“We asked our 1.9 million fans and pet parents on Facebook what gifts their
pets want for the holidays this year, and they voted for the top 10 pet
gifts,” said Laurie Taylor, PetSmart’s vice president of dog and cat
merchandising. “Their choices were as diverse as pets themselves, from festive
and unique toys to seasonal treats. We think the list provides a great
starting point to find gifts for the special pets in your life.”

The top 10 holiday gifts, as selected by PetSmart fans, are available in
stores and online, and are featured on PetSmart’s Facebook page at
www.facebook.com/PetSmart.
