Dog and cat owners do have one thing in common and that's knowing that there is nothing better than being loved.
This weekend between November 9th and 11th, PetSmart locations all across Canada are hosting what they call a National Adoption Weekend, which means that there are going to be a ton of new pets looking for a forever home.
PetSmart presents the adoption event four times a year, once every season. While this November event will be the last of 2018, the National Adoption event that took place in September broke their adoption record with over 32,000 successful adoptions.
According to PetSmart, more than 1,200 pets are available for adoption during the adoption weekend. Whether you're looking for a dog, puppy, kitten, cat, or another small pet, various PetSmart locations will be the place to go this weekend to find a new companion.
Even if there isn't any extra room at home for a new four-legged family member, you can actually still help bring attention to the adoption event!
PetSmart is asking people to come into the stores anyway to take a photo or selfie with an animal and share it using the #PicMe hashtag. The goal of the hashtag is to inspire people to come in and visit, as well as to attract people who may not know about the event who are looking to adopt!
Now is the perfect time to open your heart and your home to a new furry BFF. Considering the cold months are coming up, adopting a pet means you'll have a cuddle buddy to weather those classic Canadian winter snowstorms.
National Adoption Weekend is running from November 9th to 11th, so mark your calendars! You can find out more about the National Adoption Weekend events in your area here.
