Adopt a dog or cat for free this weekend at PetSmart

Fee-waived pet adoptions are taking place this weekend, Sept. 13-15, as the Lake County Animal Shelter is celebrating its new partnership with PetSmart Charities.

Dogs and cats from the Lake County Animal Shelter will be featured at PetSmart at Lake Square Mall, 10401 U.S. Highway 441 in Leesburg from 2-6 p.m. today, and 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, Sept.14, and Sunday, Sept.15.

All adopters will receive a coupon book from PetSmart featuring discounts on pet supplies and services for their new family member.

“We are excited about this new opportunity with PetSmart to help us increase adoptions, and find more homes for homeless pets,” Whitney Boylston, director of Lake County Animal Services, says in a press release. “Moving forward, we plan to continue monthly adoption promotions at the Leesburg store.”

More than 25,000 pets find loving homes during quarterly National Adoption Weekend events; that’s over 100,000 lives transformed through pet adoption at PetSmart stores across North America. Since 1994, through its partnership with nearly 4,000 humane societies, SPCAs and pet rescues across North America, PetSmart Charities has helped more than 8.5 million pets to find loving homes via its in-store adoption program in over 1,600 PetSmart® stores.
