San Diego, CA (PRWEB) March 06, 2012
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 March 10, 2011 in hopes of placing these shelter animals in forever homes. The event will provide animal lovers across the nation with an opportunity to meet many adoptable pets, learn about local animal adoption groups and inquire about the best ways to care for a new pet. Hill’s® will be sponsoring the weekend by offering adopting parents a free can of wet dog or cat food along with $10 off any bag of Science Diet dry dog or cat food.
Petco is also pleased to announce their revamped Adoption site. The refreshed petco.com/adoption features an adoption wall where pet parents can share their adoption success stories with others. Petco and the Petco Foundation work with and support approximately 7,500 local animal welfare groups across the country to help find homes for more than 250,000 animals through in-store adoption events every year.
