Celebrate the Season by Adopting a Pet at PetSmart Charities(R) National Adoption Weekend, November 15-17

Celebrate the Season by Adopting a Pet at PetSmart Charities(R) National 
Adoption Weekend, November 15-17 
PHOENIX, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 10/31/13 --  As we head into the
holiday season, we find ourselves reflecting on what we're most
thankful for. Anyone who has adopted a pet often puts their companion
at the top of that list -- and it's mutual for that deserving cat or
dog. Luckily, if you're interested in adding a new four-legged friend
to your family, you can do so at the PetSmart Charities National
Adoption Weekend, Nov. 15-17 at all Puerto Rico PetSmart(R) stores.  
More than 3,000 adoption partners will be on-site at all 1,300
PetSmart stores to help you find your perfect match, whether it's a
dog, cat, puppy, kitten, mixed-breed or purebred. 
PetSmart Charities works to reduce the pet homelessness population
every day. All of its programs, including National Adoption Weekend,
are made possible through donations. Just $25 saves the life of a
healthy, adoptable pet and funds programs that give these pets a
second chance. If you're not able to adopt a pet, you can support
PetSmart Charities by making a donation online, by email at
gifts@petsmartcharities.org or via phone at 1-800-745-9460. 
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. National Adoption Weekends are
sponsored by PetSmart, Purina(R) Pro Plan(R) and Tidy Cats(R) (MAXX
Scoop(R) in Canada).
