(DALLAS, TX; WAXAHACHIE, TX); July 12, 2022 – Each year, more than five million pets enter animal shelters in need of loving homes. The SPCA of Texas is proud to partner with PetSmart Charities® to bring adoptable pets to North Texas PetSmarts in support of National Adoption Week, taking place July 11 – 17, 2022.
National Adoption Week coincides with kitten season. It’s a time following peak breeding activity for cats, and many shelters are flooded with scores of kittens in need of loving homes. Many shelters invite volunteers to come and bottle-feed kittens to learn about the joys of parenting cats.
During the in-store event, the SPCA of Texas invites potential pet parents to meet adoptable pets in their area. Opportunities will be given to spend time with animals in need of loving homes in a spacious area. Staff and volunteers will help potential adopters learn about caring for a pet and the types of tools, products and services they may need.
“Partnering with PetSmart Charities for PetSmart National Adoption Week allows us to find even more animals loving homes,” said Kelli Eaves, Senior Director of Lifesaving Initiatives for the SPCA of Texas. “We are proud to have found hundreds of animals new families during our participation in PetSmart National Adoption Week events over the years, and we look forward to making this event a huge success.”
To view all available pets for adoption, please visit www.spca.org/adopt. Regular adoption fees are $150 for puppies and kittens aged 0-6 months and $75 for adult dogs and cats aged 6 months or older.

“National Adoption Week is an ideal opportunity to give a pet what they need most – people to love,” said Heidi Fulcher, Adoptions Grant Manager at PetSmart Charities. “Over the years, together with local partners such as the SPCA of Texas we’ve matched more than 10 million pets with loving homes. Globally, people say their pets are important family members that enhance their lives, too. That’s a win-win!”
