PetSmart Charities' goal is to end pet homelessness for good

At PetSmart stores across the country, PetSmart services associates including groomers and trainers, helped prepare adoptable dogs. For example, PetSmart groomers-in-training utilized their training hours to help adoption partners beautify their dogs and ready them for their forever families. Also a new feature this past weekend, new pet parents received a special adoption certificate and, as always, also received the PetSmart Adoption Starter Kit with tips on how to transition a newly adopted pet into the home, as well as coupons for a free bag of pet food, free one-time services for training, veterinarian and Doggie Day Camp, as well as discounts on the essentials such as bowls, collars, beds and grooming – all totaling $400 in value ($325 CAD).
