Our Adoption Centres Help Pets Find Homes

Your forever friend is just waiting to meet you!

We partner with hundreds of local animal welfare agencies and adoption groups who provide the pets you'll meet at a PetSmart Charities™ of Canada Adoption Centre located inside nearly every PetSmart store across the country.

Adoption Centres showcase adoptable pets
You can adopt kittens and cats in our in-store adoption centres every day during store hours. On weekends, our adoption groups bring dogs, cats, kittens and smaller pocket pets into the stores so they can meet more potential adopters like you.

These centres increase adoptions and free up space at local shelters so that they can continue to rescue and rehome even more homeless cats and dogs. PetSmart Charities of Canada's adoption centres also help groups that don’t have space in their shelters a place to showcase their adoptable pets and find them the forever homes they deserve.

Adopt a pet, reap the rewards
When you adopt a pet at one of our adoption centres, we pay the adoption group a grant that helps them provide support for another pet in need.

As an adopter, you reap rewards too:

  • Savings. When you adopt, you’ll receive a free adoption kit from PetSmart with more than $400 in free products, services coupons and discounts for pet essentials.
  • Health. Adoptable pets are current on their vaccinations and are typically already spayed or neutered. 
  • Trust. PetSmart Charities of Canada screens adoption partners to ensure they are qualified to arrange adoptions of healthy pets.
  • Inside information. Adoption representatives have cared for, and sometimes even fostered, the pets available. Ask them about a pet’s personality, medical history and habits to help you find the pet that's just right for you.  

PetSmart CharitiesTM of Canada Adoption Centres offer warm and welcoming places to find your next pet.



Our lifesaving work across Canada depends on donations from caring pet lovers like you.
