Petco and Wellness® have teamed up to host events on April 14 & 15 to help shelter dogs and cats find loving homes.
Adopting a shelter animal is a great way to “green” your pet from the start! According the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), 5-7 million companion animals enter shelters every year of which 3-4 million are euthanized.
Petco™ is helping raise awareness for this issue during their monthly National Adoption Weekend starting April 14, 2012, right before Earth Day on April 22nd. All Petco store nationwide will host pet adoption events in hopes of placing these shelter animals in forever homes.
Wellness® will be sponsoring the weekend by offering adopting pet parents a coupon for a free small bag of dry dog or dry cat food (up to 6 lbs.).
The events will provide animal lovers across the nation the chance to meet many adoptable pets, learn about local animal adoption groups and inquire about the best ways to care for a new pet. Plus, adopters can find out about Petco’s Think Adoption First Care and Savings Program.
The events take place on Saturday and Sunday, April 14-15, 2012 from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. at all Petco locations. Check with local stores for exact times and details of specific adoption events. Visit www.petco.com/adoption for a location near you.
