Adopt your feline prince or princess during PetSmart Charities® National Adoption Weekend at your local PetSmart® store or participating shelter!

Animal welfare groups in our region are teaming up with each other and PetSmart Charities® this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, April 29th, 30th and May 1st for a Royal Wedding Adoption CATs-travaganza!

With the warmer temperatures, cats are pouring into our shelters and foster homes at a staggering rate, so in response, the Cleveland Animal Protective League (APL), Geauga Humane Society’s Rescue Village, PAWS Ohio, and Pawsibilities (Humane Society of Greater Akron) have come together and are reducing their cat adoption fees to send a strong message in a unified voice that these wonderful animals deserve their chance to live happily ever after in their own royal kingdom!

On April 29th – May 1st, during the PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend, adoption fees will be royally reduced to $5 for the first adult cat (aged 1 year old and up) or $20 for the first kitten (less than 1 year old) adopted to each household. The Cleveland APL will honor this fee all three days at its 1729 Willey Ave animal shelter location in Cleveland and on Sunday, May 1st from noon to 3pm at the Willoughby PetSmart store. All cats and kittens will be spayed or neutered, tested for FeLV and/or FIV (please check with each organization for details), have received age-appropriate vaccinations, and treatment for worms and fleas.

These fees will be also be honored by the following groups at their shelters and listed PetSmart store locations. Royal Wedding CATs-travaganza Adoption Locations:
