How does a dog get their name?
Hey it's SF-SPCA Homecoming Adoptathon Weekend!

Sept 14-16 PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend

This weekend September 14-16, 2012 is the PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend, being held at your local PetSmart store. More than 2,000 animal welfare organizations in all 1,250 PetSmart stores will provide opportunities for pet adoptions to find lifelong, loving homes for thousands of pets.

Every adoption benefits participating local shelters and rescue agencies which receive $35 in adoption-reward grants from PetSmart Charities for every pet they adopt during the event.
