Happy Friday

Happy Friday everyone!  This seems like a great day to share an article that made me very happy.  I hope it will brighten your day too.  PetSmart Charities has adopted their 5 millionth pet! 

Because millions of adoptable cats and dogs are euthanized every year PetSmart chooses not to sell cats and dogs in their stores.  Instead they allow local rescue groups to use the space for adoptable pets.  This is personal for me, not only because I support adopting rather than buying, but because our Milo came from a PetSmart.  It’s a nice feeling to read that 4,999,999 other pets like Milo (okay maybe not quite like Milo, he’s definitely an original) have been saved through the program. 

I hope this brightens your day, and gets your weekend off to a happy start like it has mine.  And I’d love to hear about it if any of you have a fur kid adopted through PetSmart.

  3. I think it's wonderful what Petsmart does. I like going on Saturdays to see the dogs available for adoption. We have a dog, but he's not from the Petsmart program. My daughter wishes we could adopt every one of those dogs!

    1. I always like to stop and see the dogs when we go in too. I think it's always good for them to get the extra attention from people. I know how your daughter feels, I always find myself wishing we could take them all home too.

  4. my daughter-in-law works for Banfield Hospital...the one that's part of Petsmart? She's an avid fan of adoptions, and NOT buying from the puppy stores. Good news here!

    1. I think that could be a fun place to work. Glad she's a fellow fan of adopting, not shopping. :-)
