SPCA of Texas Connects Pets with Loving Homes During PetSmart Charities National Adoption Week November 8-14

Potential adopters are encouraged to consider older pets


(DALLAS, TX); November 8, 2021 – There is no better time to adopt a pet than ahead of the season of giving.

WHAT: The SPCA of Texas is proud to partner with PetSmart Charities® to bring adoptable pets to five PetSmart locations in support of National Adoption Week, taking place November 8 - 14, 2021.

As part of the in-store event, the SPCA of Texas invites potential pet owners to attend and meet adoptable pets in their area. People will be given opportunities to spend time with animals in need of loving homes to make connections, learn about their care and also explore the types of products and services they’ll need as pet parents going forward.  To view all available pets for adoption, please visit
"Helping our partners find perfect matches for the pets in their care helps us to fulfill our mission to bring people and pets together,” said Heidi Fulcher, Adoption Grants Manager at PetSmart Charities. “The pandemic taught us all just how much pets save us as much as we save them!”

While pets of all ages will be on-site, this National Adoption Week, PetSmart Charities is encouraging attendees to consider adopting adult or senior pets. Older pets can be overlooked, but often bring special benefits. They’ve been house-trained and are past the puppy stage involving chewing, frequent accidents and the need for constant attention and activity. Older pets can still learn new tricks but are calmer and have greater attention spans. Senior pets require less supervision and can bring a laid-back energy to their new families.

Adoptable cats and kittens will be available at the following PetSmart locations:

"I'm absolutely in LOVE with Kitty (formerly Kaleigh). I know her name isn't original at all but I just started calling her that until I could think of a name and it just stuck - it's so her! I've attached two photos - she's seriously the most beautiful kitty in the world! She loves to steal tennis balls and bones from her dog sister - she thinks she's a dog! She enjoys going for walks and car rides, snuggling with mom, bird watching, drinking from the sink, playing with her pipe cleaners and getting into mom's makeup in the mornings. I couldn't 'imagine life without her. She's the absolute best!"
