Distribution Center associates give back

Pets inspire us to always do more. That's why our Distribution Center associates volunteer to help animals and people in the community. Whether it's caring for pets in shelters, participating at adoption events, or saving the lives of homeless pets, the dedication never ends. That's the level of passion that fills our PetSmart associates.

DCs Distributing Love

  • When associates from DC38 learned domestic abuse victims were turning away from shelters because they couldn't take their pets with them, our passionate associates stepped in to help. They recently volunteered at a local women's shelter, pouring concrete, putting up fences and building dog runs and animal houses. Now, the women and their pets have a safe place to call home.
  • In support of a local Cancer Research Center, our Distribution Center associates recently donated pet cages to nearby hotels, so patients never have to leave their pet behind.
  • Our associates proudly support the PetSmart Charities Rescue Waggin'® program, dedicated to relocating homeless pets from shelters in overpopulated communities to adoption centers in areas where dogs and puppies are in high demand. Find out more at rescuewaggin.org
  • Twice a year, our distribution centers take part in our Just a Buck campaign, selling discounted merchandise to stores and giving all the proceeds to charity. We also donate hundreds of goods to shelters and veterinary clinics to help animals in need.

Whether you join us through a store, a distribution center, or our Store Support Group, you'll join hundreds of associates dedicated to giving back to the community.
