PetSmart Charities® finds homes for over
400,000 homeless pets every year
Imagine if each of the 8 million people living in New York City was actually a dog or cat. That’s about the number of pets that will end up in shelters in North America this year. About half of those pets will be euthanized due to overpopulation. We lose some 11,000 adoptable pets every day.
That is why PetSmart has never sold dogs or cats. Instead, in 1994, PetSmart Charities®, a nonprofit animal-welfare organization, was created to help save the lives of homeless pets. Today, PetSmart Charities’ goal is to end pet homelessness for good. PetSmart Charities® has helped more than 6 million homeless pets find forever homes. Today, we help save more than 1,000 pets every day!
