Your heart need not be three sizes too small this holiday season. PetSmart® (NASDAQ: PETM) and Fetch for Pets!, creators of The Grinch by Dr. Seuss, a new line of pet holiday apparel and toys at PetSmart this season, are teaming up to help save the lives of homeless pets with “Pin It for Pets.”
From Dec. 1-16, pin a picture of your pet showing their holiday spirit with the #pinitforpetsmart hashtag on Pinterest, and PetSmart Charities will receive a $25 donation per photo, up to $25,000, to help save homeless pets.
“For every $25 given to PetSmart Charities, one homeless pet’s life can be saved through adoption,” said John Alpaugh, PetSmart’s chief marketing officer. “The holidays are about giving back, and this year, sharing a photo of your pet celebrating the season can give you more happiness by helping a homeless pet. More than 5 million pets have been adopted through the PetSmart Charities adoption centers located in every PetSmart store since 1994.”
One place to capture your pet’s holiday spirit is at the Santa Claws® photo events held at all PetSmart stores during the first three weekends in December. Pet parents can have a photo of their pet taken with Santa for just $9.95 with a PetPerks ® membership, and $5 from every photo package will be donated to participating local animal-welfare organizations – all the more reason to celebrate the season.“Fetch for Pets is so excited to bring Dr. Seuss’s classic characters from How The Grinch Stole Christmas to PetSmart and proud to be a part of the 'Pin It for Pets' initiative,” said Steven Shweky, president of Fetch for Pets!. “PetSmart’s Santa Claws photo events make it even easier to take a photo of your pet getting into the holiday spirit. Simply snap a photo, post with the #pinitforpetsmart hashtag and you’re done! It’s that easy to help save the lives of homeless pets.” Pet parents who want to “Pin It for Pets” and help save the life of a homeless pet can follow these easy steps:
