In-Person Adoption Events to Take Place at Local PetSmart Stores March 6 – 12
Each year, more than five million pets enter animal shelters in need of loving homes. Today, pets are staying in shelters longer and many local shelters are struggling with stretched budgets and limited staffing. In partnership with PetSmart Charities SPCA of Texas will bring adoptable pets to three North Texas PetSmart locations in support of National Adoption Week, taking place March 6 – 12, 2023.
During the in-store event, SPCA of Texas invites pet lovers to make room in their homes for pets in need. PetSmart Charities also encourages people to consider adopting pets with special needs, like sweet Fonzi.
Fonzi is a sweet, gentle nine- year-old Terrier/Pit Bull mix. He has had bilateral TECABO surgery, which means he is deaf. Fonzi was adopted as a puppy but was returned to the shelter almost 400 days ago. He loves long walks, tennis balls, pets and kisses.

“National Adoption Week is an ideal opportunity to give a pet in need what they need most – people to love,” said Heidi Fulcher, Sr. Adoptions Grant Manager at PetSmart Charities. “Pets with special needs, such as those recovering from injuries or living with limb differences, trauma recovery or physical limitations make wonderful additions to families. These resilient pets have a lot to teach us about the joy and value of caregiving.”
PetSmart Charities National Adoption Week is a special time during the year. PetSmart stores feature adoptable pets to meet and cuddle in spacious areas, and staff and volunteers are on-hand to make introductions and answer questions. Potential pet parents can also learn about the products and services they’ll need for the best possible start with their new family members.
“Through the years, partnering with PetSmart Charities during PetSmart National Adoption Week has been quite successful, allowing us to place hundreds of beautiful animals in loving, forever homes,” said SPCA of Texas Senior Director of Lifesaving Initiatives Kelli Eaves. “We look forward to this event in North Texas bringing even more families together with pets that are just right for them, to make their homes complete.”
Comet recently was surrendered to the SPCA of Texas because her owner could no longer care for her and her sisters. Comet is a little shy, but such a sweet little girl who’s eager to be part of a loving family again. A little more than 1 ½ years old, Comet will thrive in a home with children aged 12 and older or adults only. As with any new family member, she will take a little time to acclimate to her new environment, but Comet longs to be a loving house cat once more.
