For pets. For people. For good.™
By investing in community partners that advocate and care for the well-being of pets and all who love them, life at both ends of the leash improves. It’s all thanks to our donors and partners.
PetSmart Charities, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization is PetSmart’s key philanthropic partner. We work in partnership with our in-store adoption program in all PetSmart® stores across the U.S. and Puerto Rico. PetSmart Charities delivers robust local and national grant funding that:
helps more than 2,500 animal welfare organizations matching people with pets through adoption.
improves access to affordable veterinary care for all
Supports families in times of crisis with access to food, shelter and disaster response
Each year, millions of generous PetSmart shoppers help pets in need by donating to PetSmart Charities using the PIN pads at checkout registers inside PetSmart® stores and online. While the average gift is $1.50, those donations have added up to more than $500 million in grants made since 1994. PetSmart Charities efficiently uses more than 90 cents of every dollar, and PetSmart Charities is the top funder of animal welfare in the U.S. and Canada. For more than 17 years, PetSmart Charities has earned a 4-star (the highest) rating from Charity Navigator.
