Sharing a fun activity like a daily walk outside can establish a healthy routine for both pet parent and pet and creates a positive bonding experience while a pet becomes acclimated to their new environment," said Landis-Hanna.\nIf you're not ready for a pet right now, you can still help others find a home by taking a photo of an adoptable pet in-store and posting it on social media with #PicMe.\nThe other adoption weekends at PetSmart happen in June, September and November across Canada.
