The Humane Society of Kawartha Lakes Connects Adoptable Pets With Loving Homes During

PetSmart Charities of Canada National Adoption Week


Each year, an estimated one hundred thousand pets in Canada enter animal shelters in need of loving homes. The Humane Society of Kawartha Lakes is proud to partner with PetSmart Charities of Canada™ to bring adoptable pets to Peterborough PetSmart in support of National Adoption Week, taking place November 7-13.

During the in-store event, HSKL invites potential pet parents to meet adoptable pets in their area. Opportunities will be given to spend time with animals in need of loving homes in a spacious area. Staff and volunteers will help potential adopters learn about caring for a pet and the types of tools, products and services they may need.

“National Adoption Week is an ideal opportunity to give a pet what they need most – people to love,” said Andrew Fraser, adoption grants manager at PetSmart Charities of Canada. “When you adopt a pet, you also help shelters make more room for others in need. We’re thankful for HSKL’s partnership in preparing pets for the best start in their new homes.”


Adoptable pets will be available at the following times and PetSmart location:

November 7-13 Monday-Saturday 9am-9pm; Sunday 10am-7pm

PetSmart Peterborough - 898 Monaghan Rd #2, Peterborough, ON K9J 1Y9
