We never sell dogs or cats at PetSmart. PetSmart Charities Everyday Adoption Centers—in more than 1,600 PetSmart® stores—provide a clean, quiet, and convenient place to get to know your new best friend. We’ve joined forces with over 3,000 animal welfare organizations to help save pet lives. Since 1994, we have granted more than $267 million to help save homeless pets. To reduce pet overpopulation, we have subsidized more than 1.4 million spay or neuter surgeries since 2009. We know that when families face food insecurity, so do their pets. 1 in 8 people may face food insecurity, so our collaborations with partners such as Feeding America allow us to equip local food distribution events with pet food to help feed all members of the community—including our beloved pets.
As many as 50 million US pets don’t receive necessary veterinary care. Difficulties in obtaining care for our pets can range from financial hardship to transportation/location difficulties, so our goal is to help outfit our partners with grants that can help them take care of the pets in their community. A critical pillar of PetSmart Charities is assisting individual incidents where pets are impacted by man-made or natural causes.
