Saving lives every day

Pets are always inspiring us. From comfort to companionship to support, they always seem to know exactly what we need. That's why we formed PetSmart Charities—the leading organization that grants more money directly to helping pets in need than any other animal welfare group in North America, and has a focus on funding spay/neuter services. We're helping to save pets' lives through grants, adoptions and rescues—not sales. So far, we've saved over five million pets, giving them new homes and new opportunities to inspire pet parents. And we're not stopping there. When you join PetSmart, you'll join thousands of proud associates who volunteer and donate their time, money and supplies with PetSmart Charities to help save animals in need across the country. Take a look at our inspiring success stories. »
