Six Cities Will Be #InspiredByPets as Dogs and Cats Offer People Tail-Wagging
TORONTO, May 7, 2014 /CNW/ - Cramming for finals. Laundry. Running errands.
Mondays. These typical, everyday happenings will be infused with four-legged
inspiration and a bit of fun when PetSmart(® )(NASDAQ: PETM) and a few furry
friends hop aboard the first-ever Inspiration Waggin'(TM) bus and embark on a
six-city tour in the United States and Canada.
As the truck makes its way across North America, dogs, puppies and cats will
visit retirement centres, university campuses and local spots so people can
benefit from a wagging tail and some unconditional love to make even the most
regular of days better. The Inspiration Waggin' will make stops in:
-- Los Angeles - May 9
-- Phoenix - May 12
-- Dallas - May 14
-- Chicago - May 16
-- Toronto - May 20
-- New York City - May 22
"Each day, my dog Sedona inspires me to be a better person. The Inspiration
Waggin' tour is about celebrating pets like Sedona and delighting the families
who love them," said John DeFranco, PetSmart Canada president. "At PetSmart,
we're driven by the moments in which pets can teach us how to enjoy life or
remind us to do it every day - whether that means being more active, more
patient or even just more playful."
