Where Your Money Goes

Donations to PetSmart Charities make a difference for homeless pets

Cat kisses man's nosePet homelessness is a huge problem. At PetSmart Charities®, we believe the solution is to get pets adopted and prevent unplanned litters.

What we do

So, we fund local animal welfare groups that build solid adoption and spay/neuter programs in communities throughout North America.

  • Adoptions: Through our adoption centers and events, PetSmart Charities has helped more than 6 million pets find forever homes—that’s 1 out of every 10 adoptions in North America.
  • Spay/ neuter: PetSmart Charities provides grants that help spay/neuter clinics and animal welfare groups to perform more surgeries and educate communities.

Your dollars have an impact

When you donate to PetSmart Charities, you’ll join a community of caring people who are actively involved in solving pet homelessness. What’s more, we make sure your gift is hard at work.

So many happy “tails”

There’s another important number to consider, but it’s impossible to add up. 

Every story from someone who has adopted through PetSmart Charities celebrates the love that pets bring to their families. That’s our real measure of success.
