there need homes, so what better opportunity to do that and help be a part of it too.”

Zafar adopted Bird, a fluffy orange cat, that day. Bird was one of 585 homeless pets who found homes that weekend.

Find a furry friend among hundreds of pets

When you attend a PetSmart Charities of Canada Adoption Event, prepare yourself for wagging tails, wet noses and lots of unconditional love. Animal welfare groups bring dozens of cats and dogs to these events, giving you plenty of opportunities to find your future pet.

  • National Adoption Weekends. On average, more than 1,000 pets find homes every time PetSmart Charities of Canada hosts a National Adoption Weekend. Held 4 times a year, these events showcase adoptable pets in nearly every PetSmart® store in Canada.
  • Community adoption events. PetSmart Charities of Canada provides grants for local adoption groups to team up for community-wide events, like Toronto’s Mega Adoption Event, where hundreds of adoptable pets are all in one place. These events give you more choices to find the right pet for your family.

In 2016, over 25,000 cats and dogs found homes at PetSmart Charities of Canada Adoption Centres and Adoption Events.
