Petsmart Charities national pet adoption weekend

Petsmart Charities and its store locations nationwide will be holding its first adoption weekend of the year Friday through Sunday, Feb. 22 through 24.

Ten Lives Club cat rescue and adoption group has been a Petsmart Charities partner for 11 years and will be featuring their cats for adoption all weekend. They will have dozens of cats available for viewing throughout the three-day event with volunteers on hand ready to tell you more about each cat and the reason the cat entered their rescue program.

Adoption rates for their adult cats will be reduced to all potential adopters that meet adoption criteria.

As an incentive to get hard-to-place cats into new homes and out of shelter life, Ten Lives will receive a monetary reward from PetSmart Charities for each cat adopted during this event.

Adult volunteers are desperately needed to help at this three-day adopt-a-thon. If you can help at the event and wish to be trained to do adoption events to help find new homes for cats, all or text Amy, the Petsmart Cheektowaga Store Coordinator at 803-3715 or email her at amy.chapman83@yahoo.com.

Amy will personally do adoption training sessions or you can be there to shadow her and other volunteers for even a few hours that weekend to gain adoption experience yourself. For information on Ten Lives Club cat rescue and adoption group, go to tenlivesclub.com or contact them at 646-5577.
