PHOENIX -- May 7, 2014

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 the country, dogs, puppies and cats will
visit retirement centers, 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
