I am very happy about the money that trickles through Petsmart Charities and actually makes it to the local shelters, but I think with a little research a person wanting to donate money could find a local non-profit (all-volunteer, non-profit 501 c-3 organization) that actually would utilize more money directly to the care of shelter animals.

As a volunteer who used to volunteer at a local Petsmart, there is a huge disconnect between what seems to be the mission of Petsmart Charities and the lower echelon Petsmart Corporate Personnel. Their priorities do not seem to be focused on the well being of the rescue/shelter animals or the volunteers.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Treat the rescues animals and volunteers better. Provide better adoption facilities and rescue animal friendly management.

As a volunteer for a rescue at a Petsmart store I have seen how the store management oppresses the rescue personnel. The volunteers were not trained by the store and treated like second class citizens!
At first i loved going in to clean and play with the animals but in a few weeks i dreaded it.
It was so deflating, i didnt encourage my friends to volunteer at that store. I dont know why the volunteers were not welcomed with open arms if they are so committed to the adoption community. Im now convinced Petsmart Charities is only in effect because it ultimately makes them more money than if they did not promote it. I dont even shop there anymore as a result of my experience.

I can't believe this fabulous charity doesn't have a review yet! This month, they adopted out their 5 MILLIONTH PET from their in-store adoption centers. I adopted my dog Parker from one of these centers, and in fact signed up to volunteer shortly thereafter with the rescue group that was sponsoring the adoptions that day. SInce then, I've fostered more than 50 puppies for the group and transported hundreds more for them from rural shelters to the highly-populated DC area. PetSmart Chariities also gave a grant to another group that I volunteer with to do Trap Neuter and Return of feral cats in Arlington County, VA. TNR is a very important part of keeping the outdoor cat population healthy and of a manageable size. I love PetSmart Charities!
