Volunteering

CAT Holiday Volunteer Opportunity

Meow! We are excited to announce that the Cat Adoption Team will have the opportunity to spread some holiday cheer to the PetSmart stores all through the month of December for the annual Santa Claws event. This popular event gives PetSmart customers and their pets the chance to pose for a photo with "Santa Claws." For every "Santa Claws" photo package purchased during a CAT shift, PetSmart donates $5 directly to CAT. This is a great opportunity for us to bring in some much-needed funds for CAT this holiday season! We need volunteers to staff the event every weekend in December leading up to the Christmas holiday.
