In-Person Adoption Events to Take Place at Local PetSmart Stores July 11 – 17

July 7, 2022-Buffalo, NY — Each year, more than five million pets enter animal shelters in need of loving homes. Ten Lives Club is proud to partner with PetSmart Charities® to bring adoptable pets to PetSmart in support of National Adoption Week, taking place July 11 – 17, 2022.

National Adoption Week coincides with kitten season. It’s a time following peak breeding activity for cats, and many shelters are flooded with scores of kittens in need of loving homes. Many shelters invite volunteers to come and bottle-feed kittens to learn about the joys of parenting cats.

During the in-store event, Ten Lives Club invites potential pet parents to meet adoptable pets in their area. Opportunities will be given to spend time with animals in need of loving homes in a spacious area. Staff and volunteers will help potential adopters learn about caring for a pet and the types of tools, products and services they may need.

“National Adoption Week is an ideal opportunity to give a pet what they need most – people to love,” said Heidi Fulcher, Adoptions Grant Manager at PetSmart Charities. “Over the years, together with local partners such as ______ we’ve matched more than 10 million pets with loving homes. Globally, people say their pets are important family members that enhance their lives, too. That’s a win-win!”

PetSmart East Aurora- 123 Grey St.

PetSmart Cheektowaga- 1734 Walden Ave.
