      Celebrate 5 Million Homeless Pets Adopted at PetSmart®

      Teach Your Pet How to High Five at June 16 High Five! Event in All Stores

      PetSmart® and PetSmart Charities® are hosting a High Five! party in every PetSmart store in North America to celebrate the 5-millionth pet adopted through the in-store adoption program since 1994. Pet parents and their pets are invited to join the celebration and take commemorative photos giving each other a high-five in a nod to the millions of homeless pets who have been saved through adoption. The party will include:

      • Pet trainers on hand from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. to teach each duo how to “high five” for a cell-phone picture that can be uploaded to Facebook by the attendee
      • A free bag of Purina® Beggin’ Strips for the first 50 attendees at each store

      Approximately 8 million pets end up in U.S. shelters each year and 4 million are euthanized, simply because they don’t have homes. PetSmart has been committed to stopping pet overpopulation through adoption since it was founded in 1987. Today, more than 1,100 pets are adopted through the PetSmart Charities Adoption Centers located inside every PetSmart store in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico. That’s 400,000 pets who find homes each year, accounting for about 10 percent of all U.S. adoptions. PetSmart and PetSmart Charities, which was founded in 1994, work with nearly 2,000 local animal-welfare organizations that offer in-store adoptions.

      Saturday, June 16, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

      All PetSmart stores in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico
