In fiscal year 2014 the program transported more than 14,000 dogs.
emergency relief and other - petsmart charities emergency relief program assisted more than 7,900 pets in fiscal year 2014 by delivering much-needed supplies to animal rescue groups saving pets from man-made and natural disasters. Pci also provides funding for animal welfare conferences.
How can PetSmart claim to help animals when they take the bags of food not sold and discard it in the garbage and cutting the bag so it can not be take by people in need? I witnessed the employ discarding bags of dog and cat food in dumpsters cutting the bags open before doing so. Don't they realize that with there are a lot of shelters that could use that. I live in an area hit hard by Sandy and they could of gave it to the people in their own back yards. It's a disgrace!!!!
