National Adoption Weekend

What is National Adoption Weekend?

Four times per year, PetSmart Charities works with Animal Welfare Organizations across North America to host pet adoption events within PetSmart stores.

When you attend, you'll find dogs, puppies, cats, kittens and small pets all in need of a lifelong, loving home.

The amazing organizations we work with ensure each pet is spayed and neutered prior to adoption, giving you added peace of mind as you search for your new best friend.
