PetSmart has never sold dogs or cats. Instead, in 1994, PetSmart Charities®, a nonprofit animal-welfare organization, was created to help save the lives of homeless pets. Today, PetSmart Charities’ goal is to end pet homelessness for good. PetSmart Charities® has helped more than 6 million homeless pets find forever homes. Today, we help save more than 1,000 pets every day!
