Looking to add a pet to your family this spring? PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend starts today and runs through Sunday, May 6.

Thousands of healthy pets are up for adoption by more than 2,000 local animal welfare organizations in all PetSmart stores in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.

Your pet adoption will benefit these local shelters and rescue agencies, including Maricopa County Animal Care & Control (MCACC), which operates an adoption center inside the PetSmart store at 4380 N. Miller Road in Scottsdale. MCACC will receive $35 in adoption-reward grants from PetSmart Charities for every pet they adopt during the event.

“Adoption is one of the key ways to save pets and end pet homelessness, not to mention enrich our own lives with a loving companion,” said Susana Della Maddalena, executive director of PetSmart Charities, Inc., in a press release.

“We are excited to be part of PetSmart Charities’ National Adoption Weekend and have the opportunity to showcase our wonderful adoptable pets looking for their forever home,” added Dr. Rodrigo Silva of MCACC.

Animal-welfare organizations in all 1,210 PetSmart stores in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico will participate in National Adoption Weekend. The events are sponsored by PetSmart, Purina® Pro Plan® and Tidy Cats®.

Hours are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. today and Saturday, May 5; and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday, May 6. To learn about the adoption center’s fees and guidelines, visit or call 877-473-8762.
