Each year, about 7 million pets enter shelters across North America and some 3 million healthy, adoptable pets are euthanized. To save lives, PetSmart, The Adopt Spot, is holding its second National Adoption Weekend of the year at all of its 1,450 PetSmart stores across North America, May 13-15, where it expects to adopt out thousands of pets in a single weekend.

“During our last adoption weekend event, we set records with more than 25,000 pets adopted,” said Eran Cohen, chief customer experience officer, PetSmart. “We are excited to celebrate thousands of adoptions with our community and to launch new features like special adoption certificates, stickers and our always-available-no-matter-where-you-adopt free adoption kits.  We love pets and know they make us all better people. We are always thrilled to team up with PetSmart Charities and our animal welfare organization partners to bring such a staggering number of pets and people together in a single weekend – all to save lives.”

Last year PetSmart hit a major milestone, adopting out more than 500,000 pets in a single year and soon will achieve the 7 millionth life saved since starting its in-store adoption program with PetSmart Charities in 1994. Based on figures from 2015, for every minute a PetSmart store is open, two pets are adopted and about 1,400 pets’ lives are saved every day.
