Just in time for Memorial Day, PetSmart has launched a new line of services aimed at honoring the service and sacrifice made by the nation’s men and women in the military. $1 from each Patriotic Top Dog Grooming package, Patriotic Puppy Playtime Pet Training session and Patriotic Treat Time in the PetsHotel® will go to Canine Companions for Independence. PetSmart for Patriots is a joint endeavor between PetSmart and Canine Companions for Independence, in support of Canine Companions’ Wounded Veterans Initiative to help partner assistance dogs with the military veterans who need them.

“These patriotic in-store services are another way that PetSmart is able to say thank you to the men and women who bravely serve in our military," said Bruce Thorn, PetSmart Executive Vice President of Store Operations, Services and Supply Chain. “Our partnership with Canine Companions for Independence means that more wounded military veterans will be able to access information on life changing assistance dogs. To be able to have an assistance dog that loves you unconditionally and is able to help you live a better life, is priceless."

$1 from the sale of each patriotic package will go toward the Canine Companions for Independence Wounded Veterans Initiative. Patriotic services will be available in-store May 22 through July 6 and will include:

Patriotic Top Dog Package: PetSmart’s popular Top Dog Add-On Grooming packages will now include a Patriotic option including patriotic bandanas and collar charms, as well as a signature Apple Pie scent.
