PETSMART ® STORES ACROSS THE UNITED STATES, PUERTO RICO AND CANADA DONATE GOODS TO LOCAL ANIMAL WELFARE AGENCIES

PetSmart Among the Top U.S. Companies in ‘Green’ Rankings According to Newsweek

PetSmart® (NASDAQ: PETM) announced the launch of its hard goods donation program across its more than 1,200 stores in the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada. The program, supported by non-profit Good 360, will save approximately 3,000 dumpsters of usable cat and dog products annually from going into landfills and benefit over 900 animal welfare organizations in local communities. Through the program, tested in August 2011 with ten PetSmart stores and expanded to a 140-store pilot in February 2012, over 1.2 million items have been donated to-date valuing over $990,000.

Anguilla Animal Rescue Foundation (AARF), a 100% volunteer shelter located in the only veterinary clinic on the Caribbean island of Anguilla 140 miles from Puerto Rico, is a beneficiary of this program. The shelter was matched with two Puerto Rico stores, secured storage space and air transportation both free of charge and now receives donated products brought from Puerto Rico to their shelter on Anguilla monthly.

“Being on a small island, we are somewhat isolated so donations of the items needed to help support the cats and dogs at our shelter can be challenging,” said Gayle Enzel, Board member of AARF. “Thanks to the PetSmart team, we will now have a more consistent inventory of beds, toys, leashes and other items needed to take care of pets at our shelter while they wait for their forever homes.”
