Nearly 7 million pets end up in shelters every year in North America. About 3 million never find homes and face euthanasia – that’s about 11,000 adoptable pets a day.

That’s why we never sell dogs or cats at PetSmart. Instead, PetSmart Charities® was created in 1994 to help save the lives of homeless pets.

Join us to help save 1,300+ homeless pets every day through adoption.
