Give a Pet a Forever Home for the Holidays at PetSmart Charities(R) National 
Adoption Weekend, November 15-17 
PHOENIX, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 10/31/13 --  The holidays remind us
of the things we're thankful for, and for those with adopted pets,
their furry friends top that list. Thousands of deserving pets are
waiting for you at the PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend,
Nov. 15-17 at your neighborhood PetSmart(R) store.  
Thousands of local animal welfare groups will have adorable and
adoptable pets at all 1,300 PetSmart stores in the United States,
Canada and Puerto Rico. They can help you find your perfect match,
whether it's a dog, cat, puppy, kitten, mixed-breed or purebred. 
Nonprofit PetSmart Charities depends on donations to offer special
events like this one. A donation of just $25 helps save a pet's life
through adoption. You can donate online, by email at or via phone at 1-800-745-9460. 
"We're so thankful for the joy that an adopted pet brings to our
lives, but we know that not everyone is able to adopt," said Jan
Wilkins, executive director of PetSmart Charities, Inc. "You can
celebrate saving a pet's life with a donation that will help fund
adoption events like this, which play a huge role in PetSmart
Charities finding homes for more than 400,000 pets every year." 
PetSmart Charities will also reward all participating local adoption
partners; each will receive $35 in adoption-reward grants for every
pet adopted during the event. PetSmart, Inc., Purina(R) Pro Plan(R)
and Tidy Cats(R) (MAXX Scoop(R) in Canada) are proud sponsors of
National Adoption Weekend. 
"We are proud to partner with PetSmart Charities to find lifelong,
loving homes for thousands of pets this National Adoption Weekend,"
said David Lenhardt, chief executive officer, PetSmart. "At PetSmart,
we believe pets make us better people, and events such as this are
the first step in creating that meaningful connection."
