PetSmart (16758 Southwest Freeway)
Sugar Land Petopia partners with PetSmart to find forever homes for its furry friends. The partnership provides an opportunity to display adoptable animals in the community on a daily basis. Cats are housed at the store seven days a week, and dogs are at the store on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. If a potential adopter finds a pet they like, they can take the cat or dog home for a sleepover to see if it is the perfect fit.
It is a win for everybody — the animals, the City’s Animal Services Department, PetSmart and the adopters. The animals are seen by a greater number of potential adopters, which helps find homes for rescued dogs and cats. The partnership is made possible by Petopia volunteers who commit their weekends to finding homes for animals at the City’s shelter. More volunteers are needed to assist with programs such as this. Those interested in adding a four-legged member to their family might consider visiting the City’s adoption events at PetSmart.
