Adopt an OHS animal during this weekend’s PetSmart adopt-a-thon

April 29, 2010
For immediate release

Visit local PetSmart stores this weekend to adopt a cat from the Ottawa Humane Society (OHS), and provide it with a new and loving home.

PetSmart Charities is hosting its National Adoption Weekend April 30—May 2. The goal of the three-day sponsored adoption event is to find homes for more than 18,500 animals across North America.

The OHS has partnered with local pet stores since 1994 to adopt out animals in the community. Last year, 1,440 animals found new and loving homes through this program. Animals adopted through pet store locations receive the same medical procedures as animals adopted through the OHS main location, and the adoption screening process is the same as well.

OHS cats are available for adoption at the following PetSmart locations in Ottawa:
3161 Greenbank Rd. Unit 64 (Loblaw Plaza)

255 Kanata Ave. (near Terry Fox Drive)

2002 Mer Bleue Rd.

1750 Innes Rd. (at Cyrville Road)
Zaza is a two-year-old calico available for adoption at the Barrhaven PetSmart store this weekend.
