Adoption Events Celebrate Pets

Events offer wide variety of adoptable pets

Be prepared for wagging tails, wet noses and unconditional love when you attend a PetSmart Charities™ Adoption Event.

Nearly every PetSmart® store has adoptable pets available each weekend. Many centers have both dogs and cats available. Please use our store locator to find a location near you. Be sure to call ahead to confirm availability.

Our additional Adoption Events provide great opportunities for potential adopters to see a wider variety of adoptable pets:

  • National Adoption Weekends. On average, more than 15,000 pets find homes every time PetSmart Charities hosts a National Adoption Weekend.  Held 4 times a year, these events showcase adoptable pets in every PetSmart store in the United States and Canada, usually featuring several adoption organizations at each store.
  • Community adoption events. PetSmart Charities provides grants that help team up many local adoption groups to feature a wide variety of adoptable pets all in one place. These events help save the lives of thousands of pets each year.
