Feb 22nd-24th is National Pet Adoption Weekend at PetSmart

PetSmart is holding its National Pet Adoption weekend and is partnering with local rescue shelters to help their rescues find a permanent home.

Rebel Rescue and 8 other partners are teaming up with PetSmart to find a home for almost 90 pets in need.

Both cats and dogs will be at the local PetSmart Friday through Sunday.

Rebel Rescue will also offer reduced pricing on their adoption fees, with the other shelters providing similar offers as well.

“When they give them that lifetime forever home, it brings hope, you know what I mean, back to the animals,” explained Christy Bear of Rebel Rescue. “That’s one of the biggest rehabilitation factors of rehabilitating an abandoned animals, is to mitigate their fear and build hope and confidence in them. And, really the quickest way to do that is when they get another home.”

PetSmart and their partners will also offer rabies vouchers and other assorted items as an incentive for residents to adopt their new best friend.

The nine participating local shelters are:

Rebel Rescue
DOCPAC
Victoria Adopt a Pet
Saving Animal Lives 24/7
Goliad Pet Adoptions
Pet Adoptions of Cuero
Pappy’s Rescue
Calhoun County Humane Society
Victoria Trap Neuter Return
