CCHS at Petsmart Charities National Adoption Event

Thursday, May 2, 2013

JAMESTOWN, NY – Thursday, May 02, 2013 – The Chautauqua County Humane Society will be at the Lakewood PetSmart on Friday, May 3 from 6 to 9 p.m., Saturday, May 4 and Sunday, May 5 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to participate in PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend. PetSmart Charities will give all participating animal-welfare organizations $35 in adoption-reward grants for every pet adopted during this event.

When you adopt, you save more than one pet’s life. Adoption makes room at the shelter, so more pets can come in and stay longer, giving them a better chance at finding a home. More than 2,000 animal-welfare organizations will participate in the PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend, May 3-5 in every PetSmart® store in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.

“The successful adoption stories we hear each National Adoption Weekend prove the work PetSmart Charities is doing makes a difference in the lives of homeless pets,” said Jan Wilkins, executive director, PetSmart Charities, Inc. “Through our collaboration with thousands of adoption partners across North America, we can focus on the pet homelessness issue at a local level and achieve the greatest impact.”

PetSmart Charities, Inc. is a nonprofit animal welfare organization that saves the lives of homeless pets. More than 400,000 dogs and cats find homes each year through our adoption program in all PetSmart stores and our signature adoption events. PetSmart Charities grants more money to directly help pets in need than any other animal welfare group in North America, with a focus on funding spay/neuter programs that help communities solve pet overpopulation. PetSmart Charities is a 501(c)(3) organization, legally independent from PetSmart, Inc.

 

The Chautauqua County Humane Society is a non-profit that is not part of any government organization and its mission to care for animals by promoting adoptions, preventing cruelty and providing education relies solely on public support.
