Find hundreds of pets at PetSmart Charities of Canada adoption events

When Zafar Jamal began looking for a cat, he found news about an upcoming PetSmart Charities of Canada Adoption Event in Toronto, Ontario. "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 and his daughter adopted a fluffy orange cat named "Bird", that day and they're pictured at right.  Bird was one of 585 homeless pets who found homes that weekend.
