We're proud to say that each of our stores partners with a local shelter or rescue to run adoption centers and hold monthly adoption events. Our Store Leaders and associates work hard to drive adoptions and help put homeless pets in lifelong loving homes.

We recently donated $10,000 to Rainbow Therapy Group, a homegrown organization dedicated to teaching, training, and developing therapy dogs for those in need. The group regularly visits hospitals and nursing homes to support patients and bring smiles. RTG also brings their therapy dogs to local libraries for a special story time with pets and children.

Everyday Adoption Centers

In addition to our monthly adoption events, PetSmart also runs Everyday Adoption Centers. So far, our Everyday Adoption Centers have saved the lives of over 25,000 dogs and cats. PetSmart donates in-store space for each center, PetSmart Charities funds the building costs, and a local animal welfare organization runs the center, cares for the pets and manages all the adoptions. As a PetSmart Associate, you can help support the centers by donating to the PetSmart Associates United to Stop Euthanasia fund (P.A.U.S.E.) and by telling customers and friends about all the great pets they can adopt.
