PetSmart Hosts Pet Food Drive to Help Animal Welfare Partners Prepare for Emergencies

During National Pet Preparedness Month, PetSmart Shoppers are Invited to Donate Pet Food and Supplies to Help Local Animal Welfare Organizations Prepare for an Unexpected Emergency

June is National Pet Preparedness Month, and with hurricane season kicking off June 1 and wildfire season already underway in many parts of the country, PetSmart is launching its second annual pet food donation drive in stores across North America. The donation drive is designed to provide local animal welfare organizations with a stockpile of pet supplies in the event of an emergency or natural disaster.

“When natural disasters strike, thousands of pets and pet parents can be evacuated, displaced or left homeless. During National Pet Preparedness Month, and as we approach hurricane, flooding and wildfire seasons across North America, PetSmart and PetSmart Charities are poised and ready to help,” says Deborah Turcott, acting president of PetSmart Charities. “The emergency relief funding we’re able to provide, paired with the pet supplies generously donated by PetSmart customers, allows both of our organizations to holistically support animal welfare organizations working on the front lines to rescue and care for pets during unforeseen natural disasters. It’s important work that we’re so proud to be a part of.”

From Monday, June 3, through Sunday, July 7, PetSmart shoppers are invited to purchase and donate dog and cat food and supplies in stores which will be provided to nearby animal welfare organizations assisting pets in need within their communities.

To further support animal welfare organizations in their mission to help pets in need, customers can also make a donation to PetSmart Charities at the PIN pad located at the registers in all PetSmart stores year-round. As the leading funder of animal welfare, PetSmart Charities ensures that 90 cents of every dollar makes a direct impact in its communities. Since 1994, over $400 million in grant funds have been issued to partners that support pets and pet parents across North America and more than 330,000 pets have received emergency relief assistance. Already this year, PetSmart Charities has provided funding to support agencies on the front lines of the flooding impacting much of Canada.
