Furkids, PetSmart Partner of National Pet Adoption Week
ATLANTA, GA – Adopt a feline friend – or two, or maybe even three – at one of the six Atlanta PetSmart metro locations during National Pet Adoption Week, which began on the 19th. July and will continue until Sunday.
Furkids Animal Rescue and Shelters and PetSmart Charities, an Atlanta-based nonprofit, place 150 adoptable cats and kittens at six Atlanta-area sites in search of their forever homes as kitten season begins . All adopters will receive a “Welcome Home” gift bag filled with starter food, litter, toys and a $ 10 PetSmart gift card, Furkids officials said in a press release.
