It’s been a while now since we attended BlogPaws and worked with PetSmart on building a business blog.  Even though many months have passed since we presented our build a business blog case study at BlogPaws with PetSmart we still keep in touch with the good folks at PetSmart.

PetSmart recently sent us a nice little gift along with some updates on their upcoming news and events including their 25 year anniversary and their national adoption weekend.

PetSmart Turns 25!

Stetson asked what is a 25 year anniversary?  I told him 25 human years equals 175 dog years!  Stetson thought WOW!!! PetSmart is old!!!

PetSmart Turns 25
Stetson say: “PetSmart is 175 years old in doggy years!”

PetSmart had an awesome 25th Anniversary Sweepstakes, but unfortunately I’m about a month too late announcing it to you guys.  Sorry 🙁  I’ll do better getting my announcements out.  The good news is I’m much more timely with this second announcement…

PetSmart National Adoption Weekend

Is it time for you to adopt a puppy?  If so next weekend September 14th-16th, 2012 may be your perfect opportunity because it’s PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend!

If you’ve been thinking about getting a second dog or perhaps you’re just thinking about getting your first then head on down to PetSmart next weekend and support your local animal rescues.  More than 2,000 animal welfare organizations in all 1,250 PetSmart stores will provide opportunities for pet adoptions to find lifelong, loving homes for thousands of pets.

Even though we’re not currently looking to get a third dog or even a first cat we still plan on heading down to PetSmart to say hello to some of the dogs, cats, and hardworking rescue volunteers.

So what are your plans for next weekend?  Are you thinking about adopting a puppy, dog, kitty, or cat?  If so, head on down to your local PetSmart and say hello to the rescue volunteers and adoptable pets!

  1. So true. While waiting to be rescued puppy a lot, very important to get a second puppy.

  2. I agree! I’ll be stopping by our local PetSmart to say hi to the pups and to make a few donations to the pet rescues and shelters.

  3. Hi Haopee,

    Yeah, I just have to free up some of my time…maybe it’s time to quit the day job 🙂 I’ll stop by your page and take a look. However, I work mostly with puppies and don’t experience too many problems with serious aggression with the puppies we train.

    Take care,

  4. Good for them on hosting a national adoptathon! Hoping loads of animals find their forever homes next weekend!

  5. Well, at least you got one thing right. ^^ So don’t worry, I’m sure you’ll get the announcements right, eventually.

    By the way, I am currently having aggression issues with two of my dogs. And I was hoping that you could come by our page and help us with it.

    I would have loved getting professional help for it but we don’t have those in our country.

    Thanks and have a great Sunday.

    Huggies and Cheese,
