7 million pets enter shelters every year and sadly, 3 million never find homes. Petsmart Charities has set out to make that statistic a thing of the past. The goal of Petsmart charities is to find loving homes for every pet. With every adoption event, they get closer to that goal. PetSmart Charities finds loving homes for more than 500,000 dogs and cats each year. More than 3,000 animal welfare organizations partner with PetSmart Charities to save even more pets.
