SURREY — PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend is nearly here, and the Surrey location is taking part.
The event runs from Sept. 13 to 15 at 12101 72nd Ave. in Newton.
PetSmart and PetSmart Charities of Canada are joining forces with animal welfare agencies across the country to help homeless pets in need of a permanent home.
For every pet adopted over the weekend, PetSmart Charities will donate $5 in adoption-renewal grants back to participating adoption partners - the SARA Society in Surrey's case - to help even more homeless pets in the area.
Anyone interested in adopting a homeless pet is invited to drop by during business hours from Friday to Sunday, or check here or call 1-877-473-8762.
