Are you looking for a little companionship in the form of a furry little kitten? If so, we've got great news for you! A PetSmart store just outside the city is taking part in the largest national pet adoption day of the year this Saturday with a Toronto kitten adoption event of their own.
PetSmart North Whitby is hosting a special one-day adoption event this Saturday, Aug. 17, 2019. The event aims to give forever homes to several pets, including 8-week-old kittens, bunnies, guinea pigs and adult cats.
According to PetSmart's website, over 25,000 pets find homes during National Adoption Weekend events. The events are held four times per year, which means that 100,000 lives are transformed through pet adoption at PetSmart stores across North America each year.
“Help us make Aug. 17 the largest national pet adoption day of the year! Adoption Ambassadors will be in stores to help pet parents get started with their new pet, and every adoption comes with a free adoption kit. Check with your local store for details,” the retail chain tweeted on Thursday.
