PetSmart Charities®

We’re so excited to become a PetSmartCharities® grantee!

PetSmart Charities, Inc. is a nonprofit animal welfare organization with a mission to find lifelong, loving homes for all pets by supporting programs and thought leadership that brings people together. In addition to finding homes for almost 500,000 shelter pets each year through its in-store adoption program in all PetSmart stores across the U.S. and Puerto Rico, PetSmart Charities provides funding to non-profits aligned with its mission through four key areas of grant support: preventing Pet Homelessness; Helping Shelter Pets Throve; Supporting the Bond Between People and Pets; and Emergency Relief and Disaster Support. Each year, missions of generous PetSmart shoppers help pets in need by donating to PetSmart Charities using the pin pads at checkout registers inside PetSmart stores. In turn, PetSmart Charities efficiently uses 90 cents of every dollar donated and has become the leading funder of animal welfare in North America, donating about $300 million to date. PetSmart Charities, a 501(c)(3) organization, has received the Four Star Rating from Charity Navigator, an independent organization that reports on the effectiveness, accountability and transparence of nonprofits, for the past 14 years in a row — placing it amonthe the top one percent of charities rated by this organization.
