Purr-fect weekend for pet adoption
Langley Animal Protection Services is partnering with the PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend this Friday to Sunday.
LAPS will have cats and dogs on site at the Langley PetSmart location (20015 Langley Bypass) starting Friday (Sept. 13) and running through until Sunday (Sept. 15).
PetSmart and PetSmart Charities of Canada are joining forces with animal welfare agencies across the country to help homeless pets find homes. And for every pet adopted over the weekend, PetSmart Charities of Canada will donate $35 in adoption-reward grants back to the participating adoption partners.
“So far this year, in partnership with animal welfare organizations, we have helped find forever homes for more than 6,000 pets in Canada,” said John DeFranco, president of PetSmart Charities of Canada.
“By focusing our efforts in local communities through National Adoption Weekend, we hope to achieve the greatest impact and save lives of thousands more homeless pets.”
“By donating space in PetSmart stores nationwide, we are committed to working with PetSmart Charities of Canada and animal welfare organizations to find homes for deserving pets in need,” said Rob Smith, regional director, PetSmart Canada.
