The city of Phoenix was named among the top adoption-“furriendlist” cities during PetSmart Charities’ National Adoption Weekend, May 3-5. Phoenix ranked sixth among the local adoption partners who found the most homes for adoptable pets.

National Adoption Weekend is arguably the largest pet adoption event of its kind, taking place in all 1,278 PetSmart stores in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico with more than 2,000 local adoption partners. More than 15,600 pets were adopted in total during the event.

In addition to thousands of pets finding their forever homes, PetSmart Charities rewarded local adoption partners with $35 in adoption-reward grants for every pet adopted at the event.
