This is Jack. Tom and I adopted him on Saturday from Last Chance Animal Rescue, via the Petsmart Luv-A-Pet Adoption Center at Petsmart’s Alexandria store.
It’s springtime, which means shelters are being inundated with huge numbers of kittens and puppies, sometimes faster than they can find new homes for them.
If you have a pet, be sure it’s spayed or neutered. And if you don’t have one, or if you’ve got room for one more, consider adopting one from any of the DC area’s myriad animal shelters and rescues. In addition to Last Chance, you can find an extensive list of shelters online. Or you can do what we did and head to your closest Petco or Petsmart on a Saturday afternoon- both chains actively support the work of local rescues.
When we adopted Jack through Petsmart, they gave us tons of coupons for pet supplies, a free visit to the Banfield vet office, and a free 30 days of pet health insurance.
