About

We are an independent, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that creates and supports programs that save the lives of homeless pets, raise awareness of companion animal welfare issues and promote healthy relationships between people and pets through:

- Adoption
- Spay/neuter initiatives
- Emergency relief programs
- Our Rescue Waggin'® program

We are the largest funder of animal-welfare efforts in North America. We have provided $134 million in grants and programs benefiting animal-welfare organizations and have helped save the lives of more than 4.5 million pets through our PetSmart Charities® Adoption Centers located inside every PetSmart® store. We have been able to accomplish this through the support of PetSmart, Inc. Since 1988, PetSmart, Inc.'s founders have made a conscious decision not to sell dogs and cats. Instead, they allocated space in their stores for pet adoption agencies to utilize to help address pet overpopulation.
