We envision a world in which every pet has a lifelong, loving home.

PetSmart Charities® and PetSmart Charities® of Canada are nonprofit animal welfare organizations that save the lives of homeless pets. More than 400,000 dogs and cats find homes each year through our adoption program in all PetSmart® stores and our sponsored adoption events. 

Spay / Neuter Grants

Help reduce the need to euthanize healthy dogs and cats with a PetSmart Charities® grant for your spay/neuter program.

Our focus is on impactful grants which provide for a long-term solution to pet overpopulation. In general, we support large-scale spay and neuter efforts with a minimum of 500 surgeries within a one year period.

Spay and Neuter Grants for Owned Pets

These grants provide funding for free or subsidized spay/neuter surgeries and basic preventative care as well as marketing and outreach.

Free-Roaming Cat Spay/Neuter Grants

These grants provide funding for Trap, Neuter and Return (TNR) projects designed to alter a substantial percentage of free-roaming cats in a specific target area
