Adoption Centers Bring Cute Pets to Your Neighborhood

Find your new best friend — and save a life — with PetSmart Charities®

Adoption Centers Bring Cute Pets to Your NeighborhoodAdopt your next pet in a warm and welcoming environment. PetSmart Charities® Adoption Centers — in more than 1,600 PetSmart®  stores — provide a clean, quiet and convenient place to get to know your new furry friend.

The centers feature adorable cats and dogs from local animal welfare groups. When you adopt a pet at one of our centers, you will help your community and reap these rewards:

  • Savings. When you adopt, you’ll get an adoption kit from PetSmart with more than $475 in discounts on products and services.
  • Health. Adoptable pets are current on their vaccinations and are already spayed or neutered — saving you time and expense.
  • Trust. PetSmart Charities screens adoption partners to ensure they are qualified to arrange adoptions of healthy pets.
  • Inside information. Adoption representatives have cared for, and sometimes even fostered, the pets available. Ask them about a pet’s personality, medical history and habits to help you make the right choice.  

Types of adoption centers

Nearly every PetSmart store features a Cat Adoption Center where kittens and cats can be adopted during store hours. PetSmart Charities has managed cat centers like these for more than 2 decades — saving millions of cats’ lives.

More than a dozen PetSmart stores now feature Everyday Dog and Cat Adoption Centers. These larger centers have a playroom where you can meet-and-greet your potential new pet. These centers also free up space in local shelters, saving more lives. Find a PetSmart Charities Everyday Adoption Center near you.

Pets can also be adopted through special community and weekend events sponsored by PetSmart Charities.

When you adopt, you save a pet’s life — and enrich your own.
