TORONTO, Jan. 30, 2014 /CNW/ - Don't spend this Valentine's Day at home 
waiting to get swept off your feet. Unconditional love is waiting for you at 
the PetSmart Charities of Canada National Adoption Weekend, sponsored by

are looking for a relaxed, cool cat or a youthful, energetic puppy, you're

With more than a hundred "matchmakers" (animal-welfare organizations) on-site 
at the more than 85 PetSmart stores in Canada, you can easily find the perfect 
pet to cuddle up with during National Adoption Weekend. 
"PetSmart Charities of Canada made a significant impact on pet homelessness 
last year through National Adoption Weekend events," said John DeFranco, 
president, PetSmart Charities of Canada. "Through our valued partnerships we 
hope to save even more lives this year and share the love adopted pets bring 
their families." 
PetSmart Charities will reward all participating adoption partners; each will 
receive $35 in adoption-reward grants for every pet adopted during the event.
