We just completed a three year targeted spay-neuter project funded by Petsmart Charities that helped us spay and neuter 3,900 cats. We've reduced intake of cats from the target area into the local shelters by 16% since the start of the program. The funding helped us start our trap rental program which will continue to help save lives by reducing the free roaming cat population in our community. Our program manager Bryan Kortis was always very responsive to any questions we had and has done an amazing job educating the animal welfare community on the importance of TNVR. We are very grateful.

PETSMART CHARITIES INC uses the for profit company employees of PetSmart to acqurie dogs and cats for adoption. PETSMART CHARITIES INC does not train the PetSmart employees on the PETSMART CHARITIES INC standards it imposes on 501(c)(3) to bring dogs and cats into their adoption programs. PETSMART CHARITIES INC uses misinformed PetSmart employees to induce honest, respectable 501(c)(3) DOG & CAT Rescue Non-Profit Corporations to spend money, funds and resourses on rescued dogs and cats to go into the adoption WEEK-End events, then at the last minute or days before the EVENT, PETSMART CHARITIES INC. rejects the 501(c)(3) Rescue Non-Profit after having 501(c)(3) Rescue Non-Profit spend time, resources, funds, & money on the adoption project. I have been involved in the con-game that PETSMART CHARITIES INC & PetSmart employees play on local 501(c)(3) Rescue Non-Profits. You can not trust their business practices or their recruitment of local 501(c)(3) Rescue Non-Profits. Avoid this Charity At All Costs.
