PetSmart is more than just a place to pick up treats and toys for our furry friends. The go-to pet shop is keen on giving back to the very shelters and charitable organizations that help to keep them in business. And this includes everything from preventing pet homelessness to providing emergency relief for those abandoned animals in weather crisis and natural disaster.

And if you’re in search of the perfect charity to contribute to, and you love pets (who doesn’t?!), this may be just the one for you. With a core mission of ending pet homelessness and building families by connecting pets and people, PetSmart Charities has contributed more than $290 million to date to local animal welfare partners. And now you can help, too.

Seriously…this is all the things that hit close to home, and make our hearts go “awwwwww!

But, how do they get the funds, you ask? It’s simple — PetSmart shoppers have contributed millions to their charities by using the pin pads at registers! And this season, ninety-cents of every customer dollar spent is going to PetSmart Charities to support its mission of finding lifelong, loving homes for all pets. And we are loving this cause.

Not planning on visiting a PetSmart location anytime soon? No worries! You can totally make a donation online, here.

There’s nothing better than knowing that by taking care of your own pet, you’ll be helping others survive, too. So, get out those wallets and spread the love this holiday season.
