PetSmart National Adoption Weekend Feb. 22-24

PetSmart National Adoption Weekend Feb. 22-24

Four times per year, PetSmart Charities works with Animal Welfare Organizations across North America to host pet adoption events within PetSmart stores. Our organization is always pleased to be a part of these events and this coming adoption weekend will be a great opportunity for adopters to meet some of our animals.

Though we never know which animals will still be available for these weekends, we try to bring as many as possible to give them all a chance at a new home.

Please make sure to stop by and see us!

2019 Paw-Ker Run – June 2nd

Last year’s Paw-Ker Run was a huge success and participants were thrilled with this event. This year’s route encompasses many local hidden gems with surprises along the way.

A steak dinner will be offered at the end of the route at the Central Tavern in Pain Court around 4pm (included with registration fee).

Oh! Did we mention that thanks to our sponsors this year, the best poker hand will take home $500 cash?  Second best hand will be awarded $300 cash and $200 will go to the third best hand.

Great turn out for Turn OFF the Heat!

Great turn out for Turn OFF the Heat!

On July 6th we held an event in the PetSmart parking lot in Chatham to expose Chatham-Kent’s police, media and animal control to the conditions pets must endure when left in a hot vehicle.

After just 15 minutes and despite a breezy day, the interior temperature of the car rose to above 40 degrees Celsius. Participants clearly became very uncomfortable and mentioned that the only way they could stay in was that they knew they were able to get out after the 15 minutes.

Hard to imagine the level of stress a pet endures not knowing when the torture will stop! We are hoping that this event will be another reminder that there is no excuses for leaving a pet in a vehicle during hot and even warm days as the temperature inside a car rises very quickly even if in the shade or an a cooler day.

So, no more excuses, Turn OFF the Heat and save lives!


Our wish list…

We are loaded up with cats, kittens, bunnies and dogs and cleaning is just a constant part of our job. We are going through supplies very quickly and are hoping to get some of our “wanted” items donated to help us do the best job possible.

Consider dropping off even one or two items and it will be a big difference for all of us. Thank you!
