PetSmart Adoption Program

Mar 16, 2021 | Adoption Resources, Other Resources, WCAS News

There is power in partnership, and WCAS is certainly thankful for the powerful, lifesaving partnerships we have with six PetSmart locations across northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin.

  • Rockford, IL (6320 E. State St)
  • Machesney Park, IL (1526 West Lane Rd)
  • Janesville, WI (2700 Pontiac Pl Suite 100)
  • Brookfield, WI (585 Main St.)
  • Greenfield, WI (5005 S. 74th St.)
  • Pewaukee, WI (1275 Capitol Dr.)

These partnerships are made possible through the PetSmart Charities In-Store Adoption Program, which focuses on connecting homeless pets with loving families and optimizing pet adoption awareness within the community. Cats who are showcased at PetSmart Adoption Centers have a far shorter length of stay and are adopted much more quickly than if they’d remained at our facility.

All cats & kittens that are available for adoption at any of the six PetSmart locations are listed on our Adoptable Cats page with a notation of which PetSmart location they’re currently residing. If you’re interested in a cat or kitten located at a PetSmart location, we encourage you to contact the specific PetSmart store and confirm the desired cat’s availability and to verify the store’s adoption protocols.
