WHAT: With 5-7 million companion animals entering shelters every year, Petco™ is helping to raise awareness for this issue during their monthly National Adoption Weekend. Every Petco store will host pet adoption events the weekend of November 12, 2011. Iams® is sponsoring the weekend by providing over $15 worth of dry, wet, and treat dog or cat food coupons (while supplies last), as well as a $35 off rebate on the pet’s first vet visit to those who adopt a dog or cat.
The events will provide animal lovers across the nation the chance to meet many adoptable pets, learn about local animal adoption groups and inquire about the best ways to care for a new pet. Plus, adopters can find out about Petco’s Think Adoption First Care and Savings program, which provides all pet parents who adopt additional savings on food and supplies for their new pet.
In addition, potential pet parents can learn more about Iams Home 4 the Holidays adoption program, which has helped over 5.7 million families experience the joy of pet adoption. This year the goal is to adopt 1.5 million pets, through events like Petco’s National Adoption Weekend, and to donate five million bowls of food to shelter pets nationwide.
WHEN: Saturday and Sunday, November 12 - 13, 2011 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.
