Four times each year, PetSmart teams up with PetSmart Charities and more than 3,000 animal welfare organizations on National Adoption weekends to bring adoptable pets into PetSmart stores to find them the forever homes they deserve. While often referred to as National Adoption “Weekend,” the adoption efforts span the entire week with the majority of the pets—23,000 on average—adopted between Friday and Sunday. PetSmart, The Adopt Spot, has helped to facilitate over 7.3 million adoptions to date, more than any other brick-and-mortar organization. For every 30 seconds a PetSmart store is open, a pet is adopted, totaling 1,400 pets’ lives saved every day.New pet parents who wish to share their heartwarming adoption stories and photos with their new four-legged family member are encouraged to use the hashtag #iadopted on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
