Meet the Operation Kindness animals at PetSmart during National Adoption Week!

Operation Kindness I PetSmart National Adoption Week

It’s kitten season, when scores of vulnerable kittens and cats are flooding into already full shelters, looking for people to love. that’s why we are proud to partner with PetSmart Charities® to bring adoptable pets to the our PetSmart Everyday Adoption Center as well as local PetSmart stores across North Texas in support of the 30th Anniversary National Adoption Week, taking place July 15 – 21, 2024.

PetSmart Charities National Adoption Week in July coincides with kitten season, referring to the annual boom of kittens following peak breeding season for cats. Kittens are particularly vulnerable, and many shelters work overtime to meet their needs for care and feeding.  During the in-store events, we’re inviting all pet-lovers to come by and meet adoptable pets and spread the word in support of finding families for as many pets as possible during July National Adoption Week.

During National Adoption Week, potential pet parents can interact with adoptable pets from local animal welfare organizations at PetSmart stores across the country. With staff and volunteers on hand to help potential adopters, visitors can spend time with the cats, dogs, kittens and puppies we’ll have available.

“We are thrilled to partner with PetSmart Charities this month to help even more Operation Kindness dogs and cats find loving homes,” said Ed Jamison, CEO of Operation Kindness. “The PetSmart Everyday Adoption Center and our relationship with PetSmart stores across North Texas makes it easy to take home an Operation Kindness animal with everything you need for a happy start.”

“For 30 years now, PetSmart Charities and local partners have been helping pets find people to love,” said Heidi Marston, director of Pet Placement Initiatives at PetSmart Charities. “Shelters across the country are full, and pets of all ages, breeds and temperaments are looking for their families. This National Adoption Week, we are putting a special focus on our feline friends with scores of kittens entering shelters & rescues in need of adoption – and we can’t do it without your support! If you have room in your heart and home, please consider adopting or fostering!”
