PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend happens September 13 – 15. More than 2,000 adoption partners are taking part in the event at 1,300 PetSmart stores in the US, Canada and Puerto Rico (and Tucson).
The hope is to connect thousands of deserving pets with loving homes. PetSmart Charities, Inc. stated, “By focusing our efforts in local communities to achieve the greatest impact, PetSmart Charities has become a leader in pet adoptions by finding homes for more than 5.5 million dogs and cats since 1994.”
Locally, you can find Tucson Cold Wet Noses at the PetSmart on Broadway @ Pantano, Saturday – Sept. 14 – from 10 am to 4 pm. (7727 E Broadway Blvd Tucson, Arizona 85710) – in the back of the store. Learn more about Bruce.
Southern Arizona Greyhound Adoption (SA Greys) will be at PetSmart at Thornydale/River @ Orange Grove on Sept. 13 & 14 from 11 am to 1 pm. (3850 W River Rd)

Also at PACC they are having a black cat and black dog special for the weekend starting Friday the 13th, adoption fees will be waived for every black pet! A $15 licensing fee for spayed or neutered dogs still applies.
A crisis for senior pets (5+) is happening now at PACC. Five is not even old. Check out the 5+ page on Facebook and if a 5+ year old dog is not your style, share that page with someone who prefers a dog who has probably lived in a home and will be so appreciative to live in another.
PACC is open from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. on the weekends. PACC is located at 4000 N. Silverbell Road.
While not a PetSmart event, All-American Bully Buddies Rescue will be at Starbucks at Cortaro and I-10 from 7 am to 10:30 am on Saturday, Sept. 14. The address is 5970 W. Arizona Pavilions. You can find more info on their Facebook page.
