What We Do

The Problem
Every year an estimated 7 million pets enter shelters. Nearly 3 million never find homes. We can change that.
The goal of PetSmart Charities® is to find a lifelong, loving home for every pet. We get closer every day with adoption events and centers, pet rescue programs and support for spay/neuter efforts.
How We Help
$240 million granted to help communities save pets' lives and reduce pet overpopulation
Pet homelessness is a huge problem. At PetSmart Charities®, we believe the solution is to get pets adopted and prevent unplanned litters.
So, we fund local animal welfare groups to address these two issues. Together, we’re working to end pet homelessness.
Save Lives
Number of pets' lives saved over time 2005-2014
PetSmart Charities® helps find forever homes for pets—to date, we’ve helped more than 6 million pets. That’s 1 out of every 10 Pet adoptions in North America.
What’s more, every story from PetSmart Charities' adopters celebrates the love that pets bring to their families. That’s our real measure of success.
Spay/Neuter
1.2 Million spay/neuter surgeries subsidized since 2009

PetSmart Charities® knows that pet overpopulation is a problem with a cure.

By funding more spay/neuter services, we help prevent unplanned litters. Our programs reduce pet overpopulation from the start.
ADOPT A PET

PetSmart Charities finds homes for more than 500,000 dogs and cats each year. The newest member of your family could be just a click away.
